Should You Supplement Your Older Dog’s Diet?

Many dog owners wonder if they should add a supplement to an older dog’s diet. As your dog ages, it becomes even more important to feed it a healthy dog food and add a beneficial supplement.

Older dogs, unlike puppies or young adult dogs, cannot absorb some vitamins, minerals, and electrolytes through their intestinal tract, and will expel more of them through their kidneys and urine. Some older dogs also eat less food and may not be getting their daily requirements of vitamins and minerals. Antioxidants such as vitamins A, E, and C (beta-carotene) may be instrumental in protecting against some of the normal aging processes that affect older dogs.

One of the very best supplements for an older dog is Winston’s Senior Complete Multi vitamin and mineral supplement. Winston’s Senior Multi-Vitamin contains close to 50 active ingredients that provide additional nourishment for an older dog. Even if you don’t believe your dog is suffering from nutrient depletion due to a poor diet, stress, or disease, giving it a supplement along with its normal diet, will guarantee your pet is receiving all the vitamins and minerals it needs for a healthy, active life.

When choosing a supplement for senior dogs, carefully check the label to be sure it includes the following ingredients:
* At least 8 essential vitamins including Vitamin A, B-complex, D, and E, as well as the B vitamins. Vitamins A and E are important antioxidants that help maintain a healthy immune system.

* All or most of these important minerals – Phosphorous, Potassium, Sodium, Chloride, Magnesium, Copper, Manganese, Iodine and Selenium.

Not all vitamin supplements contain these quality ingredients. Winston’s Senior Complete Multi does, and also contains lutein for the eyes, CoQ10 for the heart, digestive enzymes, lycopene for the cells, antioxidant Perna for the joints, vitamin K, zinc, calcium, Grape Seed Extract, Alpha Lipoic Acid, amino acids, vitamin C and more.

It doesn’t matter what species your dog is or its age, a healthy supplementation like Winston’s Senior Complete Multi will help it live the best quality life possible.

Pet Nutrition: Guest Post by Spark

Our Pets are Members of our Family…and They Need Complete Nutrition

We love them, but we can’t always tell how they are feeling. Our dog or cat may be lacking in energy, their bones or joints may hurt, or they could have a belly ache due to poor digestion. They aren’t able to tell us what they are thinking or feeling, or if their bodies are lacking the nutrients they need to stay healthy.
Our pets rely on us to provide them with what they need, but unfortunately most pet foods are highly processed and lack vital nutrients our pets need to thrive.  And research has shown the following 8 major groups of nutrients are important.

1.  Enzymes

Destroyed in the high heat manufacturing process of traditional pet food. Enzymes drive nearly every chemical and metabolic pathway in the body. Supports the absorption of vitamins and minerals.

2.  Vitamin D

Important for bone mineralization and integrity. Regulates blood levels

of calcium and phosphorus.

Helps support the immune system and joint health.

3.  Synbiotics

Probiotics & prebiotics “good bacteria” supports the living microbiome, the garden of beneficial bacteria in the digestive system. Supports proper digestion and the assimilation of nutrients.

4.  Aquatic SuperFoods

Algae provide the body with vitamins B, C, E, beta-carotene, magnesium, iron, trace miner­als and protein. Supports normal immunity, intestinal health and helps maintain strong bones and muscles.

5.  Fruit & Vegetable SuperFoods

Blueberries, spinach and broccoli work as powerful antioxidants. Supports the body to fight free radicals.

6.  Amino Acids

The body’s building blocks, approximately 20% cannot be produced by the body and must come from food. Critical to maintaining good health right down to the cellular level, while supporting healthy protein levels.

7.  Sea Vegetables

Provide trace minerals like calcium, iron, and iodine. Maintains strong bones and supports healthy thyroid and hormone levels.

8.  Juvenile Greens

Contains Vitamin E, phosphorus, magnesium, iron & potassium as well as protein and carotenoids. Helps maintain a healthy immune system and supports normal shedding.

That’s where a daily product like Spark comes in.  Spark is a comprehensive, natural, whole food supplement that was formulated by a leading veterinarian and is sprinkled on your pet’s food.  Spark contains 50 ingredients covering all 8 nutritional groups so you’ll see the Spark’s difference in your pet.

Buckets of food: GATOR!

I haven’t been posting about Kekoa’s culinary adventures every day, but trust me, she has turned into a regular Anthony Bourdain. When I first said I was doing this Foodie Bucket List for her, my good friend Annette at Biscuits by Lambchop decided to do something very special for us, and I wanted to share it with you all:

It really meant a lot to both of us that you did that. Thank you Annette. :D And they smelled really good, too.
