Vitamin or fish oil supplements?

by MICHELLE
(Nashville)

I give Russell, our GP rescue of about 2 years, a Blue Buffalo food. Do you think I need to give him any supplements or vitamins? I had a supply of 30 day Pet Tabs multi vitamins and I think his coat little a little shinier but who knows.

Kibble
by: Donna

I would advise you to get your dog off of Blue Buffalo. There are ingredients in it that aren't declared. This would put the red flags up for me.

Knowledge is power. Here is information on fish oil supplement.

The best diet is species appropriate diet and that is raw diet. Do you research on it. You feed 2% of your dog's ideal body weight. Aim for 5-50% organ meat, 10% bone and 80% muscle meat. Go to you butchers, local abattoir, and any other company who sells raw. Your pet store is expensive to get these items.

Not a big believer
by: Ed A from NJ

I am not a big believer in sedatives unless you are having a problem and the doctor says you need something. Blue buffalo is a pretty good food with there wilderness line leading the way. I boosted my dogs by adding 13 ounces of white meat chicken to there kibble. I also feed them twice a day to avoid them eating too much at once and getting bloat. Big Beau lived to 8 on this diet and carried 165 pounds without ever getting hip or joint problems my girl buttercup made it to 14 plus years on the same diet. No my new rescue 6 year old Maximoose and my 7 month old Newfoundland will follow in the same diet. I use taste of the wild as my kibble base but used blue buffalo until they got older and it seemed buttercup could no longer tolerate the blue buffalo. I also attached a picture of Beau 7 years ago they picked my Beau to be on one of there ten card set that they put in the retail large bags of food that year. I was very proud.
