Three Supplements Every Dog Should Take

three supplements every dog should take boulder holistic vet angie krause

I don’t routinely prescribe a lot of supplements. Whenever possible, I like to treat dogs with whole food diets.

However, I recommend these three supplements for all dogs.

  1. Milk Thistle. This herb supports your dog’s liver. The liver helps detoxify the body and metabolize drugs and food. I use Rx Vitamins for Pets Hepatosupport.
  2. Fish Oil. This oil is rich in omega-3 fatty acids. These fatty acids help decrease inflammation in the body. Omega-3 fatty acid supplementation can help arthritis, inflammatory bowel disease, kidney disease, heart disease and more. For dogs that are not allergic to fish, I use Nordic Naturals Omega 3 Pet.
  3. Probiotics. The bacteria in your dog’s digestive tract heavily influences digestion, hormone balance and immune function. The balance of the bacteria is the cornerstone of health. Adding a good dose of bacteria can make a huge difference in your dog’s overall health. I recommend Vetriscience’s Vetri Mega Probiotic.

As always, work with your veterinarian when adding supplements to your dog’s diet. I would love to hear from you! Please comment below.

I would appreciate your advice about the pros and cons of introducing a turmeric supplement. I see that you recommend using fish oil to maintain a healthy inflammation response. What are the major differences in preventing/treating inflammation using fish oil vs. turmeric? I myself take New Chapter’s Turmeric Force, which contains 320mg Turmeric(rhizome)hydroethanolic extract(min. 22mg curcuminoids) and 80 mg Turmeric(rhizome) supercritical extract. Would a serving of this particular supplement be safe for Gia to take? If… Read more »
