What supplements is everyone using?
And which ones have you noticed a marked improvement?
This is what I have in my dog cabinet, and also use Zesty Paws salmon oil.

Finn is still young, but starting next year, he'll be on Cosequine for long term joint care.
He does get Omega 3, and 6, biscuits, so I guess that counts.

I'm trying the immune chews on June. Late summer/early fall is when she has had ear problems. The vets think it's seasonal allergies. I have no idea if it will help her, but thought it's worth a try. The skin, and coat chews were given to me to try, because I use the same brand of salmon oil.
June is also my guinea pig on joint supplements. She's 10 1/2 now.
Jasper is 7, and I think Hunter is 5. They will both eat anything you hand them. So if picky June, and Shine won't eat it, it becomes theirs.
Glyco Flex seemed to work well, but I'd have to mix it with something good, or the girls wouldn't touch it.
Plus for some reason, Shine has a weak stomach when it comes to most joint supplements. So we have been trying quite a few different ones.

Not currently a vizsla pup but we’ve been having great results with Winpro. Particularly the training and focus, she seems to have a easier time settling after a good woods hike with lots of scents and stimulus. She’ll nap in her kennel in the bed of the truck in the shade with a fan and some cooling pads no issues. I think she keeps her focus a little longer too, before she gives you that overtired, “can’t hear you” attitude. Hehehe

They also have a gut, allergy, and joint heath types. Only issue is the treats are kind of big, so they can fill them up if you decide to give all the kinds. We’ll just give her focus and training after bfast and the others throughout the morning as intermittent rewards. I’ll give her joint health ones after dinner.

when at home i tend to cut the winpro into small pieces and mix it with a dusty type of small cut treat and put them in a treat ball. i need the dusty type (something freeze dried like beef lung) in order to avoid having them stick to the wall of the treat ball. it makes a great mid afternoon snack and mental stimulation.

I've got our boy on keepers mix by dorwest herbs for general health and glucosamine and chondroitin again by dorwest herbs . I was advised when he turned 2 to start him on g&c as gun dogs are more likely to get arthritis earlier due to the high energy level. Whether this is a proven fact I don't know.

ACV is acidic on teeth, and can cause enamel damage. I would think small amounts would be fine, but be careful not to overdo it.
I don't use brewer's yeast, but I could see where it may have some benefits.
I would have to do more research on it, and really haven't.

The the dermatologist knew what she was talking about, when she said "See you next year."
Just noticed this evening while cleaning June's ears, she has the start of a ear infection. This will make 3 years in a row, that she gets a ear infection at the same time of the year.
I'm going have to give a thumbs down, on the allergy supplements.

occasionally I'll give Elvis a few days on green lipped mussell tablets, usually at the start of the working season.

Yes, ragweed count is high right now.
It's always bad at this time of year, and coincides with her ear problems.
At least it's not something that is year round.
