Animals have different physiological and structural systems and, therefore, need specific food and nutrients to remain in optimal health. Pets are often considered family members deserving special attention. Filling that need, the pet food industry has grown tremendously over the years. The question is, are these products providing enough quality nutrients.
Man’s best friend
Dogs are omnivorous domesticated descendants of the Canis genus that now enjoy places of pride in our homes. Man’s best friend is a perfect companion that can live a long, active life if properly cared for. Just like human beings, dogs need carbohydrates, fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and water in a balanced diet to stay healthy. However, many unscrupulous manufacturers of low-quality dog foods produce products that may not be nutritionally ideal.
Like people, dogs are prone to nutrient deficiencies under suboptimal dietary intake. So they may benefit from certain supplemental nutrients.
Specific health needs
Carnitine is an essential nutrient biosynthesized from the amino acids lysine and methionine and found in meat. It is required for the transport of fatty acids into the mitochondria for the generation of metabolic energy. It supports normal energy levels and healthy body composition and is important for heart health.1,2 Lipoic acid also provides mitochondrial support and may promote healthy brain aging in dogs.3 Vitamin E also has been shown to be important for physically active dogs’ health.4
So how can you be sure that you are giving your pet premium nutrition? Besides high-quality commercial foods that are nutrient-enriched, food supplements are the best way to ensure your pets are getting all the vitamins and minerals they need to live long, healthy lives.

Dog Mix contains significant amounts of high-grade nutrients usually reserved for the most expensive human supplements.
