5 ways healthy supplements help your dog

Whether they're a puppy or a wise senior dog, healthy dog supplements can be crucial for strong bones, healthy guts, and an overall happy pooch.

We have become well accustomed to taking vitamins and minerals as humans - stocking up on vitamin D when we are not feeling well or popping a multivitamin with breakfast to support our immune system - so why not do the same for our dogs with healthy dog supplements? Every pet owner wants their furry friend to be as healthy as possible, so they can jump into adventures and live a long, tail-wagging life. 

We know seeing your best friends struggling with their health can be extremely worrisome. There is a lot of information online that can often be confusing. It’s why we’ve kept things simple with our healthy supplements. They’ve been scientifically developed to provide all of the nutrients, vitamins and organic ingredients to target specific challenges we know dogs tend to face in their lives. But, if you're in any doubt, speak to your local vet and they’ll guide you through potential supplements that can help!

There is not a ‘one-size-fits-all’ dog supplement. You can, however, narrow down your search and opt for a supplement befitting the breed, age and size of your beloved pet. Here are 5 ways healthy supplements can help your dog:

  4. Increase absorption rates: While many dog foods are designed to provide the building blocks of a nutrient-rich diet, most don’t provide everything, that’s where our supplements come in, to assist in the absorption of essential nutrients.

  5. Support for senior dogs: Healthy supplements are great for dogs in their later, more distinguished years.
