I've seen many people mention sprinkling Knox Gelatin in their puppy's food, but never do they say how much.  Does it really help and how much do you use?

I've never used that. Typically with a good dog food and proper nutrition and posting they should be fine. We were recommended supplements from out vet but I wouldn't recommend anything with out vet consent first. Our surgeon is one of the best so I truly trust his judgement. Our boy has a long show and he will be done posting in a month or so he's still teething if he wasn't I would test his ears for a day, but till then we don't let his ear out for more then an hour.

Are they having problems standing ? What crop did you get ? And what food are you feeding ?

Show crop and Wellness Core, I'm not concerned about them standing. A lot of people have mentioned using gelatin.

If you aren't concerned about them standing I wouldn't worry about using gelatin. I think that sort of sounds gross since its animal bones ground up. If you want I could give you the names of the supplements I use. But sounds like the food is good and if they aren't having issues you should be fine. I personally wouldn't put gelatin on my pups food cuz I don't want to over due the calcium at this young of an age.
