Nuvet Plus?

I am picking up an 8 week old puppy next week from a local breeder. The breeder asked me if I had heard of Nuvet Plus and highly recommended it. I have done some Google searches for it and found nothing but glowing reports about how good it is. After much research I have decided to feed my puppy Canidae All Life Stages. Do you think Nuvet is necessary if I feed my puppy Canidae? I have read that too much calcium and protein can cause GSD puppies to grow too fast. Candidae seems to have the proper protein % and the proper calcium to phosphorous ratio.

Re: Nuvet Plus?

personally, i didn't see any point to it, and no matter what I did, Chase wouldn't eat it.

The breeder I got Ava from told me I had to keep her on it but funny how she wouldn't eat it and she is allergic to yeast!

Re: Nuvet Plus?

I have done some more research on Nuvet plus and found that breeders appear to get a "kick back" from Nuvet if they recommend it to their clients. Each breeder has a unique code tied to Nuvet that they want you to use when ordering it from Nuvet's web site.

I just had a 10 year old GSD die from cancer and I am looking for anything that might help prevent it from happening again with my new pup. Nuvet sort of sounds like a scam though.

Re: Nuvet Plus?

Yes this is true only to people that are distributers of the product. But it is a great product our guy's are on it. They also have a vitiamin that is called New Joint which is also good

Re: Nuvet Plus?

Thanks Chuck, at what age did you start giving it to your dogs?

Re: Nuvet Plus?

I'm not to sure about giving pups that are 8 weeks old the vitiamins, but we do give our Fantom and Spirit which is 5 months old each one a day. As for younger pups you can talk to someone from Nuvet to see.

It is not a scam. It is simply a pet vitamin that is sold through network marketing...like Flint River Ranch Pet foods and Healthypetnet products.

Re: Nuvet Plus?

I think it's legit. I also think that if you have a pet who is relatively healthy, you don't need sumplements, just a good diet. If the dog is healthy, I don't hink you'll see a change with NuVet. Now if there are problems, supplements like NuVet can help the dog.

Since Chase was healthy, and on a very balanced diet, the extra NuVet provided didn't really matter.

Re: Nuvet Plus?

It is legit, my old boss used to use it and refered it to his customers,

I myself used to use Nupro, and now use Dog Bloom, my dogs are healthy, I just use it to keep them healthy, or in hopes of keeping them healthy, kind of like taking vitamins for yourself.
