When talking to modern Veterinarians about Dog Supplements, the conversation will often begin discussing diet. Some Vets may even explain that pet nutrition issues exist because processed pet food is manufactured at very high temperatures. Ultimately, omega-3 fatty acids are sensitive to heat and light which means that essentially, by the time processed pet food is packaged, the omega 3’s are basically chemically inactive.
Some Vets will further recommend to include as much whole and organic food in your dogs’ diet as possible. It’s also understood that it can be difficult to eat healthy at all times.
As humans, we are not always able get the essential nutrients we need either. As much as we try, we often have to make unhealthy choices that result in potential bodily function issues.
When it comes to our dogs, most dog parents would say that their dogs eat better than the humans do!
While many dogs live healthy by consuming proper and biologically appropriate diets, there is still a potential risk when it comes to complete nutrition. It’s because of that risk that dog parents have added dog supplements to their dogs diets.
Many dog parents have reported that dog supplements have improved the overall health of their aging dogs. Others start supplementing early (before problems arise) to prevent common health problems later in their dogs life. Some people use dog supplements to clear up issues as they present themselves, but then stop using dog supplements once the problem is gone.
The most common concern in regards to starting with dog supplements comes down to the commitment regarding the cost and ease of use.
Our dog supplements are highly concentrated and that means a little goes a long way. One bottle may last 30 to 60 days or more depending on your dogs size.
Let’s say that your Fido is 70 pounds and you purchased our dog supplement in dropper form (sublingual use / administer under the tongue) for $30.
Based on the most active dog in great health, with a proper diet and is less than 3 years old, we are going to recommend approximately three (3) drops per meal (2 meals per day).
Since that product is 30 milliliters (ML) by volume, and a full pipette (glass tube under the cap) has the maximum capacity of one milliliter; this means that there are approximately 20 drops in one milliliter.
The total amount of drops in our 30ML size is approximately 600 drops!
In the above example, Fido only needs a total of 6 drops per day which means that $30 bottle has the potential to last 100 days. That means just 30 cents a day to supplement Fido’s nutrition!
Lets say that you purchased our dog supplement in spray form (spray on meals for ease of use and convenience) for $40.
It’s basically $10 more for the convenience of a spray. While the dropper version should be administered sublingually (under the tongue), the spray form is intended to simply spray on meals. While the size is larger (60ML total volume), the formulation is intentionally different.
There are approximately 240 sprays per bottle.
In keeping with the Fido example above, Fido needs a total of 4 sprays per day. This means that the spray has the potential to last for 60 days! That means 66 cents per day to supplement Fido’s nutrition!
Of course, these measurements depend on the age, size, overall health condition, diet and more.
