Default MVP K9 Supplements for Dogs?

I was looking something up at a rottweiler magazine (the total rottweiler) and on the left side is a banner for MVP K9 supplements, does anyone know anything at all about this? I mean any friends, breeders, pet owners, etc. that uses this? Its very pricey, but I'm very curious. This is what they have for the puppy supplement as for as ingredients and the analysis list: http://www.mvpk9supplements.com/nutr...estarfacts.jpg. Thoughts?

I think I'm *almost* finished in my information gathering phase , I just need to go back and start making my list so by this time or later next year I will know exactly what I need to get. I'm still debating about kibbles because I do want to feed on a rotation eventually, since the pup will get raw as well. I just want the added benefit of a overall healthy pup. If MVP isn't recommended, what supplements work for you?

ETA: I'm also thinking about investing in some cookie sheets, blender, and mixer for baking homemade dog treats eventually and just buying really special dog treats and safe human food as treats (both for training and a once in a while treat, just because). The pup will get RMBs and perhaps raw/uncooked pig and cow ears (if I can find a willing butcher).

I don't recommend supplements like these at all, especially for a puppy. If you want to add small amounts of green tripe, egg yolks, goats milk yogurt or very small chunks of pork fat or beef fat then that is fine. Not all at once of course.

All the modern kibbles have high levels of essentials vitamins and they are all proteinated and balanced.

I have friends that have used the K9 Show Stopper supplements and found no improvement whatsoever. Just a waste of money.

Puppies need an integrated, consistent well made food. If you pick the right food then you are set.

There are some good nutritional supplements with whole food ingredients that have high protein and high fat levels but I doubt your dog will need them and they are definitely not for puppies. These are concentrated food sources rather than vitamin supplements.

You mentioned rotational feeding, well think logically about this. This causes more problems behaviorally than letting a puppy sleep in your bed. Healthwise, it offers nothing but downside down the road.

I have one dog in Minn. now with a trainer doing 15 miles a day plus water work and he is eating nothing but Precise Endurance which is what the trainer feeds. I often recommend Precise here.

I've never used this before, but i've used bully max dog supplements as a source of a multivitamin. Our vet approved it and my dog did great with it. It's really similar to nuvet plus if you are familiar with that. Also, we use Merrick Before Grain chicken and rice as well. I've also had great results with this dog food. Good luck!
