These help on the one hand in the absorption of fat-soluble vitamins, and on the other hand, they ensure healthy joints and strong nerves. High-quality herbal sources of healthy fatty acids are flaxseed, nut, olive and hemp oil. A teaspoon of ground flaxseed is a good addition to the dog food. Animal sources of omega-3 include cod liver oil (use sparingly), fatty fish and fish oil.
Foods with high vitamin C content
Various studies have shown that the regular administration of vitamin C prevents aging in dogs. In addition, vitamin C has a positive effect on wound healing, cholesterol, the immune system, hormone levels and mineral intake.
Old, overweight or sickly dogs benefit especially from it. These include carrots, rose hips, acerola, cress, strawberry leaves or sea buckthorn.
First, you give a small amount of vitamin C per day and steadily increase it until the dog's faeces change. Then the maximum amount that can be absorbed by the animal is reached.
Eggs have many nutrients that dogs can use well. Of course, they contain valuable protein that strengthens the muscles. Calcium, which is important for stable bones, is mainly present in the eggshell, which is why it can be added to the feed finely ground. Trace elements and vitamins make the egg a healthy food for dogs. However, the consumption should be limited to three eggs per week, since the egg white also contain substances that are difficult to digest.
