Dog and cat nutrition should not just begin and end with the feed that you give to your pet. While most dog and cat food in
the market today aim for a good balance in nutritional values, there is still a wide variation in terms of vitamin and mineral supplementation because there is such a wide variety of dogs and cats. In addition to breed, there is also age and special conditions to consider like pregnancy or puppyhood.
There are also special food formulated for dogs and cats that have specific health conditions like hip and joint issues. Due to this wide variation of nutritional formulations and of health conditions it makes sense to stick with your dog or cat's current food but apply a separate nutrition supplement. This way you're sure that they get their proper mix of vitamins and minerals.
There are many ways to do this. Some come in pill form, but those have limited practicality because your cat or dog might not like having a pill given to them. Other supplements take the form of pills that can be crumbled. This is better than full on pills but still your pet might be able to detect it; and if you crumble it the wrong way your pet might not get the full dose. Some take liquid form. While this is better than the other two, taste and palatability issues might be a problem.
One particular effective way to administer vitamin and mineral supplements to your pet is through the use of powdered formulations like Rich Health Vionate Vitamin/ Mineral Powder from Pet Store
This vitamin mineral powder can be easily introduced to your pet's diet; especially if your pet is using dry dehydrated food that needs to be mixed. With a little bit of water, just mix the Rich Health Vionate Vitamin/ Mineral Powder. Once that's dissolved and thoroughly mixed with the rest of the food, your pet wouldn't even notice that it's eating food with supplement.
So for maximum flexibility, try Rich Health Vionate Vitamin/ Mineral Powder.
