Joint supplements and pups?

Is it safe to give 4 month old pups joint supplements? I was thinking of getting this:

2 tabs a day for coco.

Per 3 tablets:
Glucosamine 500mg
MSM 400mg
yucca 60mg
Vitamin C 60mg
d-alpha tocopheryl 60 iu
omega 3 11mg
omega 6 5 mg

It's safe.

I don't know much about long term yucca usage though. I know it's an anti-inflammatory, but not much else about it.

Re: Joint supplements and pups?

Long term yucca usage is fine, especially at that dosage.

Springtime Inc., my favorite stop for joint health shopping, has a good sale right now if you want to look at something a little simpler:
