How to: Introduce a New Supplement Into Your Dog's Diet

Posted by Justin Ramb

Introducing a dog supplement vitamin to your dog's diet can be an excellent way to improve their overall health and well-being. However, it's important to introduce new supplements gradually to avoid any adverse effects or digestive problems. Here are some tips on how to introduce a dog supplement vitamin to your dog's diet:
1) Start slowly

Start by adding a small amount of the supplement to your dog's food. You can start with a quarter or half of the recommended dose and gradually increase it over several days or weeks.

2) Mix the supplement with your dog's food

Mix the supplement thoroughly with your dog's food to ensure they eat it. You can also try adding a small amount of wet food or some low-sodium chicken broth to help entice them to eat the food.

3) Monitor your dog's reaction

Watch your dog's reaction to the supplement carefully. If they experience any digestive problems or other adverse effects, discontinue the supplement and talk to your veterinarian.

4) Be consistent

To get the most benefits from the supplement, it's important to be consistent with your dog's dosing. Make sure to give the supplement at the same time each day and stick to the recommended dosage.

5) Store the supplement properly

Store the supplement in a cool, dry place away from sunlight or moisture. Follow the manufacturer's instructions for storage to ensure the supplement retains its potency and freshness.

It is common for our furry friends to have a sensitive stomach when first introducing new ingredients to their diet. Make sure to follow these tips when introducing anything new into their diets but especially when it comes to supplements. Once their digestive system becomes used to the new ingredients, you'll start to see progress and improved health, lifestyle, and well-being.

As with anything, if there is a persistent condition that your animal does not improve from, we recommend you stop the product immediately and consult your regular veterinarian.
