Have you ever wondered if your dog needs a vitamin supplement? If your dog shows signs of lethargy due to sickness or aging, adding a supplement to his or her diet can help improve overall well-being. Many commercial dog foods lack important nutrients, so a vitamin supplement can help provide the necessary minerals and antioxidants to support your dog's brain, heart, kidneys, eye, and liver functions. Always speak with your veterinarian first to determine whether or not your dog needs a multivitamin. Giving your dog a supplement can help in the following ways:
If your dog is not as active as he or she used to be, try a giving a multivitamin such as 1-800-PetMeds Super VitaChews or 1-800-PetMeds Super VitaChews Soft Chews. These tasty, flavored supplements are loaded with minerals and antioxidants. They are also safe, sugar-free, and contain no preservatives.
Has your dog's coat lost its shine? Is he or she shedding too much? Giving your dog an Omega 3 supplement such as 1-800-PetMeds Super Pure Omega 3 or a biotin supplement like Brewers Yeast can improve skin and coat health, thereby reducing shedding.
If it is determined that your dog's immune system is compromised, your veterinarian may recommend one of the following products: Proanthozone, which not only helps boost the immune system, but can also aid liver and kidney function, or Vetri-DMG, which also benefits the immune system while helping your dog fight off disease or chronic illness.
