dog supplements

Hi All,

Not sure if this has been covered in other threads, didn't see any with a quick browse.

Wife and I are looking to order some supplements for our dogs online, specifically cosequin double strength, some salmon oil for her leg joint problems and some toothpaste, we heard virbac is good. After searching online, we see that amazon, us, fr, nor de will post them to switzerland

Does anyone know of any pet supplement websites in switzerland or shops in zurich, as it seems that these things can't be posted to switzerland. We tried zooplus but with none of the above friend recommended brands.

Appreciate any similar exp. or info.

Dong

Re: dog supplements

Salmon oil is available from just about any petstore: Meiko, Fressnaf, Qualipet and the independents. Meiko is available on-line, btw:
http://www.meiko.ch/

Virbac products are usually available from your vet - if this is the toothpaste you want, best to ask him/her.

The above stores all carry other brands of toothpaste, though, as does Zooplus. To be honest - I've found that the brand of toothpaste makes little difference; it's the daily brushing that does the trick.

Joint supplements are another matter. I've not found one I like in Switzerland, so I order from Foster and Smith in the US. This would cost a fortune to ship to CH, though - so I wait until I am back in the US and stock up. In CH/DE you can get Gani-Gel, Luposan, and Canina - but these are generally green lip mussel extract based.

Hope you find what you need...

Re: dog supplements

I order almost all my supplements from iherb.com, including chondroidin/glucosamin.

They ship for almost free ($6) to Switzerland. They are fast and reliable and real life saver for me - I order mostly supplements for my cats!

If you do so, please use my reward code HIW007, and you will get $5 or $10 off your first order.

Re: dog supplements

Thank you both for your replies, we have bought some salmon oil from the local fressnap, the McPet brand salmon oil, it looks a bit runny but smells a lot more plesant than I imagined, the dog likes it very much.

We are still looking for a way to get some supplements as articles on the internet left and right say different brands of glucosamin/chondron.. can have different manufacturing techniques thus very different amounts of effectiveness, we have only been recommended Cosequin by friends with dogs that have the similiar problems, not sure if anyone can recommend other types of joint supplements for dogs that are known to work effectiveless.
