Remember, your vet knows best. Talk to your vet before establishing your dog or dogs on any diets.

GNC Superfoods

We give our sibe and GSD (sibe only right now because Juno has had tummy issues) the recommended doses of GNC Superfood for pups, everyone that I've asked who uses it loves it and says its awesome. Does anyone hear have anything to say about it?

PoBD do you have a package available so that you can print out the ingredients.
Beef flavour? from what ? that doesn't sound too real.
Web site warned intermittent feeding , that is a red flag for me.

I went to the first link on your list and saw nothing but adds about one of the worst dog food made today, which would be Iams. I would not trust this site. They were correct in to much can be bad which is why I only give my dog half the recommended amount.

You said your "your vet knows best" but my vet said no raw foods, and i want to feed my dog raw foods. and i know the nutritional dearth it can have on the dog, thus i research in supplements. Problem is i do not possess the technical know-how on how much supplements and what supplements to give for raw diets. Thoughts?

Another link to share:
Degenerative Myelopathy of German Shepherds

This is Dr. Clemmons' DM site, which I was sent to by my vet when we were talking about supplements for an aging GSD.

Clemmons has a long list of recommended basic supplements for healthy GSDs. His view is that these may be protective against DM (i.e., that the DM gene may not get "turned on" in dogs that carry it).
