Pet dietary supplements (also called dietary nutrients) are substances added to pet foods to make them nutritionally complete and balanced.
Pet therapeutic supplements (also called nutraceuticals) are foods or food nutrients that are taken orally to provide a health benefit, either for prevention or treatment of disease. To have a therapeutic effect, a therapeutic supplement is usually taken in a larger dose than the daily requirement of that same food when used as a nutrient.
Supplements are not a cure for sickness. In humans and dogs alike, health starts in the gut. Once the gut is healthy, the immune system can work more efficiently to eliminate the causes of different health issues. The correct supplements dispensed in the correct amounts allow the dog’s body to become naturally balanced.
