Vitamins in dog food

There has been a greater focus on how important it is to feed dogs correctly , and this awareness is largely about ensuring that your dog has the best ingredients. This applies regardless of whether you choose ready-made food products for your dog, or whether you choose to cook for the dog yourself.

The best food for your dog ensures that the dog gets enough protein, fat, minerals and vitamins the dog's body needs to function optimally. It is about meeting all the dog's needs, especially if you choose to put together and make the dog's own food from scratch. Most feed mixtures contain a good amount of the necessary vitamins and minerals for dogs from the start, but if you mix the feed yourself, it is especially necessary to know which vitamins should be added.

Here, it is particularly important to choose the right vitamins to add to the dog's food, and this can be quite a task. Should you choose vitamins in pill form or in powder form? What vitamins does your old, young or pregnant dog really need? What effect do the different vitamins have? There are many questions, and there are many different feed supplements with vitamins for dogs.

When you shop at, you are guaranteed quality-tested feed and supplements, and you can therefore be sure that all brands and products are of the best quality. This ensures you and your dog have the best options for a good diet.

What kind of vitamins should you choose for your dog?

There are a multitude of different vitamins and minerals for dogs, all of which help to strengthen and control the dog's biological processes. Vitamin deficiency can be seen in the dog's nails and fur, in addition to causing a lot of health problems. Therefore, it is extremely important to ensure proper nutrition and supply of vitamins, especially if the dog has a deficiency.

This applies to Vitamin D, vitamin K for and vitamin C, which is of great importance for the dog's coat and nails as well as the immune system.

However, the dog's body only needs small amounts of vitamins to be in balance, and it is therefore important not to overfeed  – this also applies to vitamins that are shaped like treats. It is ultimately a feed supplement and not a treat.

When adding vitamins to the dog's diet, you must first consider whether you want to feed vitamins in powder form or in pill form. Vitamins as pills have the advantage that they are much easier to give, because they often come as a delicious treat with a nice scent and taste, which hides the taste of the vitamins from the dog's alert taste buds. If you have a very picky dog, vitamins as pills are therefore much easier to give than a bitter powder that is spread over the dog's food.

If you need to add vitamins to pregnant dogs or puppies, it is a good idea to give puppy formula, which contains all the vitamins that pregnant dogs and puppies need. Both pregnant and lactating dogs can benefit from the extra boost that the formula provides. Puppies that have been rejected by their mother, or that were born too thin or small, can also benefit from this type of puppy formula.

When choosing vitamins, you also have to carefully consider your dog's needs. If you have an older dog, it is a good idea to choose vitamins that help with the maintenance of joints, and if you have a younger dog, it might be better with a versatile multivitamin.

Whatever you choose, it is important to have a vitamin supplement that contains as many natural and organic ingredients as possible for your dog's well-being. In addition, it is a good idea to stay away from products that contain large amounts of grain or corn.

Vitamins can help to boost the immune system, strengthen the dog's heart function, improve skin and fur, lubricate joints and facilitate digestion. Use vitamins and also try brewer's yeast for shedding dogs for a healthy and shiny coat.
