As a dog breeder, animal health is my top priority.  That’s why I enthusiastically recommend NuVet Plus immune system builder and NuJoint DS, and to all of my customers.  Simply put, it is the best nutritional supplement I have researched. Having said this most dog foods are complete nutrition for adult dogs but puppies need a boost in immune system building in the first 20 weeks of life. In addition, labradors are sporting breeds and, in my opinion, should always receive joint supplementation of Glucosamine and Chondroitin as adults and seniors. I take Glucosamine and Chondroitin myself for arthritis.

NuJoint Double-Strength (DS) is a hip and joint therapy supplement for dogs of all ages by promoting optimal joint health. NuJoint DS has increased amounts of the active ingredients MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Glucosamine, and Chondroitin.  NuJoint DS also includes Vitamin C (Ester-C®) which is required for the synthesis of collagen (a component of joint cartilage), and it can also reduce free radical damage to cartilage.

NuVet Plus is an immune system builder with a precise balance of vitamins, minerals, omega fatty acids, amino acids and high-potency antioxidants and ideal for filling the immunity gap all puppies experience.  That’s why it works so well through all three stages of a dog’s life. I highly recommend NuVet Plus to keep your pet on the path to perfect health! You can order online at NuVet or directly from the manufacturer by calling 800-474-7044 and using Order Code: 88161.  NuVet also offers “Autoship” which saves an additional 15% and assures you’ll not run out of NuVet supplements. “AutoShip” option is at check out.
