I was wondering how many people give their dogs supplements, and if so, what kind and for what (i.e. specific issue or general well health), and do you notice anything with it.

I give glucosamine/chondroitin/msm, fish oil (1000mgs. per 20lbs. of body weight), vitamin E, and Esther-C (2000mgs.)

I also give Missing Link, I really like that product. Some dogs are sensitive to flaxseed though.

The second ingredient in missing link is molasses. All that supplies is a sugar for taste and palatability. If you want to try an excellent supplement, I recommend Timberwolf Wild Elements and their pharmaceutical grade Wild Salmon Oil. It really helps with the coat and general health. Go to the product page on the Timberwolf website to read about it.

I feed Timberwolf, so I'm familiar with their other products. I'm happy with Missing Link now. I don't think my dogs' coats could be any shinier or their skin any healthier unless I put them on a raw diet...LOL! Thanks for the suggestion - I'll definitely keep it in mind!

I just did a little bit of research on blackstrap molasses and found this website. You might find it interesting: http://www.whfoods.com/genpage.php?tname=foodspice&dbid=118

Someone was telling me about Missing Llink the other day, now I really want to try it. It is just a general supplement correct?

It's just a really good overall supplement that is supposed to fill all the gaps in your dog's diet. I'm not really loyal to just Missing Link brand. I've used Wellness Super 5 supplements before when I found them on clearance. I had good results with that brand as well. The Timberwolf looks pretty good. I might give that a try next! :lol: Chico is on a prescription strength Missing Link that is only sold through vets. It's like twice the price. I'm not terribly happy with it, I think the regular version was just fine. I would like to find something without flaxseed because I have heard of a lot of dogs being sensitive to it. Dogs don't utilize omega 3's derived from plants that easily. Fish oil is much more beneficial to them.

I don't think molasses is all that bad, it is a natural form of suger.

My Solid Gold Seameal has the following (tell me what you think):

Dried Seaweed, Flax Seed Meal, Dehydrated lemon Powder, Carotene, Chlorophyll, Vitamin B12,
Dried Aspergillus Oryzae fermentation product, dried Aspergillus Niger Fermentation product,
Pineapple, and (interestingly enough) lactose.

And then they have all these nutrients listed and the amounts:

Calcium, Phosphorus, sodium, magnesium, iron, copper, manganese, zinc, iodine, Vitamin D, Vitamin E,
Thiamine Hydrochloride, Riboflavin, d-Pantothenic Acid, Niacin, Folic Acid, Vitamin B12, Sulfur, Cobalt,
Molybdenum, Biotin, Menadione, Ascorbic Acid, Linoleic Acid (omega 6), Linoleic Acid (omega 3), and
Oleic Acid (omega 9).

Someone once said that they sell it at petco/petsmart

I had Kate on it once, I didn't really notice any difference so I stopped giving it to her

Am I reading the info. about Missing Link correctly?

I just went to the PetVet website. Missing Link is priced at 100 dollars for a supplement? Is that right??? That seems incredibly high, doesn't it? How long does it last? Are there cheaper versions that are just as good? That's more than the Evo dog food I buy Sophie.

The only high prices I see are in packs of certain numbers. Like you can get a 10 pack of the 1lb bag for $95. If you just buy the individual bag it is like $6 or whatever. And noooooo need for the packs of them because since they are natural, they can go bad

That sounds better

Ok, that sounds like what I was thinking it should cost. I didn't understand what the ten pack meant..I thought each pack lasted like a week. I may try to find this at PetCo.

I've seen it priced at around $35 dollars for a decent sized bag.

Solid Gold Seameal costs $20 for a pound, it lasts a few months because you only use 1 tbsp every meal.
