Glucosamine Chondroitin & MSM

I use MSM on all of my puppies and adult dogs. It is a great way to aide in proper joint fluid levels, joint and bone growth. I start my puppies on MSM at 6 weeks of age (500mg once a day) until 6 months, then start them on 1000mg once a day until 7 to 8 years of age when I transition to Glucosamine Chondroitin with MSM. I prefer to use human grade supplements simply because they are more cost affective for me, but Nupro is an amazing option for a dog graded supplement.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a great supplement for your growing puppy and adult dogs.

I use human grade supplements on my dogs (I purchase the Kirkland Vitamin C from Costco or powdered Nutricost Vitamin C on Amazon). Starting at 5 weeks of age I give 500mg every other day until 12 to 14 weeks. Then 500mg once a day until 6 to 8 months of age. After 6 or 8 months I increase puppies to their daily dose of 1000mg once a day for life.

Vitamin C is used to help with cartilage build up, proper joint/bone growth, siding with weak pasturns, loose/flat feet and a multitude of other growth related issues.

Omega 3 Oils

Omega 3 oils (I use Sardine & Anchovy oil as Salmon oil can have a toxicity level when used often) on my dogs food once a week, as a great way to keep their coats shiny and skin healthy along with new studies have shown that Omega 3's are a great cancer cell fighting agent. I purchase the Iceland Pure Uncented Sardine-Anchovy Oil from Chewy.com

Pre & Probiotics

Pre/Probiotics are a great way to keep the GI tract in check. I also have found it to be very beneficial to my girls especially while they are pregnant for not only their owner personal benefit but also have seen my puppies have 1) less prone to allergies (skin and food) and 2) they seem to have less GI issues as well.

I use 1 packet every 3 days for my dogs/puppies. I use Tomlyn or VetOne Advita powdered packets that are tasteless / scentless which makes it really easy to put on your dogs food (especially those picky pups). These cane both be found on Amazon and Chewy. Forti-Flora is also another great option for pre & probiotics, this can usually be purchased straight from your veterinarian as well as online stores such as Amazon and Chewy.
