According Dr. Laura Robinson, DVM, if you notice your dog experiencing the same issues over and over again, it might be the time to start adding a supplement into your dog's diet. For example, itchy skin or digestive issues on a regular basis can suggest allergies or vitamin and nutrient imbalances which can be solved by supplementing.
If hip dysplasia has been diagnosed early on in life, you should add a joint supplement to your dogs diet as soon as possible.
Also, when your dog starts to age and you begin to notice limping or difficulty getting up, supplements can help slow down the effects of aging and alleviate pain and uncomfort.
