Top Dog Vitamins to Try in 2023 – Dogster


I take three steps when selecting a dog vitamin or supplement for one of my patients. The first is to identify a medical problem a nutraceutical, or nutritional supplement, can help. The second is understanding the science and studies supporting its use. The third is choosing a manufacturer or brand I trust.

Nutraceuticals aren’t magic bullets or miracle cures, yet that’s how many are advertised. I view these treatments as an adjunct or “supplement” to a multimodal disease prevention and treatment approach. Some common canine medical conditions proven to benefit from nutraceuticals include:

  • arthritis
  • skin allergies
  • intestinal disorders
  • behavioral issues
  • weight management
  • aiding the immune system.

There are many (many) other indications with varying degrees of scientific evidence, but that is an excellent place to start.
