Question Nupro

I was just given a sample pkg of Nupro but it doesn't have dosage amounts on it (or a scoop). Can anyone tell me about the right amount to give a 5 pound chi in terms of teaspoons (since there is no scoop)?
Thanks!!!

According to this: All Natural Dog Supplement | Dog Vitamin Supplements Dog Vitamins Arthritis Dogs Treatments
You would give 1 teaspoon per day.

I only ever gave a pinch and being you've never used it with your chi before, I'd start out with a pinch to see how she handles it and maybe work up to a tsp over time.

i give my 2 at the sametime. i use the cup that comes with it and only fill it up to half of the line it gives and then mix with a little water...stir and serve when i first started out though i only gav a tiny bit to see if they would actually eat their food with it GOODLUCK!

im still using the nupro i got it because of all the benefits it had besides the main reason i got it was for the joints to be strong. KC had a happening not too long ago where one of her hind kneecap popped out for a couple weeks and went back in. the vet said that it would be a reoccurence where it would pop back out again after it popped back in on its own and its still in i believe that Nupro did help on that! Ive heard of Nupro helping for hairloss as well so I been trying it out for Dexter but im not sure if it's working or not but atleast he'll have stronger joints anyway. what i fear is when they get older that they will develop the infamous luxated patella like every chihuahua goes through...so i'm tryin my best to prevent it from happening.

im glad ur bunch likes it!
