6 Reasons For A Multivitamin

Top 6 Reasons Your Dog Needs a Multivitamin

“Should I give my dog a daily multivitamin?”

It’s a question dog parents often ask.

After all, we want to keep our fur babies happy and healthy, and the number one way to do that is to ensure their nutritional needs are being met. Unlike us humans, dogs cannot go grocery shopping. They rely on YOU to provide high-quality food and supplements.  

This includes vitamins!

Luckily, Rusty's Pet Essentials makes understanding dog multivitamins easy. Let’s learn about the benefits of vitamins and minerals for dogs and see why our Mealtime Multivitamin gets “two paws up” from dogs of all breeds, sizes and ages.

6 Reasons Your Dog Needs a Multivitamin

Dog multivitamins are an important part of good overall canine health. As Animal Wellness Magazine explains, “Vitamins are essential for promoting specific and diverse chemical reactions in our dogs’ bodies.”

Here are 6 reasons your dog should take a multivitamin.

  1. Immune System Support

First, multivitamins boost a dog’s immune system by increasing its ability to fight off illness. A robust immune is less likely to experience poor health outcomes and will strengthen cells against sickness, disease, and toxins.    


  1. Helps Dry & Sensitive Skin

Next, did you know? A multivitamin containing natural ingredients (such as  Mealtime Multi) improves a dog’s skin and coat. Dry, itchy, inflamed, or sensitive skin will be soothed by the wild Alaskan salmon oil and biotin found in Rusty’s Pet Essentials products.

  1. Promotes Better Joint Mobility

Third, multivitamins are good for dogs because they improve joint mobility. All that walking, running, swimming, and playing fetch can take a toll on your pooch’s joints. The good news is, organic green lipped mussel is found in all the best dog vitamins. This natural inflammatory reduces joint discomfort and protects cartilage. 

  1. Fosters a Healthy Heart

They say a dog is the heartbeat of a home, and Rusty’s Pet Essentials agrees! That’s why we care about heart health. Multivitamins with Coenzyme Q-10 improve cardiac function and support the cardiovascular system.

  1. Gut & Digestive Support

Does your dog love pumpkins? Great! Another big benefit of dog multivitamins is the positive effect ingredients like pumpkin and probiotic blends have on a canine’s gut. These encourage beneficial bacteria and alleviate any digestion problems or tummy troubles. 

  1. Aids Bone Development

Lastly, your dog needs a multivitamin for bone development. Let’s face it…most commercial pet kibble is loaded with fillers, preservatives, and subpar ingredients. It’s easy to forget to look for what vitamins and minerals are included.

Unfortunately, a veterinarian might not realize your dog has a deficiency (for instance, calcium) until later on. Be proactive by feeding a multivitamin. Rusty’s Pet Essentials uses organic coral calcium to naturally aid bone development.
