 What did they give her? Glucosimine or something like rymadil?  Glucosimine (cosaquin) won't hurt her it is actually good for her if she is an active dog but I would tell them to stop if it is the other.

If it's rymadil tell them to stop giving it to your young pup. I would tell them to give her a dog treat instead of meds.

when my dog was old she took cosequin but i wouldnt want to just give to every random dog that comes into the house, that just seems weird.

 Getting it once more then likely won't but there are some arthritis meds that can cause damage to the organs in some dogs.  I would not have been happy if someone had done that with my dogs either.

Rymadil can cause damage to a dogs organs. It's only for elderly dogs

that is so stupid. Like the dog would really feel left out?!
Your family sounds crazy- between the post about your sis yesterday and this-- I am so sorry for you. I bet you are so ready to go back to your own home LOL

 Actually, it is not just for elderly dogs. Dogs of any age that have been injured or have had certain types of surgeries use it but that is also short term use.
