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.
