Question Advice on giving new joint supplements

My 1 year old dog has issues with her back knees (the vet thinks it might be her ACL). I bought a few new supplements and I am not sure if I should stagger introducing them.

I have been giving her:
Missing Link Joint Formula
https://www.chewy.com/dp/41597

What I just got:

Salmon Oil
https://www.chewy.com/dp/137145
^ gave her a couple tsp tonight - she loves it

Cosequin
https://www.chewy.com/dp/36601
^ gave her one tonight

Green Lipped Mussel
https://www.chewy.com/dp/130969

NaturVet S.O.D & Boswellia Tablets
https://www.chewy.com/dp/105724
^ this stuff stinks!

-------------

Should I wait a few days before introducing the other two?

I hope someone replies soon for you.

I would read up on Cosequin. That might be the only one that some people might advise you to reconsider?

I'm currently looking up Glucosamine, Chondroitin and MSM liquid supplements.

I started her on everything the next day - and no upset stomach like I feared.

She's 25 lbs so right now I have her on 2tsp of Salmon oil & a scoop of mussel at night, 1 tablet of the S.O.D & Boswellia and 1/2 a tablet of the Cosequin in the morning and at night...And she seems a little more bouncy lately.

@BenP, did you hear something bad about the Cosequin? I haven't stumbled on anything in my readings.

Cosequin made a huge difference in my last dog. He went from randomly yelping and much less active to leaping and running happily like a young dog and dragging me around everywhere and playing again. I might have had him on fish oil too.

It looks like it might be okay?:
