    Those who supplement, what brands do you use? My pup is a Lab/Dane so I'd like to get him started when he comes home.

    I order Cosequine with MSM from Amazon when it's on sale.
    I'm not sure you should be supplement a tiny puppy. I hope someone with more experience will step in.

    I have no idea about what age or brands. My three and a half year old staffy x has recently been diagnosed with mild arthritis and hip dysplasia. My vet recommended any brand, she said she could have given me some and charged me the earth, she said any human brand was ok. She also recommended starting my dog on a formula to help with mobility. As I have just bought a gigantic bag of her other dog food I will start that in the future, but of course I have a diagnosis.

    I have no worries about Glucosamine or fish oil. I would never do calcium or anything.

    Glucosamine or fish oil are okay for puppies, just no calcium or other vitamin/supplement as that should come from their food.

    Puff and I have taken the same brand for the last 10 or more years -- *Costco's "Kirkland" Glucosamine 1500 mg. & Chondroitin 1200 mg. tab and their Fish Oil 1000 mg. capsule.

    My knees have ached when I've stopped taking G&C so I take it daily. Consumer Research had an article maybe 5+ years ago evaluating the effectiveness of G&C (they said most people receive some benefit). And maybe it was in another issue they ranked the Kirkland G&C as being among those with the most effective ingredients and definitely the most economical.

    * Costco = membership warehouse club, "Kirkland" is their signature, "house" brand

    My girl Java gets Hylasport Canine (Gluc/Chond/HA & MSM) and Grizzly Salmon Oil.
    If your puppy is healthy then there is no reason to supplement at this point and I wouldn't do it. It's a waste of money.
    Java has multiple orthopedic issues so I supplement her with Hylasport, Grizzly, Vit E, Vit C and MSM.
    Moka is 100% healthy so she only gets 500 mg of Vit. C.
