Dietary supplements for animals

Dietary supplements for animals

The quality and life expectancy of people and animals is largely determined by a balanced diet. There are many commercial dog and cat foods on the market, which should theoretically contain all ingredients necessary for proper functioning, including minerals and vitamins. Unfortunately, some of them may not be absorbed by the body at all.

Many owners of four-legged pets choose a different form of feeding their pets, namely preparing meals at home. In this case, we are not able to completely balance the diet so as to include everything that is necessary for optimal functioning of the body. In such a case, dietary supplements should be used. This is because the storage, slicing and cooking of meat and vegetables causes the loss of many important vitamins and minerals.

There are many dietary supplements for the appropriate age groups, from puppies to seniors. Such preparations include Flawitol by Dr Seidel for puppies, and Flawitol for adult dogs and seniors.

If your pet has a problem with coat, you can use supplements containing zinc, biotin, vitamin A and E, e. g. “Flawitol for healthy skin and shiny coat,” “Flawitol Omega Complex for healthy skin and beautiful hair,” rich in omega-3 and -6 acids. It is important to supplement with omega-3 acids present in fish oils. The product containing pure fish oil is “Flawitol Omega Super Smak. for tasty food.”

As for cats, it is very important to use taurine preparations. Dietary supplements prove to be useful in the treatment of diseases such as osteoarthritis. Such preparations contain chondroitin, glucosamine and boswellia which stimulate the production of collagen and other cartilage components, inhibit the activity of enzymes that cause articular cartilage degradation, reduce pain and have anti-inflammatory effects. One of such products is Flawitol Artro, which additionally contains devil’s claw. As in everything, moderation is important. Use dietary supplements cautiously and only if necessary. If you have any doubts, consult your vet.
