I am interested in whether anyone feeds their puppies or adult dogs supplements with their food. I was considering the following two products and wondered whether anyone has used them or has an opinion to share. Thanks.
Neither page can be found.
I am not one who supplements. I feel if the dog food is correct for the dog, you don't need to. The only thing extra mine get is G/C for the joints.

Sorry about the links. I re-posted them and hopefully they work correctly now.
What is GC?
I am in the same thinking. Dog foods should already be balanced with the proper vitamin/minerals.
I only use gluc/cond and probiotics.
I will only use vitamin/min supplements in a dog like my Cinder who has a compromised immune system and is on a few meds. I feel that medication keeps the body from properly metabolising. I have yet to give her vit/min because right now it seems to be going so well with just the probiotics.
I only use cosequin and glucosimine (G&C) for my boys. They are on high quality kibble and don't need any other supplements.

I use Cosequin DS (but will be switching to Dasuquin when my jar runs out; both glucosamine/chondroitin) preventatively for Henry's joints and because he's had GI issues ever since he was young, he gets digestive enzymes and probiotics.
Only Glucosamin/Condroiten and a fish oil for their coat especially when the heat is on in the house.
Puff gets a Kirkland (from Costco) G&C tab plus a Kirkland Fish Oil cap daily with her food.

Wow - Thanks for all the quick responses! I suppose "G&C" is a product name that comes in tablet form? What is "cosequin" and "Glucosamin/Condroiten"? Sorry about all the questions, but it seems that people are using SOME supplements, just not the ones that I posted a link to.....or am I misunderstanding what I'm reading?
I just bought Grizzly Salmon Oil Omega 3/6. The pet shop i get my food from said she is shedding alot and swimming alot does it so they recommended it, haven't started it yet but i will at her dinner tonight. 2 drops in each of her 2 meals.
