Vitamins and Minerals That Your Dog Needs

 Keeping your dog healthy long-term means that you need to pay keen attention to what your dog is eating. Not all dog food is the same; some cheaper brands have more filler in the food than healthy ingredients. That is not to say that more expensive dog foods are filled only with great ingredients. 

One of the best ways that you can make sure that your dog is getting all of the right ingredients packed with vitamins and minerals is to make some of the dog food yourself.

But what do dogs really need when it comes to vitamins and minerals?

Dog Nutrient Profile As They Grow

When your dog is a pup, it will need nutrients that are designed to support the rapid rate at which its body and brain are developing. 

Puppy food will usually be softer and easier to digest and still packed with everything they need. You'll need to keep an eye on the gums, too - because as their teeth come through, only eating dry food could be painful. 

After some discussion with your vet, you might decide to add some extra supplements into their diet - and this can help with a glossy coat, bright eyes, and happy digestive tracts. 

There are two different nutrient profiles that you should be aware of when it comes to your dog - one is the growth and reproduction phase of life, and the other is maintenance. 

Puppies, lactating dogs, and pregnant females need a different nutrient count and a much higher vitamin and mineral requirement. Their bodies are working much harder in these stages than at any other time in their life. 

The maintenance stage is when they are out of the puppy stage and not pregnant or lactating (or just a male dog). The aim here is to make sure that the food they eat supports their general needs across the board. 

What Vitamins And Minerals Does My Dog Need?

Just like humans, dogs need to have a set amount of vitamins and minerals every day to keep healthy. Not only that but dogs need, and don’t make omega-3 fatty acids (and some other fatty acids), read up on the benefits on this link

Each one plays an essential part, and that is why it is important to check the dog food that you are feeding them - and make additions like supplements where needed. 


Did you know that a dog needs chloride? Or what about copper? Minerals aren't something that we often think about - but they are essential. Here is what they need and why. 


Copper is essential for bones, connective tissues, and forming college, which gives your dog a beautiful coat. Copper aims with the development of red blood cells and pigmentation of the skin and coat. 


Zinc aids growth reproduction improves the immune system protein digestion, supports healthy skin, regulates thyroid function, and helps heal wounds too. Poke, lam, liver, brewer's yeast, and eggs have plenty of zinc in them. 


Iron is essential for transporting oxygen through the body, as well as helping to support the immune system. Iron can be found in legumes, fish, red meat, and eggs. 


Magnesium is one of the main components of enzymes and bones and has a significant impact on neurotransmission. 

Calcium & Phosphorus

Phosphorus and calcium work together and are essential for teeth and bones. These both help with the following: 

  • Contraction muscles

  • Blood coagulation

  • Hormone secretion 

  • Nerve impulse transmission

  • Dilation and constriction of blood vessels 

Calcium helps to keep blood flow constant and your dog's heart rate stable too. If your dog doesn't get enough calcium, it will be leached from the bones, so calcium is a must. 

Chloride, Potassium & Sodium 

There are three electrolytes that are considered primary to dogs. Socium, chloride, and potassium. These electrolytes keep the fluid balances correct within your dog.
