Spring is almost upon us! Oof. Congratulations on surviving 2020 so far! As is only proper at this time of year many of us have health on the mind. We’re dusting off of our bikes to ride them to work, researching if strawberries are Keto, and using our Sundays to meal prep. A lot of what constitutes being healthy is making informed decisions on what we put into our bodies. The case is the same with dogs. Your dog, the light of your life, your favorite cuddle pal, also has nutritional requirements. Most of us know that our dogs need protein, fats, and carbs to maintain a healthy lifestyle, but what vitamins should I be giving my dog? Here we will break down exactly what vitamins and nutrient your dog needs to feel balanced. Plus, we'll also define what food sources to find those nutrients.
This is actually not a single vitamin but rather a group of vitamins including B6, B12, and Riboflavin, among others. These vitamins play many important roles in your dog’s health. Here are some of the highlights: regulating the metabolism, ensuring healthy red blood cell function, and keeping up an active immune response.
Food sources: Liver, beans, nutritional brewers yeast, whole grains, green vegetables, spirulina, nuts, and dairy.
Ahh vitamin D. The oh-so-critical happiness vitamin humans absorb on sunny days. Unfortunately, our dogs cannot absorb adequate amounts through sun exposure alone and must get this nutrient from their diet. Your puppers use this vitamin to grow and maintain healthy bones and muscle tissue.
Food sources: Fish oil, egg yolks, liver, beef
Giving your dog a daily multivitamin like theHangry Woof Multivitamins Chews helps ensure your dog is getting the nutrients they’re missing from their diet. Especially if your dog is a picky eater. Preventive care is the best care and vitamins play an important role in your dog’s overall health. Starting your dog on a full spectrum multivitamin gives their body the "resources" it needs to: - Build strong hip & joints - Develop soft, silky skin & coat - Maintain energy & immunity for overall healthy aging -Support a healthy heart & digestion When choosing which multivitamins you should give your dog, always look at the ingredients, where it's made and if they're vet-formulated.
For example, Hangry Woof Multivitamins are made of all-natural ingredients in the USA and are nutritionally balanced by veterinarians. Consult with your veterinarian to see what your dog needs and come up with the best plan of care. They’ll know what might be missing from your dog’s diet and can provide guidance on the best plan to support their short-term and long-term health goals.
