How Do Dog Food Supplements Work?

Dog food supplements are supplements that supplement the existing dog diet. Supplements are given to pets generally for health reasons in the same way we take supplements for various health concerns or to maintain a healthy and balanced immune system to help prevent illness. They are different from 'treat' as they are formulated to contain vitamins, minerals and other ingredients designed to improve the overall well-being of dogs and sometimes target specific diseases or complaints.

There are many brands of supplements available that promote various aspects of health and they can come in many forms including tablets, pellets, concentrated powders and fluids (solutions). Probably the most well-known disease is arthritis as it is as common to humans as we are to our age and also to our dogs. Other supplements are given to include allergies, digestive problems, skin problems, coat problems, weight problems and dental problems.

The diet for pet dogs has changed dramatically from their descendants to gray wolves and while modern-day breeders strive to create a healthy balanced diet for pets, many veterinarians have acknowledged that some of these dog foods may be lacking in essential nutrients and complementary foods may be recommended to supplement diet. This can be for simple maintenance purposes or it can treat certain diseases.

Breeding between domestic dogs has also left a legacy of a known disease among many breeds that can be treated by giving your dog extra food. The most common of these problems are osteoarthritis, arthritis and degenerative diseases such as hip and elbow displacements. This type of skeletal problem is common in older dogs, but can be seen to affect most of the domestic dog population.

James Spratt created his first commercial dog food around 1860. He called it 'Dog Meat Fibrine Dog Meat & # 39; and started the first mass production of dog food provided. In fact, this first commercial dog biscuit is the first dog supplement provided in addition to the regular dog diet (in most cases it may have been leftover, raw meat, bone and vegetable and fruit available). Inspired by the reaction to this initial offer, James Spratt continues to refine his recipe and develop more complete dog food for all types of dogs. Spratt has created many formulas that target different levels of life and continues to sell a variety of other dog products. Spratt was finally acquired by General Mills in 1950.

Spratt's great success in the dog food market has introduced more and more manufacturers hoping for the same success and led to the billions-pound market we see today. Industry development and processes enable new packaging and distribution of market services including tinned dog food that can be shipped worldwide.

The availability of ingredients increased dramatically after World War II as well as with a wide variety of foods and manufacturers. Convenience and convenience for owners coupled with scientific advances in nutrition saw a growing demand for various dog foods and dog food supplements to meet the needs of the owners.

As scientific advances enable advances in human nutrition, there is also an increase in nutrition for dogs and supplements (supplements). In the last twenty years the popularity and variety of dog food supplements has increased through information sharing and as clinical trials reveal many of the ingredients used to treat human diseases can also provide significant benefits to our dog friends.

There are basically three types of supplements available:

(i) Grade Supplements of 'Pharmaceuticals' can only be transmitted with a prescription from a veterinarian (a patented product that generally includes strong nutrients) and should only be given to pets if prescribed by their veterinarian.

(ii) Supplemental & # 39; Neutraceutical & # 39; available over the counter (and on the internet). This may contain 'active ingredient'. which have various effects on the health of dogs and formulas are usually targeted to help with certain diseases (ingredients may include natural ingredients that are not patentable to pharmaceutical companies).

(iii) Treatment of 'Herbs' which contains natural plants and flora extracts that may have a history of certain health benefits.
