You love your pet, so you take good care of him. We are the same way- we adore our cats and dogs, so we strive to provide the best care possible.
You make sure he goes in to get his annual checkup on time. All his shots, his heartworm preventative, the chewable to avoid fleas and ticks, all done. Any follow-up tests, medications, specialty visits, all made a priority.
He gets the best quality food possible. You stand in the aisle at the pet store, poring over the ingredients list, wondering what in the world yucca and green tea extract do for your dog’s health. You buy the one the cashier suggested, and when your dog hates it, you choose another.
You treat him to a gentle brushing every day and take him to the groomer before his nails get too long. He even has his own paw pad ointment that smells like rosemary.
Your yard and home are set up to be the perfect environment. Your dog has a fenced-in hard to run around in, lots of toys and bones to chew, and his own soft memory-foam bed right next to your own.
You have probably come across some multivitamins for dogs, but there is so much controversy surrounding vitamin supplements for humans that it is hard to cut through the information to find the truth.
You likely have some questions. How do you know that multivitamins for dogs are effective enough to spend the money on? Are they going to help his long-term health? Is there any risk they could hurt him?
We spent years developing a full line of only the very best products for your dog, and we have a well-earned reputation for quality and service. We work hard to present items made with only the purest ingredients.
We recently introduced a new multivitamin that may eliminate all your concerns and improve your dog’s health immensely!
What Are Our Advanced Multivitamin Chews?
Multivitamins definitely have a place in your dog’s everyday health care routine. They minimize the risk of missing out on essential nutrients and fill in any gaps.
Most vitamins and minerals do not perform well in isolation; they all require each other to balance your dog’s body. While a specific single-ingredient supplement may have a place (vitamin D is one often recommended), they cannot compete with a high-quality multivitamin.
They can help heal his body after injury or physical stress, prevent him from getting sick or developing infections, and make sure his body can convert the food he eats into energy he can use.
Solid nutrition, stemming from a well-rounded varied diet, is the key to longevity and good health.
Nutrition And Overall Health
It is important to note that using a multivitamin is NOT a quick fix for a poor diet. Nutrition should absolutely come from food wherever possible.
To feed your dog properly, start with a solid high-quality dry kibble. From there, add in some canned dog food and human snacks. Good options to explore with your puppy include freshly cooked meats, eggs, most fruits and vegetables, small amounts of dairy, and healthy fats like coconut oil.
- Chicken, beef, bison, and wild-caught salmon
- Cottage cheese
- Unflavored, unsweetened Greek yogurt
- Cooked plain whole-grain oatmeal
- Steamed brown or white rice
- Berries (blueberries and cranberries are the lowest in sugar and the highest in antioxidants)
- Carrots, green beans, broccoli, and peas
- Sweet potatoes
- Leafy green vegetables
- Peanut butter (choose unsweetened options)
It is absolutely essential that you do not overfeed your pet. Obesity is a widespread problem often compounded by the development of serious chronic health conditions like diabetes and hypertension. Some of these could cause a major decline in your dog’s quality of life and others could prove deadly.
Advanced Multivitamin soft chews are low in calories but super high in nutrients. There is no need to decrease the amount of food your dog is taking in.
In addition to food and vitamins, make sure he has constant access to clean, cold water. Refresh it as often as needed to make sure there is no hair or dirt in it.
Exercise is the other side of the coin. Your dog should have plenty of room to run and regular daily opportunities to do so. If your pet needs more exercise, try running with him, hiking a popular trail, playing frisbee on the beach, and swimming. If you are enjoying your activity, your dog will too.
If you have any questions about how to feed or exercise your pet, please contact your veterinarian. He can guide you in your decision making.
Why Are These Multivitamins The Right Ones For My Dog?
Our Advanced Multivitamin Chews are the highest quality product with the purest ingredients possible.
Our chews contain so many good things for your dog’s health, they are a natural choice for any loving, responsible pet owner. They provide a balanced, well-researched, science-backed nutrition insurance policy that will equally please you and your dog!
Brewers yeast, a powder derived from a single-celled organism used in brewing beer, is our first ingredient.
It is chock-full of a range of B vitamins, which serve a number of vital functions in your dog’s body including:
- Maintain the physical integrity of his nervous system and brain
- Minimize his anxiety
- Promote the production of red blood cells
- Regulates his hormones and metabolism
- Facilitate enzyme production and function
- Helps the body synthesize mitochondrial proteins and amino acids
Brewers yeast is also high in several minerals like magnesium, zinc, selenium, and chromium. It is also a great source of iron.
It is important to note that Brewers yeast does NOT contain any B12. B12 is only available through the consumption of animal products, and, unless your dog is on a vegan diet, he should have no trouble reaching his daily recommended intake of B12.
Brewers yeast may also help protect your dog against developing diabetes. It contains high (but safe) levels of chromium, which in humans has been shown to help regulate blood sugar and insulin production. More stosesudies are needed to determine if the same applies to animals.
It also has a long history of being used as a flea and tick deterrent. It will likely have the strongest effect when combined with tiny bits of garlic.
It is a natural prebiotic and contains small doses of natural digestive enzymes.
Pumpkin is an absolutely amazing source of fiber, with just a teaspoon offering about a gram of fiber. It helps encourage healthy bowel function and regularity. It may also fight internal parasites like tapeworms.
Pumpkin is a good way to support your dog’s kidney and urinary tract health. The anti-inflammatory compounds in pumpkin flesh can help dislodge kidney stones and prevent age- or disease-related bladder incontinence.
Also a solid source of vitamin C, vitamin A, magnesium, and potassium, pumpkin is not just great for your latte in the fall- it is also a superfood for your pooch!
Glucosamine is a chondroprotective agent, a compound used to alleviate the pain and inflammation associated with arthritis. It is used for both animals and humans and is often suggested because it is safe and easily obtained over the counter.
If your dog has recently had surgery on his spine or joints, your veterinarian likely recommended glucosamine. It shortens the recovery time and eases the stiffness and discomfort in the healing joints.
Many dog breeds are exceptionally prone to hip dysplasia. Hip dysplasia is when the hip ball and socket do not match up properly, resulting in abnormal wear and tear on each. Eventually, your dog will lose mobility in the hips altogether. It presents with excruciating pain and inability to move.
Glucosamine is your best bet at staving off hip dysplasia before it develops, as well as alleviating the symptoms once it begins.
It can encourage the regrowth of the damaged cartilage in the arthritic joint, reforming the soft, spongy layer between the bones that cushions them as they rub against each other while he moves.
Lecithin is a type of naturally-occurring phospholipid (a fat molecule containing phosphorus, a component in cell membranes) that is found in egg yolks, sunflowers, and soy. The most potent of these is lecithin from sunflowers, which is the type used in our Advanced Multivitamin Chews.
Lecithin is essential to the way your dog’s brain functions. Approximately a third of his brain is made from lecithin!
The primary ingredient in lecithin is choline, which is shown to:
- Support the structural integrity of each and every cell in the body
- Improve the conduction of neurotransmitters (messengers between neurons and cells in the rest of the body)
- Eliminates the risk of toxic cholesterol buildup in the liver
- Regulates involuntary muscle contractions, like those that make the heart and intestine function properly
- Help the cells synthesize new strands of DNA
In recent studies, it was discovered that around 75 percent of household pets are taking in insufficient amounts of choline. Since the body is not capable of making enough to avoid health problems, it is better to make sure your dog is getting enough choline from his diet.
Sunflower lecithin can help!
Hemp Seed Powder, Hemp Extract, And Hemp Seed Oil
Cannabis sativa is a cousin of the marijuana that humans use to induce a high but contains only trace amounts of THC (the psychoactive compound in weed).
Instead, the seeds are a fantastic powerhouse nutritional supplement!
They contain protein (over six grams per two tablespoons) and fat (nearly 10 grams of high-quality healthy fats!).
They also provide a generous portion of the major vitamins (A, B, C, and E to be precise) and a significant amount of many trace nutrients including:
Hemp is also a great source of fiber, which, in conjunction with the pumpkin, can help keep your dog’s bowel movements healthy and avoid constipation and diarrhea.
Fiber acts as a broom and sweeps out the toxins. It also helps maintain a healthy weight and body fat percentage, can halt the progression of diabetes, and promotes overall gut health by feeding the probiotic microorganisms living there.
Krill are tiny ocean-dwelling crustaceans related to shrimp and crabs. They are the main food source for blue whales, as well as part of the natural diet for salmon, rockfish, sardines, and squid. Krill migrates vertically every day, looming near the surface at night and moving to deeper water during the day.
Krill’s main food is phytoplankton, which are microscopic single-celled plants that live near the surface of the ocean. Because they are at the bottom of the food chain, and because of their limited diet, they are virtually free from toxins and heavy metals often found in larger fish.
Krill oil, by extension, is significantly less contaminated than fish oil.
It is an excellent source of omega-3 fatty acids, which have been proven to:
- Improve skin and hair health, which means a better-looking healthier coat for your dog
- Support cardiovascular health, reducing the risk of high blood pressure and heart attack
- Positively influence your dog’s immune system, enabling it to better fight infection and illness
- Balance cholesterol
- Make it easier for your cells to divide properly
- Fight widespread inflammation in the body
- Ease joint pain and improve arthritis and dysplasia
- Support eye health (especially important if your dog is of a breed prone to eye conditions like cataracts or glaucoma)
- Improved response to external stressors (which makes for a less anxious pet!)
As an added benefit to krill oil, it is a potent antioxidant, giving it the ability to fight free radicals in your dog’s body. Free radicals are unattached electrons that zoom through the body, destroying cells and tissues and rapidly aging the body and inviting disease and disorder.
Krill oil is unique in that the fatty acids it contains are bound by phospholipids, which, because they form much of the cell membrane, easily pass through it. Krill oil is more easily and more thoroughly absorbed than other types of omega-3 fatty acids.
Most commercial krill is caught in the Southern Ocean near Antarctica and is considered highly sustainable at current numbers. Because of the lack of pollution in those waters, the krill is the purest quality available.
Probiotics are all the rage in natural health circles, but many people do not understand what they are and what they do.
So why are these so-called “good bacteria” such a good thing?
Probiotics are incredibly important to your dog’s health. They are tiny microorganisms (yeasts and bacteria) that live in his gut.
Among other things, they can:
- Improve his gut health and digestion, reducing the instances of diarrhea, vomiting, bloating, and painful trapped gas
- Increase the rate of nutrient absorption
- Reduce his risk of developing certain chronic health conditions
- Boost his immune system
- Help eliminate problems sleeping and resting
- Improve mental health, reducing anxiety and depression
- Improve his skin and coat health, eliminating conditions like eczema and chronic skin infections
Probiotics are not to be confused with prebiotics, which are the food sources for the probiotic organisms. Prebiotics are carbohydrates that ferment in the digestive tract and feed the yeasts and bacteria.
