Giving the Dog Food as well as Supplements
Dogs need vitamins and minerals in order to stay strong. This is the reason that scientists have invested a lot of money in research for proper nutrition as the owner does the same by buying this from the supermarket.
Though some think that giving the dog vaccination is enough, there are other things that are needed to make the hair grow and for the bones of the animal to be strong. These supplements come in different forms.
The person can buy this in groceries, the pet shops or in specialty stores that are either in powder or tablet form. Should the dog refuse to take this orally, the owner can mix this instead with the food. Most of the tablets are good for a month before a new bottle is bought.
Humans drink milk or take Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid. There is also a similar formula for dogs that are available in 60 to 180 tablets per bottle. This should also be given once a day and cost more than the multivitamin which is purchased at the store.
Aside from tablet or powder, some supplements are also available in liquid form. Since the dog may experience flaking, itching or shedding in a certain area, the person can apply this by hand or inject this in.
Can supplements given to one breed of dog be used on another? The answer is yes but this should be first consulted with the veterinarian to get the desired results.
What are the other uses of supplements? This can also be used to help the dog deal with aging, poor oxygen availability, stress and a weakened immune system.
When the dog experiences an injury such as a dislocation or a fracture, the person can also give the animal some supplements to relieve the pain. This can be rubbed and used to treat joint stiffness, osteoarthritis, pains and inflammations.
There are two kinds of supplements that are now out in the market. The most often used are made of artificial ingredients. This is also what humans use to give the person that much needed energy at work.
Lately, people have discovered a new supplement which is made of natural ingredients. These are often from the east which can be given the same way as conventional medicine.
Some of these ingredients are herbs, seeds, wild yam, corn silk and cat’s claw. This can be used to clean the urinary tract or bowel system, help with aging or keep the immune system strong against diseases.
The price range of the two isn’t that far and some even use a combination of both to give the dog the much needed vitamins and nutrients to stay active and strong.
Studies have shown there is nothing harmful in giving supplements to the dog. The person should just stick with the proper dosage since an overdose may cause the animal to have a chemical imbalance inside which could be bad news.
Supplements are there to add a special boost in the dog’s system. These were also designed to produce certain things that the animal doesn’t produce enough of. Some people say the giving the pet the right food is enough.
This is not something breeders will not agree since these people will use everything possible for the dog to win in competitions and produce good offspring.
Caring for and Training a Dog is a great activity to pursue at almost any age provided you are in proper health to handle the rigors of being on the run all day with your dog!
Sometimes, the demands of modern life seem to require an endless supply of energy. It’s hard enough just trying to squeeze everything in, then finding the energy to actually do everything presents a whole other obstacle. Are *YOU* low on natural energy?

When it comes to maintaining your good health, even when we try to eat well, we're still disadvantaged…
The nutritional content of most food has been compromised over the years, not only by deficient soils and modern production, transportation, storage and processing methods, but also by the enormous amounts of chemical and artificial substances added to promote growth, storage life, taste and appearance.
It's for this reason that more and more medical authorities are advocating the use of vitamin and mineral supplements. However, finding them in the right combination can be both confusing and costly.
The best nutrition products I know of make use of knowledge gained from the botanical world's 6,000 year history.
