Since it is still Covid 19 season, we must ensure the health of our furry pets. We cannot be complacent. Good thing petshop.ph is currently offering online services for your pet needs.
Here is a list of the usual vitamins needed and what are available at the shop.
Vitamin A for Dogs
Vitamin A is the vitamin in carrots that is responsible for that good vision your parents promised you. This fat-soluble vitamin is also responsible for growth, fetal development, immune function, and cell function. This will help to strengthen the immunity of your pets.
B Vitamins for Dogs
- Thiamine helps regulate energy and carbohydrate metabolism, and activates ion channels in neural tissue.
- Riboflavin, B12, and niacin help facilitate enzyme function.
- Vitamin B6 is especially vital. This vitamin is responsible for glucose generation, red blood cell and nervous system function, hormone regulation, immune response, niacin synthesis, and gene activation.
- Pantothenic acid helps with energy metabolism.
- Folic acid plays a role in amino acid and nucleotide metabolism and in mitochondrial protein synthesis
Vitamin C for Dogs
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant which can help reduce inflammation and cognitive aging. Dogs can actually synthesize vitamin C on their own in their livers, but in some cases supplementation may offer health benefits. So better give them that extra push.
Vitamin D for Dogs
Vitamin D allows your dog’s body to balance minerals like phosphorous and calcium for healthy bone growth. Without it, your dog would not be able to develop properly or maintain healthy muscles and bones. Imagine the dog not enjoying playtime because of the uncomfortable feeling in their bones.
Vitamin E for Dogs
Vitamin E is one of your dog’s defenses against oxidative damage. This fat-soluble vitamin is also essential for cell function and fat metabolism. Deficiencies can lead to eye and muscle degeneration and reproductive problems.
Vitamin K for Dogs
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin instrumental in activating your dog’s blood’s ability to clot. Ingestion of certain rat and mouse poisons inhibit dogs’ ability to use the vitamin K in their bodies, which leads to hemorrhaging and death if not treated.
Choline for Dogs
Choline is a necessary component of the phospholipid cell membrane. It supports healthy brain and liver function, and is occasionally used as part of a treatment plan for pets with epilepsy.
