After the loss of our first beloved 14yr GSD earlier this summer, we are taking the plunge again and starting all over with an 8 week old pup. With our first boy, I didn't start giving supplements until his later years in order to help/prevent arthritis and to promote general overall health. What I've learned over the years is mostly for an adult dog... so I may be a bit lacking when it comes to puppies!
I gave Fish oil, Vit C, turmeric, Vit E, MSM, probiotic, glucosamine complex (Synflex), Vit B, ACV, coconut oil, kefir, garlic. I was thinking of giving the young pup most of these for overall health, probably leave out Vit E, MSM, Vit B. What do you think? Any other suggestions that may be beneficial for a growing pup?
We were feeding our dog Acana which he did great on, but I'm thinking of trying RAW as well as kibble for the new pup. On the days that I feed kibble, I'd like to add some digestive enzymes... any particular ones that work well? Or is there a whole food I can give that's a good source of digestive enzymes?
