Dogs have specific dietary needs that, if left unfulfilled, may result in health problems. That’s where a liquid multivitamin for dogs may be of benefit. Commercial dog foods generally contain beneficial grains, meats, vegetables, and vitamins, but cheaper brands are sometimes made with sketchy animal “by-products” (which is essentially slaughterhouse waste), dodgy chemicals, and artificial coloring. Multivitamins can provide dogs with the nutrients that are commonly missing from commercial dog foods. Let’s look at some of the most important nutrients in a liquid multivitamin for dogs.
Fatty Acids (“good fats”)
This may come as a surprise to you, but not all fats are unhealthy. Saturated and trans-fats definitely are, but there are many unsaturated fats that serve useful roles in the body. Monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats have even been linked to improved heart health in humans. Omega-3 fatty acids are perhaps the most well-known “good” fats; they are primarily found in fish, nuts, and various oils. In dogs, good (unsaturated) fatty acids are essential to the maintenance of healthy skin, a strong immune system, and other important functions.
Liquid Antioxidants For Dogs
Antioxidants are substances that help protect cells by satiating the dangerous molecules (free radicals) that make them unstable. While this may seem negligible because of its minuteness, the health of the cell is the vigor of the body. In short, antioxidants keep your dog’s cells healthy and allow them to carry out their innumerable function. Some antioxidants have familiar names, like vitamin C and E, while others are obscure, like N-acetylcysteine or isorhamnetin, but all play a role in sustaining your dog’s health. One of the best ways to provide antioxidants for your dog is to use a daily liquid antioxidant for dogs.
Essential Amino Acids
Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Essential amino acids have to be ingested because dogs’ bodies cannot create them naturally. Meats will generally be the best source of amino acids because they tend to be high in protein. Essential amino acids are responsible for creating enzymes, hormones, DNA, and other important proteins. If your dog doesn’t ingest sufficient essential amino acids, they might suffer from a myriad of serious health problems. Essentially, essential amino acids are essential.
These enzymes help your dog’s body break down the food they eat and convert it to usable energy. Different enzymes play different roles in this energy conversion. Notable examples of digestive enzymes include amylase, lipase, and protease. Amylase helps break down starches into sugars, lipase helps break down and transport fats, and protease helps break down proteins. It is important that dogs ingest such enzymes to help them utilize the energy and resources contained in their food.
