Pick up some good feed keep their water clean and fresh, up to date on vaccinations and they will be fine. If you need to feed supplements you should just buy better feed.

I would also a good wormer. I agree with every thing else.

Glucosamine is good for old dogs. No need for anything extra for your pups other than what's listed above. Good quality feed, clean fresh water, regular wormer including for heart worms and I will add the necessity of keeping all dogs on flea and tick prevention.

The same thing people use to help with inflammation and joint health work as well for dogs. A good fish oil high in omega 3s ( wild caught cold water fish have higher omega 3s than famed fish) Glucosamine is also good for joint health. Both of these are readily available. With both of these you will need to do a larger dose for the first month to build the levels up. Dogs are expensive and we expect a lot out of them so why would you not want to help with there joint health.

Thatís exactly what I was thing . We have our pups on great food well at least I think so . I was just wondering because we have put a lot of money in these 3 pups already, which the food we feed has glucosamine in it I was also wondering if thatís enough for them. I just want the best for my hounds and I donít want to run in to problems when they get older in the teens you know what I mean.

I use Nexgaurd, Itís 50$ Every 6 months. Itís a chewable that you get from the vet along with heart worm meds. I also only use cedar shaving bedding and spray my kennel regularly with permethrin.

We did have cedar shavings but a friend of ours told us not to use cedar with hounds because it will mess up there scent . There is actually an article about it to if I can find it I will try and figure out how to share it on this post. But since talking to that friend and reading that article I have talked to a couple old timer coon hunters and they have said the same thing. So quit using the cedar chips which sucks because it keeps them smelling good lol. I will definitely look in to all that thank you .

Without trying to be a butt, be careful who you are taking advice from. Cedar shavings will in no way affect a dogs ability. Iíve had them in dog houses, dog boxes, and dog boxes made out of it filled with shavings and never had a dog perform any different with or without cedar shavings. That is an old wives tale like much of the stuff you will read on here.
You will never run a coon dog hard enough to worry about supplements making a difference for their body. When they age and get 7+ you can add some joint supplements to help prolong productivity but even then, a dog is not going to do much real hunting past the age of 10. A pleasure hunt here and there yes, but you canít put 60 miles on them in 2 days like you can at 3-7.

1-800-petmeds. Super joint enhancer. Not a hunting dog, but have a Rottweiler/Pitt mix. Almost a year and a half ago. She could barely walk on her back legs. She did alot of balancing on her front legs. Especially after walking a 100 yards. We contiplated putting her down. Was suggested to try these.
Not kidding.. within 3 weeks, was really doing well. I could really see a diffetence. Recently, I saw her chase down a squirrel and catch it. An entirely different dog. I give her one every other day in the warm months and 1 a day in the colder months.
Don't know about hunting dogs, but I do swear by them.

I give Doc Roy's multi-vitamins. They're a 1 a day type of vitamins. Not sure if you have females but it can make a difference in the long run for them.

The dog is yours but the way I look at it, better be safe than sorry. And just because you feed a "higher end" dog food doesn't mean that you won't have health set backs with any dog. But it will minimize them for the most part, just like Jen said.

Say what you want about cedar shavings but I've had two dogs that were allergic to them. One was going to the world hunt and my handler lived in the same part of the country and got her just days before the hunt to get her and him familiar. He cleaned his kennel and put new cedar shaving in her box. After three days she was covered in big bumps and was in bad shape. Didn't get to hunt her. Took bath and benadril to get her straight.
Another friend had them in his dog box and I followed him down a rough woods road. When he hit a bump I could see dust come out his vents and his dog got out sneezing and blowing. Told him to clean out his box and that took care of things. For bedding I only use second cutting grass hay sprinkled with sevin for mites. No problems and dogs love them.

Iíll agree that most wonít hunt one hard enough to need performance based supplements. Supplements like being discussed for joint health is different. Just like you donít do good or feel like doing much with aches joints. Your not going to get the best and maintain the best with bad joint health.

Dang thatís not good hopefully she was good after that. Our one pup has issues with cedar chips also and we found out thatís what it was because we had him in the house and at night we would put him in a pet porter so he would get in to stuff well I gave him a bath and the next morning he had beat red chest and his belly and everything was red . So we got different puppy soap because we thought it was that but it ended up being the cedar chips so we are using pine for them for right now but have been noticing that all three pups are dusty and smell bad. So now I am looking for something different that wonít cause dust and our one pup will be okay with.

Dog food doesnít have enough stuff in it for it to be beneficial. Itís not hurting but itís not an amount to be beneficial.

I use wheat straw in the winter no bedding in the summer except the dog box mats that are in there year around. I get new mats for the truck once a year and use the old ones in their houses. It does make a big difference especially for old dogs joints but even keeps the young ones from getting hair worn areas on elbows and shoulders where they lay. If your dogs are kept on flea and tick pills for preventative you will never have an issue with fleas and need anything but bedding for comfort and warmth in the winter - no chips or shavings of any kind.
