Dog Vitamin Guide

Dog Vitamin Guide

In addition to your dog’s nutritious daily food, your furry friend may require vitamin supplements if they are missing the essential amount that is necessary for healthy growth, reproduction, and maintenance.
These essential vitamins and mineral ingredients are already in their food, but some dogs may require different amounts.
Your veterinarian may determine that your pup is missing out on these ingredients by evaluating their health or behavioral issues and their specific diet.
Always consult with your vet before giving any vitamins to your dog.
It is important to monitor the amount of vitamins your dog is getting daily as a large dosage amount can cause toxicity and a low dosage amount can cause a loss in weight, hair, and difficulty with digestion.
