Calcium for your dog

Wednesday, January 11, 2012
posted by Jim Murphy

Dogs, like people require certain vitamins and minerals in their diet in order to maintain good health. Calcium is one of those minerals. Calcium plays several important roles in your dog’s body. It ensures that bones and teeth remain strong, helps keep the nerve impulses traveling smoothly, and keeps your dog’s metabolism functioning properly. When dog’s don’t get enough calcium, they can develop a serious condition called rickets. This causes the bones to become soft and they can bend or break easily. Growing puppies, mother dogs who are nursing pups, and dogs who can’t metabolize calcium properly may need an extra calcium supplement to stay healthy.  Your veterinarian can recommend the best way to provide it.

Remember, your pets count!
