Q. I want to give my dog supplements to keep him healthy. Would you recommend? Something with calcium for his bones or what kind of vitamin would you suggest?
I visited your web site today to find out what kind of vitamins to supplement my puppy with. To be quite honest, I did not have much time to go item by item, but I really want to buy something. Would you recommend something with calcium for his bones or what kind of vitamin would you suggest? I'm currently feeding Royal canine which is a good brand, but still want to give him some supplements...

In advance thanks for your time.

A. If you are feeding kibble, I am not sure I would supplement with too much. I would not add additional calcium, giving that could cause growth problems.

The one thing I would suggest is Salmon Oil and Vitamin E.

We give this to all our dogs regardless of the diet they are on. Hope this helps.

Grizzly Salmon Oil
Grizzly Salmon Oil
$49.99
I use this in my own kennel. My dogs love it. I have dogs that will spit a gell cap out. These same dogs love this salmon oil. It's an excellent all-natural source of Omega3 and Omega 6. It's easier than capsules for a puppy to swallow. Freezing of Salmon Oil is not recommended. Salmon Oil should be used within 3 months of opening a bottle.
