Is there a good trusted well balanced multi-vitamin or combination of vitamins for dogs that dont eat dog food
Bumping and following this one. 😉 I definitely know there are! I’m not experienced enough to recommend anything yet though…what does your dog eat? If it’s a very well-balanced home made/raw diet, then he shouldn’t need too much extra.
Look into Nature’s Logic. I think it is called Whole Food Fortifier.
It really depends on what you are feeding already.
I try to vary the meats from beef to chicken etc… sometimes i can get some wellness core kibble in them if i mix egg with it …. but i know alot of the major dog foods have like the fatty acids and other vitamins to keep them healthy … But i am done with purchasing any dog food persay as they eat it for a few days then they tire of it and i am back to square one… so figured if there was a vitamin at least i would know they would have solid foundation… wish there was a food pyramid like for humans lol
oh and i have tried some of the mix in stuff like dynavite and honest kicthen etc… if it dosent smell good to them they refuse completely so looking for something i can slip them in a piece of meat etc lol
thanks theBCnut i will do that
You might want to look into getting Steve Brown’s book “Unlocking the Canine Ancestral Diet” and Dr. Karen Becker’s book “Real Food for Healthy Dogs and Cats” for some recipe ideas. They will tell you exactly what needs to be added to meat to make a balanced diet.
One of my favorites is from Nature’s Farmacy….order it online at Naturesfarmacy.com.
It’s called Dogzymes Ultimate. They also have Ultimate Complete now, which contains probs/enz, vitamins, minerals, joint health ingredients. This vitamin smells really good and the dogs love the taste.
B-naturals supplements are next on my list to try.
There’s really no need to add vitamins if you feed commercial food since it’s already fortified. You can add whole foods like raw eggs or fish oil, but giving synthetic ones like the tablets you see sold at big box stores can lead to vitamin overdose.
there are some holistic premixes that also incorporate whole foods like flaxseed and kelp, I would use those instead.
