Are supplements necessary?
My pup Jase will be 5 months old this month. I have him on the best large breed puppy food available (it is also the food that the breeder uses and recommends). He comes from a really good breeder with the highest breeding award in the country, and I know that all of her dogs are checked carefully for any possible hip problems to determine whether they will be bred with or not.
Despite this, I have still had a few people tell me that my dog needs to be on supplements for his joints. Reading up on it hasn't really cleared things up. Does anyone here use supplements? Is it even necessary for young dogs, or something that is given to help elderly dogs?
