7 Signs Your Dog Needs a Pet Supplement

We all love our pets dearly and would do pretty much anything for them. Personally, at those times when I’m sitting in the vet’s waiting room is when I get a serious case of guilt and question the care I have provided for my pet to assure a long and enjoyable life. 7 signs your dog needs a pet supplement provides information so you can make a decision regarding overall daily care of your dog or cat.

Here are my TOP 7 SIGNS your pet should be on a Supplement Dr. Andrew Jones, DVM

1. Limping, lameness, stiff movements, especially after rising from getting up. The most common cause of these signs is from Arthritis, seen in middle age and older pets. Supplementing with Glucosamine, Chondroitin, MSM and Essential Fatty Acids can reduce pain and inflammation.

2. Chronic itching and scratching. When your pet has these signs, they likely have an Allergy. Supplementing with Essential Fatty Acids, and Key Antioxidants can decrease the inflammatory response in the skin- meaning LESS itching and scratching.

3. Recurrent bouts of Diarrhea or Vomiting- in this case your pet may be having difficulty digesting certain ingredients, or suffering from some type of disease in which the intestinal tract gets easily inflamed. Either way beneficial bacteria called Probiotics are often helpful, decreasing the severity and frequency of GI upset.

4. Chronic and ongoing Ear Infections. The most common underlying cause of ear infections is Allergies. A supplement that decreases the allergic signs can lessen the chance of ear infections- Essential Fatty Acids, Antioxidants and Probiotics can help in this case.

5. Withdrawn and Sleeping longer- this can be seen in older pets which may have joint pain and discomfort of arthritis. Old age does NOT mean inactivity and less interaction. An effective Arthritis supplement can make your pet feel better, and be LESS withdrawn.

6. Constant Paw chewing, excessive hair loss, and ‘Foul’ Odor. The smelling pet is a BIG sign that your pet has an underlying health disorder, and can benefit from a Supplement. This could be a food allergy, inhalant allergy, and secondary skin infections with yeast or bacteria. Supplementing with Essential Fatty Acids, Probiotics, and Antioxidants can decrease the smell.

7. TOO many trips to your Vet. If you have a pet that seems to repeatedly be getting ill, then you should look at what you are feeding them, and do what you can to PREVENT diseases from happening in the first place. Supplementing with nutrients that may improve your pets immune response to disease, such as Colustum, Maiitake and selected Vitamins and Minerals.

Dr. Jones Ultimate Canine Health Formula - Complete Dog Health Supplement

I think one of my two Cavaliers probably needs to be on this supplement. Sometimes we may take our dog’s good health for granted and it’s surprising how fast the years pass then we may wish we had done more during the earlier years.

I’ll leave you with my favorite saying, one that I think summarizes the human-pet relationship.

“She is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are her life, her love, her leader. She will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of her heart. You owe it to her to be worthy of such devotion.”  ~~Unknown

  1. allergy dog food says:

    I think you’ve done a nice job of getting high-level overview of some of the supplements that dogs need. It’s good for people to realize that a lot of dogs don’t get all of the nutrients they need from their dog food. When you combine this with a lot of the cheap dog foods that are currently on the market, supplementation becomes even more important.

  2. “withdrawn and sleeping longer”

    Like master, like dog.
    I guess my dog has taken after my habits. He sleeps all day, stays up all night, and has as much energy as a terminal patient in coma.

  3. James, I had to read your comment twice to see if you were someone I knew. Seems we share the same situation. One of my dogs sleeps no matter what. The younger one sleeps when I do and that seems to be more in the daytime than the night time these days. Thanks for your comment.

  4. I think point no. 5 – if your dog smells bad – really needs to be emphasized.

    Visit any dog shelter for sick animals. The stench will be overpowering, all coming from sick dogs. If your dog starts to smell bad even after you’ve taken good care of his hygiene, it should set some alarm bells ringing.

    I unfortunately, found out much too late about this.
