Our customer asked:

I'm wondering if Seraquin or Synoquin is ok to give my female dog which is still feeding puppies.
And at what age is Seraquin or Synoquin ok to give pups?

Our reply:

Either of these products is safe to give to your bitch, and to the puppies. They are recommended from 3 months of age for young dogs. The Synoquin Growth is probably the ideal product for the pups. It is likely to be more beneficial to large breed dogs, or puppies which are very active or overweight. These are the individuals which are likely to put the most strain on their developing joints. The average small breed dog is less likely to benefit from this sort of supplementation until it is older, unless it has a joint injury or developmental joint problem.
