Where to Start With Pet Vitamins & Supplements

Dog and cat supplements can be confusing. Watch as we show you what you need to know about dog and cat vitamins and supplements.

Hi, I’m Ryan from Bentley’s Pet Stuff. Are you looking for ways to help your pets stay healthy and active as they age? Well, just like us, our pets can often benefit from all-natural vitamins and supplements. The options can be overwhelming, so we’re here today to explain to you where to start.

When used in conjunction with a healthy grain-free diet, vitamins and supplements can be used to fill in the gaps in your pet’s diet. Consult with your vet before starting your pet on a new vitamin or supplement regimen. Too much of a certain vitamin can do more damage than good, and nobody wants that. Start by reading the ingredients in your pet’s food, and consider filling in the gaps based on your pet’s current diet.

Some common vitamins that we often recommend, based on your pet’s needs, are glucosamine, used to help treat dogs and cats that suffer from osteoarthritis, often found in aging pets. Just like us, pets can benefit from the Omega-3 fatty acids found in fish oils. These will decrease shedding and increase the softness and shininess of your pet’s coat.

Is your pet suffering from digestive issues? Probiotics or digestive enzymes may provide relief. Digestive enzymes help break down the food in your pet’s stomach, while probiotics add healthy bacteria to their gastrointestinal system.

If you find vitamins and supplements difficult, you can try certain fruits and vegetables, such as apples, blueberries, celery, carrots, cucumbers, and bananas. When given in moderation, they can supply much-needed nutrition, and help aid in digestion and disease prevention.

Our pet’s health starts with an all-natural grain-free diet, and don’t forget to check in with your vet before making any changes to your pet’s diet.

Thanks for watching, and stay tuned for more tips from us at Bentley’s, where we love your pets as much as you do.
