Calcium, Vitamin D and Bones

calciumtabletsCalcium and vitamin D are essential for building your dogs bones and teeth. These nutrients are especially important for growing puppies and for pregnant and lactating dogs. Dairy products, legumes and bones themselves contain lots of calcium. Most grains and meat contain little. Veterinarians do not like it when owners feed their dog a calcium deficient diet consisting of meat and grain alone. Their dogs may develop Osteoporosis, broken bones, loose teeth and arthritis. Calcium deficiency is rare, thanks to commercial pet foods that are easily prepared and properly balanced. If you suspect a problem, your veterinarian can use X rays to check your dog’s bone density, and detect hairline fractures.
