Vet recommended dog vitamins
When purchasing vitamins and supplements for your dog, it’s important to ask the right questions regarding safety, efficacy, and ingredient quality.
Finding out if your product of choice is recommended by experts, such as veterinarians and canine nutritionists, is an excellent way to help you make your decision.
As discussed in our raw dog food for beginner’s guide, dogs require a broad spectrum of vitamins and minerals to keep their health balanced .
- Vitamin B is critical for healthy red blood cells, metabolism, brain health, and skin condition
- Vitamin C is essential for healthy immune function, antioxidant support, and healthy ageing
- Vitamins A, D, E, and K are also of great importance for various areas of canine health.
- Minerals such as zinc, copper, calcium, magnesium, and phosphorus are crucial to the overall health of dogs
- Fatty acids such as Omega-3s and Omega-6s (providing these are balanced properly).
Thankfully, a species-appropriate, raw food diet offers the majority of essential vitamins and minerals that dogs need.
That is provided it’s balanced and offers plenty of variety for maximum nutrient absorption; such as our complete raw dog food.
Vets that approve raw feeding will often stress this point with their patients, offering ideas for raw food combinations to best suit the unique nutritional needs of each dog.
However, they may also suggest vitamin and mineral supplements like ProDog’s Boost to help dogs achieve a more complete nutritional profile.
