A few important things to keep in mind when shopping for a supplement for your animal companion.
There are two reasons to add a supplement to your dog or cat’s health regimen. One is to support his diet nutritionally. The other is to provide specific ingredients for a particular health benefit. In either case, let your veterinarian know you’re starting the supplement, especially if your animal is on prescription medication that could potentially interact with supplement’s ingredients. Some supplements may either increase or decrease the effects of a medication your veterinarian has prescribed. Your veterinarian will be able to look up the ingredients and compare the product’s purpose to your dog or cat’s specific needs.
