Hi guys. My girl is 8 weeks today and I'm in the process of transitioning her to Orijen Large breed puppy food. Would you all recommend any additives i.e vitamin c, pumpkin ect?
Thanks in advance!

The only supplement I do for young healthy dogs is fish oil for omega 3. If you are feeding a complete and balanced diet, supplements are unnecessary as the food is already supplemented and you can overdo certain vitamins/minerals. Once my dogs hit senior age, I usually add some kind of joint supplement as well but that’s about it.

Sounds good!

I have been using springtime - longevity for my guy. I have heard it can be helpful for joints and cartilage, but not sure it is actually evidence based.
