Many people take vitamins and supplements to maintain optimum health, and now more and more people are giving their pets supplements that are specifically formulated for their needs. As with humans, animals that do not get enough nutrients from their food may have health problems or less resistance to disease and illness. Processed ingredients, poor-quality protein sources and refined grains often deplete the nutrient value of commercial pet foods.

If your pet has been diagnosed with a vitamin or mineral deficiency, has a poor-quality diet, or has specific health concerns, it would be a good idea to check out supplementing your pet’s diet.

Common pet supplements include those for strengthening the joints and usually will contain glucosamine and chondroitin. These ingredients have been beneficial in treating arthritis in both animals and humans. Supplements that help with dry, flaky skin and help to protect and condition their fur have ingredients such as fish oil that add essential fatty acids for increased moisture. Antioxidants like vitamins C and E can be helpful in reducing inflammation. Digestive problems in pets can often be improved by giving them prebiotics and probiotics, which offer the added benefits of maintaining a healthy immune system and reducing allergy symptoms.

The qualified and knowledgeable staff at Dreamland Pet are happy to help you find the right products for your pet.
