Vitamins

Pet vitamins for dogs, cats, puppies, kittens, senior animals, to help sustain health, wellness and disease prevention.

The immune system is a complex array of cells that are found throughout your pet’s body. Immune cells are designed to function in conjunction with one another to provide a fortified defense against unwanted invaders. It is an intricate system that keeps your pet healthy and protects them against all sorts of invaders including allergens, viruses, bacteria, microbes, parasites and toxins. The immune system is directed at facilitating normal function and is not intended to be suppressed or stimulated. In cases of dysfunction, your pet requires whole body systemic support.

For puppies and kittens, vitamin supplementation may help ensure that they get the vitamins needed for healthy tissues, strong bones and teeth, and overall good health.

For adult dogs and cats, vitamin supplementation can help make sure that they are always healthy and in top form.

For dogs and cats who tend to eat less, and as a result, absorb fewer nutrients, including vitamins and minerals, also likewise, lose more essential nutrients through the kidney and urinary tracts.

Vitamin supplementation is essential Antioxidants such as Vitamins A, C and E can help eliminate free radical damage and remove toxicities from the animal body. These actions may help slow down the aging process and may help prevent disease such as cancer. 

There are a variety of vitamins required for the animal diet, which perform many functions to support general, systemic health and wellness, including the following:

Vitamin A is abundant in the yellow pigment (carotene) in plants. Dogs and cats can easily convert carotene into Vitamin A in their bodies, and the vitamin is stored in fat cells, mainly in the liver.

Vitamin A is very important to ensure the proper growth and development of puppies and kittens and it is essential for healthy hair and skin, strong muscles, as well as good night vision. Deficiency in vitamin A can cause female dogs and cats to have irregular ovulation and male dogs to become sterile.

Vitamin A is also an important antioxidant which may protect against certain forms of cancer in animals.

Please do not exceed recommended dosages for vitamin A. Overdoses of Vitamin A could cause weakness in the muscles and abnormal formation of bones. Unless a pet is given excessively high doses of vitamin A over a long period of time, toxicity is very rare.

Vitamin B Complex can be found in meat, milk, vegetables and fruit. B vitamins are important in maintaining a positive environment for neural regeneration. B vitamins are also essential for growth. Deficiency of B vitamins will result in a loss of reflexes and nerve control; poor growth; appetite loss; diarrhea; hair loss; eye abnormalities; and heart failure. B-complex (in particular B2 and B6) is also essential for the prevention of bladder stone formation in dogs and cats.

B complex is a balanced form of vitamin B supplementation. Since they are water soluble, any excess can be eliminated in the urine.

Vitamin C Benefits: Dogs and cats can produce Vitamin C in their bodies under normal situations; however, when an animal is under stress (either physically due to, say, an illness, or mentally due to for example boarding at a kennel), your pet may need vitamin C in excess of the body's manufacturing capacity.

Vitamin D Benefits: Dogs and cats can get Vitamin D from sunshine, as well as from meat such as liver or fish oils. Vitamin D helps the animal body to retain calcium and is important in bone and skeletal formation, as well as nerve and muscle control.

Vitamin E Benefits: The main sources of Vitamin E are from cold pressed vegetable oils, such as safflower oil and wheat germ, meats, nuts, and green leafy vegetables.

Vitamin E is an important nutrient and plays an important role in cell respiration and the formation of cell membranes. It is also a powerful antioxidant which facilitates fat oxidation and increases the production of HDL (good) cholesterol. It is useful in preventing and slowing the development of cataracts, heart conditions and other muscle disorders. At higher doses, it has anti-inflammatory properties and can prevent and improve chronic skin problems and immune mediated disorders. For dogs and cats with skin and coat problems, adding Vitamin E to their diets may provide a significant therapeutic health benefit.

Deficiencies of Vitamin E will cause cell damage, reproductive failure, and a host of other problems, such as skin problems, inflammatory problems, etc.

Vitamin K benefits are found mainly in some green and leafy vegetables, and egg yolk.

This vitamin is important for normal blood functions. Without Vitamin K, blood cannot clot. It is very rare that a dog or cat suffers from Vitamin K deficiency.

The importance of this vitamin lies more in its ability to treat poisoning in dogs and cats. Rat poison contains an ingredient called coumarin that can deplete the body of Vitamin K. As a result, rats that have ingested the poison will suffer from internal hemorrhage and die. Dogs and cats like eating rat poison or accidentally ingesting rat poison can also bleed to death.

Symptoms of poisoning can take up to 3 to 4 days to present and include:

depression

weakness

breathing difficulty

bruising

bleeding from any part of the body.
