We have realized that our dog is better than ever because we are accompanying his food with a vitamin supplement for dogs. How do you see yours? Does he have energy and pretty hair? If not, maybe you should review his diet

Do you know what vitamins dogs need? We explain what they are and how to introduce them naturally into their diet.

What vitamins do dogs need

Vitamin A

Taking vitamin A (retinol) it is essential during the growth phase of the puppy, as it contributes to cell differentiation. When a dog is older, taking vitamin A will delay its aging.

It is also very important for the eyesight of our best friends; additionally, it repairs and protects skin, hair and mucous membranes.

It has antioxidant effects, helps the immune system to prevent diseases, and plays an important role in renal and reproductive.

It is a vitamin fat soluble, which means that it dissolves in fats, such as D, E or K. Dogs store these vitamins in the liver and expel the leftovers "doing their business".

Vitamin B

Vitamin B belongs to the group of water-soluble, that is, those that dissolve in water. Taking vitamin B also strengthens the immune system of our dogs, and helps them maintain a good general state of health.

Its antioxidant properties also contribute to delay aging , just like vitamin A. In addition, it is beneficial for metabolism (helps them better absorb nutrients from food)

The importance of vitamin B in our best friends is understood when they are vomiting or diarrhea. The risk of dehydration is real, and your life will be in danger! Taking vitamin B helps restore the lost balance.

And here we are going to highlight one of this group: biotin or vitamin H which, despite its name, is also from the group B. Why do we highlight it?

Because it is one of the vitamins that most help our dogs to have great quality hair and skin. This vitamin promotes cell differentiation, just like vitamin A, and helps regenerate the outermost layers of your skin.

Vitamin C

Vitamin C is very important for our furry friends for its antioxidant properties, among its many advantages.

But do you know what vitamin C is for in dogs? Well, it helps your bodies build muscle, form blood vessels and strengthen your bones and teeth.

For example, it promotes the production of collagen, which is very important for prevent joint ailments such as arthritis or hip dysplasia. Collagen delays the degeneration of cartilage.

Vitamin D

We have to tell you that vitamin D is only beneficial for dogs if it is given in the right doses. Many cases of hypervitaminosis have been documented in dogs, and the fact is that vitamin D is toxic in excess!

Of course, when the dog ingests the right amounts of vitamin D, the first benefited will be your bones thanks to the help of calcium absorption.

In parallel, vitamin D will help our best friends in cases of intestinal inflammation, cardiovascular and even to prevent the appearance of tumors.

How to choose vitamins for your dog and introduce them in his diet

Now that you know what vitamins can be given to a dog, it is important that we clarify that some must ingest them and others produce them on their own. Let's see:

  • Vitamin A is usually found in the form of carotene, a plant pigment. When ingested, the dog's intestine transforms it and extracts the vitamin.
  • eggs, pork or poultry, fish such as sardine and cereals are examples of natural sources of vitamin B.
  • As for biotin, it is true that dogs can produce it themselves thanks to the bacteria in their intestines, but if you're giving them an antibiotic to treat an infectious disease, they won't be making vitamin H.
  • Dogs can also make vitamin C on their own, as it can be found in the of ascorbic acid (present in glucose). However, the amount generated will not always be sufficient, and it will be important to supplement your vitamin C intake by giving you some fruits and vegetables that you can eat.
  • Natural sources of vitamin D are often limited to white fish and to blue fish and, of course, sunbathing, as it is absorbed through the skin. However, there are studies that suggest that these sources of vitamin D are not sufficient on their own.

Have you noted which vitamins dogs need? The ones we have analyzed in this list are some of the most important, and all of them are found in the vitamin complex balukaVIT from Baluka . This food supplement is rich in these vitamins, essential amino acids and turmeric, a powerful anti-inflammatory. Our dog has everything he needs thanks to having supported his diet with this supplement!
