Feed supplement & vitamins for dogs
Vitamins for dogs – feed supplements for your animal’s health
Alongside sufficient exercise, a balanced diet is important for a long and healthy life for your dog. If you feed your pet with ready-made wet or dry food, it will have the essential nutrients for dogs. However, your dog’s individual vitamin and mineral requirements may be higher. This applies in particular to puppies, sick dogs and older animals. Females also need a higher-quality feed during and after pregnancy. Vitamin requirements may also be increased after surgery and recovery from illnesses. The administration of additional vitamins in the form of feed supplements is indispensable if you BARF feed your dog or prepare its feed yourself.
Which vitamins are particularly important for dogs?
Vitamins support your dog’s metabolism, strengthen its immune system and help with shedding. Vitamin A strengthens your dog’s vision and immune defences, supports its metabolism and the skin’s normal development. Your dog needs calcium for healthy bone production. Vitamin D facilitates absorption of this mineral. Vitamin K helps with blood clotting and can be especially important for females. Is your dog often nervous and reacts to every noise? Then you can strengthen its nervous system with vitamin B1. Vitamin B2 is used to support fat and protein metabolism. Vitamin B6 is another supplement that is particularly helpful for females following the heat cycle because it contributes to blood formation. Your dog needs vitamin H for healthy fur and healthy skin. Vitamins are partially fat and partially water-soluble. Particularly with fat-soluble ingredients, vitamins should be offered together with fatty foods such as meat or sausage.
In what form are vitamins available for dogs?
Your dog receives vitamins in their pure form with fresh food. If you feed your dog raw or cooked meat, the food should be varied and contain liver, fish and muscle. Egg, spinach and carrots are other foods that provide your dog with important nutrients. Therefore, you should occasionally enrich fresh dog food with egg and regularly with vegetables. If you would like the vitamins to be added to dog food, feed supplements in the form of pastes, oils and powders are available, which you can simply mix in with the food. Dry vegetables and vegetable flakes are tasty and contain vitamins. You will receive this as a vegetable mix with carrots, courgettes, pasta and many other ingredients, or as individual vegetables in the form of carrot or beetroot chips.
