Pet Supplements

In addition to exercise, proper diet and general nutritional dog supplements canine health can be rounded out in such a way that’s catered and tailored. For instance, there are some health issues that plague dogs later in life that can be helped with certain dietary dog supplements that cater to specific health needs. Here we will look at some of the most common dog health issues and the dog supplies that can be provided to help ease, or altogether avoid, these problems thus enriching your dog’s health late into life.

Arthritis in dogs is as common with old age as it is with humans, and with similar symptoms. And although the dog cannot speak, per se, to complain about this ailment, it will be evident that they are experiencing pain. Further confusing is that there are about twenty different types of arthritis that can plague your dog, each with its own symptom and having an effect on a different part of the dog’s body. Some types are general, affecting the entire body (Inflammatory Arthritis, Degenerative Joint Disease, AutoImmune Arthritis, etc.) and others are joint-specific (Knee Arthritis, Hip Dysplasia, Shoulder Degeneration, etc.). A supply that can supplement your dog’s diet is Glucosamine, which serves to ‘lubricate’ the joints thus easing the ailing effects of dog arthritis.

Digestion issues in dogs can be abated with the addition of yogurt and Kefir, homeopathic dog supplements, to your dog’s diet. These supplies contain ‘good’ bacteria which aid in your dog’s digestive process. Kefir, for instance, has bacteria that will colonize your dog’s digestive tract thus reducing intestinal disorders by reducing gas and improving solid wastes (and also removal) making for the overall promotion of proactive dog health. This supply can also aid your dog’s coat and skin health, as well as assuage anxiety issues.

Skin and fur health in dogs can also be aided by the addition of fatty acids to their diet. There are nearly 70 fatty acids available, and all play an important role in the structure of cell generation and many chemical body reactions (such as hormones and overall dog energy). The dog’s liver and other tissues can produce many of the required fatty acids, though the one the dog cannot make on its own is Linoleic Acid (omega-6 fatty acid). This one fatty acid that is missing from the dog’s inherited nature is called an essential fatty acid as its supplementation is necessary to ensure optimal dog health. Omega 6 can be supplemented by certain dog supplies found at reputable dog stores, or naturally in fish or Flax Seed oil, for instance.
