Dear Dr. Kruger
We got a new puppy a St. Bernard, it is 12-weeks old. Now, we would like to ask you if we should use with each feeding the Pregnancy and Puppy Formulation, what time of period. Or, for prevent the Puppy of elbow and hip dysplasia, can we add each feeding Healthy Joint. We think because of the ingredients Glucosamine and chondroitin, that might be an idea. We also have an older dog 9-year old, and use Healty Joint with a very good result! With best Regards

I would feed both the Puppy formula and the Healthy Joint formula to your puppy. It will not give him too many vitamins and minerals. This way he will have the protection of the points and the beneﬁts of all the other ingredients. Hip and elbow dysplasia are hereditary diseases so you can not depend on any supplement totally preventing these diseases. I have raised German Shepherd Dogs for 44 years and have a lot of experience With HD and ED. So, please don’t expect total protection from these diseases.
Good luck with your new puppy.
