    Default Question about NuVet plus and Fromms

    When I first got Rocko from the breeder he was on Iams proactive adult mini chunk and the breeder gave me NuVet plus and NuJoint plus since an adult food wouldnt have everything in it to support his puppy needs. Well since lurking these forums I've switched Rocko to Fromms a month ago but now I'm wondering if I should stop giving him the NuVet with him being on Fromms. I've heard not to give any extra calcium to bullies and the NuVet has 100mg in it along with lots of other things. I can see the NuJoint plus being useful but should I get rid of the NuVet?

    What I do is give NuVet supplement every 3 days or so. Just not everyday. It is good to make sure they are getting all the nutrients they need, but yes you dont want to overdose either. NuVet also has some herbal supplements that you won't find in kibble, which is why I still like to give them one twice a week.

    But nutritionally, with Fromm, fresh veggies/fruits as treats, you are doing great in the nutrition dept. Your dog probably eats healthier then you do! (Heck I know MINE DO!!!)
    Hope that helps!

    Thank you desertsky for the quick response I think I'll stick to the once every 3 days then, and you're right he eats a lot healthier than me lol I think the majority of Bullies on here eat healthier than their owners haha but thats a good thing our bodies can take the abuse a lot better than theirs

    I know NV Instict is all life, Fromm 4* is all life, not sure about the prairie formula for NV, but the other Fromm formula has a puppy formula you can give.

    Right on. I wish I was as strict with my own diet as my bullies! If only I couldn't reach in my cupboards!
