3 Nutritional Supplements For All Stages of Your Dog's Life

Feeding your dog good quality food along with ample opportunity for socialization and exercise is the basis for good health. Adding supplements to their daily meals can help ensure optimal health at each stage of their life and protect against health issues that could arise along the way. From puppyhood through their senior years, here are 3 wonderful types of supplements that can help keep your dog happy and healthy:

Daily Vitamin

Some dogs are better eaters than others. This can mean your dog is choosy about what they eat and eat too little or they eat anything and everything they can resulting in filling up on "doggy junk food". Either way they may not be getting all the nutrition they should. Supplementing your dog's diet with a good quality daily vitamin can help. Be sure the daily vitamin you choose is filled with natural ingredients and does not contain artificial colors, flavors, or chemical additives.

Supplement The Health of Their Skin and Coat

Outside elements like sun, wind, and cold can be very damaging to your dogs skin and coat. The result will be flaky, irritated skin and rough, dull coat. Supplements that contain Omega-3 Fatty Acids, and Vitamins C and E will help to keep your pup looking and feeling great. Fish Oil supplements are a wonderful source of nutrients and besides being great for the skin and coat it also helps to maintain a healthy immune system and overall health.

Joint Formula

As your dog ages joint issues may arise. Vitamin formulas rich in Glucosamine can aid in the maintenance of healthy bones and joints. Keeping your dog's joints healthy will help ensure that they can live an active life free of joint pain and stiffness.

  1. We don't give our pups or cats supplements now, but when I had an older dog, we gave him glucosamine and it seemed to help.
