Hi

We have probably all heard alot about how labradors inparticular, suffering from arthritis, especially in old age. A good diet can sometimes aid or prevent this, but does anyone feed their labs any vitamins or supplements as a precaution to avoid this problem or help an existing one?

If you do, what types do you give?

Thanks in advance :)

my neighbours labs suffer from arthritis and she gives them glucosamine for their joints, it helps to ease the joints and has given then a new lease of life.

Hi,

I posted a similar Q the other day, as basil has just started agility but is healthy and fit.

I think i'm going to start giving omega 3 each day too :)

Indie gets a couple of glucosamine tablets per week, and a dash of green lipped mussel extract a couple of times per week.

Other than that, they don't get any added oils, vitamins or minerals, as they have these in good amounts in the BARF diet.
