A couple of the most common questions I get as a vet is ….What food is the best for my pet? Does my pet need vitamins or supplements? My pet has (insert condition) can any supplements help…. my vet wasn’t sure about any and seemed wary of discussing it?
Well I am here to tell you, that the TYPE of food we are giving our pets everyday DOES matter. And there IS MOST DEFINITELY supplements out there that can help treat your pets condition. It’s also important to KEEP our healthy pets HEALTHY.
There are HUNDREDS to THOUSANDS of supplement companies out there. Some adding things not listed on their bottles that could be HARMFUL to our beloved pets. So how do we know which companies are reliable and safe? How do we know what they say is in their products are actually in it? The answer to that is its difficult. That is why I get and recommend to my patients products that i know are 100% SAFE, EFFECTIVE, and TESTED.

Are all supplements the same?
ABSOLUTELY NOT - the quality of the supplement varies greatly. From the additives added to product to the quality of sources from supplier to create the product.
Are the rules strict for labeling and does the supplement always contain whats listed?
It's very scary how companies are allowed to mislabel and falsely label products. Multiple documentaries and 20/20 episodes are available to show how scary over the counter supplements can be.
Do you 100% trust the supplements YOU recommend?
Yes - all products I discuss and recommend are completely trustworthy. I have had onsite visits to the production line and manufacturing plant of most the supplements I recommend.
Can dog food labels lie about what’s in the food and make the dog food bags very misleading?
There are thousands of dog food companies out there. MANY of them use marketing and labeling to trick people into thinking they are purchasing something for their pet that they aren’t.
Have you seen changes in chronic or acute disease with adding supplements to their diet?
It has been amazing over the years to see what whole food supplements and proper nutrition can do for sick patients. The body can do amazing things, and has great healing potential when provided the proper nutrition.
