myself and family have rescued an 18 week old female ameican akita from awful circumstances, we intend to train/socialise/ love and care for her, and get some weight on her, before looking for a forever home, we have dogs, staffies and a Russian black terrier, so between us we are experienced, what supplements would members recommend? I have read about green lipped mussel and crontonin ?

I'm so glad you've given a little akita pup a caring home, have you named the pup? Personally I've never given a pup suppliments, I always thought that all their requirments were in the food I gave them But I give my adult girl Asia an egg and 3 large teaspoons of yogart every day, eggs good for the coat and protien for bones and stuff and the yogart (live) is good for tummy and digestion, I think it would be okay for a pup but it would be worth checking with the vet first

Any piccy's of pup

Hi Marie
Thank you for taking this poor girl in, she sounds as though she may have had a lot of problems had you not done so. As bensonsmum says, as long as you are feeding her a good quality puppy food, then most things should be in that food. We have fostered quite a few pups now. We feed them to start with Arden Grange large breed puppy food, supplemented with either chicken, yoghurt, grated cheese, or fish. We have found they do really well on this, are always a good weight and are well balanced. Later on we do give glucosamine and condroitin supplements, once we switch them not the adult version.
When the time comes to rehome her, I hope you will come to us, we will gladly help find her a home where the new owners have Akita experience, and can carry on with the good work you are already doing with her.
Can we have some pics please to coo over?
