Yes! While most pet food manufacturers that use high quality ingredients design their food to provide the right amount of what puppies need, with the rapid growth that occurs during puppyhood, specifically with large breeds, puppies could run into joint problems well before their senior years. Many vets encourage giving puppies a daily dose of glucosamine to keep their joints as strong as possible as they grow into their larger frame. This means as early as 14 weeks of age for the Advanced Hip & Joint soft chews. Glucosamine can also be helpful for puppies with hip dysplasia or who are predisposed to developing this disorder. Additionally, most puppies will benefit from the Omega 3-6-9 chews that supply essential fatty acids not commonly found in a commercial diet. The freeze dried treats are ok in moderation for puppies, and other products such as the ear wipes and ear cleanser are appropriate for all dogs over 10 weeks of age.
