As pets become older, many pet owners ask whether supplements and vitamins for dogs and cats are really necessary for feline or canine health. There is little doubt that supplements and vitamins are helpful for people, so if we consider that animals experience many of the same diseases and ailments that people experience, it may reason that vitamins and supplements could be helpful for our furry friends, especially as they age. 

Nutrition and a healthy diet are important factors in supplying pets with the vitamins they need as they age. However, just like people, pets may require additional vitamins and supplements as they age, especially if they develop an illness or injury. 

Cat and dog vitamins and supplements for pets can help maintain good health throughout the various stages of a pets life. Some of the more common ailments or illnesses pets may require supplementation include urinary health, joint health, skin and coat, cardiac health, immune health, and digestion. Not all supplements are appropriate for both cats and dogs, but there are many supplements that can be helpful to either cats or dogs. Below are some of the supplements offered by our sponsor at Fera Pet Organics you may want to discuss with your vet for your aging pet.
