Dog Owners May be Shortchanging Their Companion’s Nutrition
Proper canine nutrition, this is definitely something to keep in mind as I know many dog and pet owners have switched to ‘home made’ diets in the wake of the recent dog food and pet food recalls.
“Tainted pet food.” Just the phrase sends chills down the spine of a dog owner. The reaction is understandable. However, dog owners responding to pet food scares by feeding ‘real food’ diets are encouraged to provide supplementation of vitamins and minerals.
The Plains, VA (PRWEB) July 13, 2007 — “Tainted pet food.” Just the phrase sends chills down the spine of a dog owner. The reaction is understandable. However, dog owners responding to pet food scares by feeding ‘real food’ diets are encouraged to provide supplementation of vitamins and minerals. This is most easily accomplished with an all-in-one supplement – which will provide umbrella coverage for any nutrient that may be missing in the homemade, or partially homemade, diet.
Canine supplements are easy to locate with an internet search; and all-in-ones are available. These supplements are convenient, promote everyday health, and have been proven to support dogs on any diet who are facing various physical challenges, such as:
- Skin conditions
- Hot spots
Owners may choose to look for canine supplements that have no artificial colors or flavors. Also, the most complete supplements will contain Omega-3 Fatty Acids and Amino Acids. A top-dress type supplement is put right on the dog’s dinner, negating the need for any separate dosing or extra effort.One caution, regarding all-in-ones, to owners of Bedlington Terriers: copper levels that are high enough to be effective in other breeds are toxic to this breed of dog. Read the label of the product carefully, before supplementing a Bedlington.
