Nuvet

Can anyone tell me anything about these vitamins? My breeder will extend the puppy's health guarantee from 3 to 5 years of you can prove the puppy was getting the vitamins for all of that time.

Thanks!

Don't need extra vitamins, there are better things to give.

multi level marketing scam. As useless as it's warranty.

Your breeder benefits from you feeding the vitamins. You have to be really careful adding vitamins if you are feeding a well-balanced commercial food, because they ALREADY have the needed vitamins included. Some vitamins are toxic at too-high levels. The ones that aren't toxic when fed in too-high levels just get peed out, and are not used.

I'm still not sure what I'm going to feed him. I bought a small bag of puppy orijen just to have on hand. Ideally I would like to feed freeze dried or dehydrated raw. I'm struggling with trying to figure out which has the most bang for my buck. It seems as if the honest kitchen does, but I don't know the quantity that he would be fed to know how long the bags of primal, sojo's, or HK would last.

If I feed him one of those brands, those are considered well balanced, right?

Thanks!

I believe the Nuvet products are kind of like a pyramid deal where they seller gets kickbacks. I had a groomer that was pushing these vitamins and said she had a client with poodles that had eye staining and they took these and the staining completely disappeared. I was quite skeptical. I actually purchased a bottle and gave Willow a few but decided to stop. She didn't have any reaction or anything but it just seemed kind of phony and they contain so many strange herbs and whatnot. Plus they are expensive.

Yup. I haven't used Primal, but have used both THK and Sojo's. I decided to stay with THK, because they never source anything from China. Solo's told me (at that time... things can always change) that they TRIED to source locally as much as possible, but that at times they had to source their trace mineral mix from "other places", and couldn't define "other places" to my satisfaction. The dogs liked both equally, and they seemed similar in cost.

I would still be using THK if it weren't for Kodi's food intolerances, and the need for a limited ingredient diet for him.

I feed THK Preference and add my own protein (currently ground up antibiotic free chicken thighs). Most times I add a little coconut or salmon oil. A 3 lb. box lasts over a month feeding her a half cup per day. I switched from Stella and Chewy's freeze dried so I could have a little money left in the food budget for the humans

My breeder also recommended NuVet vitamins. I give Leo 1/2 a wafer once a day. He loves the taste.
