Are you feeding a raw diet....is that why you are looking at this supplement?
You must be in Germany?
Yes to both! I can't imagine going to kibble now..she LOVES her chicken.
GOOD for you! :D
I know every raw diet feeder has their own opions about supplementing the diet. Most think it is complete without adding vitamins/minerals. I am on the other side. I believe that since it is not a "fresh kill" that there are vital elements missing. Therefore I make my own multiple mix according to Dr. Karen Becker's book Real Food For Healthy Dogs and Cats.
I don't know anything about the ethics (source testing) of that particular company, but it does sound like a rounded out supplement.
Also, don't forget that rotating to a different meat is very important and adding omega's.;)
This article is about a cat but the message is clear about supplements for cats or dogs on a raw diet: http://healthypets.mercola.com/sites...t-of-pets.aspx
Looks like a good product for a grown dog. I would be careful not to over medicate a puppy. Just make sure to switch meats and throw in some kraut and other leafy greens. I put a mix of stock and rice with veggies as a filler after my puppy gnaws down a few lbs of meat on bone.
My dog LOVES sauerkraut! I have to rinse it well to reduce the sodium content and mix it into rice. He goes nuts for it and it gives him good minerals, vitamins and fibers for solid stools.
Yogurt is great in small doses as a treat. That is good yogurt. An egg a week helps the coat and is awesome protein.
I think that if you mix it up, your puppy will get all the nutrients he or she needs.
I do give my puppy 1000mg of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) daily. A quality vitamin C pill. He just chews it up. This will prevent hip problems in a developing dog. Even if the clan has a history of it.
