Jean writes to us:
Hello, I have a 5 month old purebred Amstaff and we've been taking vitabully for over a month now. We got her from the pound and she was the runt of the litter and is very small compared to her littermates (about 50% smaller), so I was looking for supplements that could help her get the nutrients she needs grow to her full potential, whatever that may be.
She does well on the Vitabully, but I noticed you now have Puppy Platinum as well. I was wondering if it would be good to give her both Vitabully and Puppy Platinum and if that was safe? Or should I continue with Vitabully or switch to Puppy Platinum?
My overall goal is just to provide what's healthiest for her and what can help her grow at 5 months of age. Thanks and looking forward to hearing from you!

My name is Rita and I am one of the coaches here at Muscle Bully! You have a great foundation going for your puppy! You can definitely add the Puppy Platinum to your puppy's diet and continue the Vitabully. Also look at the Muscle Bully Gains and the Muscle Bully Muscle Building Supplement. I think those would make great additions to your current nutrition plan! Muscle Bully Gains - Given every day, this will give your dog healthy fats to support gain of functional muscle and as your dog is still young, support healthy body function. Added fats are needed especially in young fit dogs so they don't burn their proteins during exercise.
They need the proteins to build muscle. Muscle Bully Muscle Building Supplement- Given before and after exercise, this supports muscle recovery. Muscles are broken down during exercise, the rebuilding and recovery process is very important as muscle is actually built during this time. If the muscles recover faster from exercise they will build faster and you will start to get the definition you are looking for!
This supplement contains DMG which has been studied for decades and found to not only have muscle building properties but many other health benefits! Your exercise routine sounds good. I like that you have a variety. Different exercises work different muscles groups so variety is always good! Be careful with rigorous jumping as your puppy is still very young.
A puppy's growth plates aren't completely fused until about 12 months and you don't want to cause joint issues down the road. Resistance is key to building muscle. Swimming is great to add resistance but not stress the joints. Even playing or doing laps in a kiddie pool would be great. Shallow water retrieves are good too. Any of these activities need to be done 3-5 days a week for at least 15-30 minutes. You can build on that as your puppy matures!
