Okay so I am trying to find a bone & joint support supplement, but I also want one that can support a lot of other areas of the dogs health.

I found this during a google search, http://www.petsmart.com/product/index.jsp?productId=4296507. Seems okay I guess.

I was also recommended NuPro joint supplement

Anyone currently using any products they can recommend? Thanks.

What food are you feeding? a good foundation nutrition in your everyday feed is the first step.

She gets TOTW. She just recently went for a checkup and I mentioned to the Vet that she sometimes limps after laying down. The vet recommended a hip and joint supplement, as her range of motion was good and she usually doesnt have difficulty walking or jumping.

I would suggest, rather that a catch-all supplement, targeting your funds on 2 items to start.

Salmon (or a fish body oil)
a joint supplement. Everyone has different ones that they like. I use Glyco-flex for all of my dogs.

welcome!

See how she does on those for a couple of months before adding anything else. Hopefully, both of those will have her feeling better.

If you are giving fish oil it is also important to give vit E along with it, as long term fish oil can deplete vit E in the body. You can just give a vit E supplement or add a little wheat germ oil.

There was some discussion and links in this thread:
