    DefaultNeed vitamin supplements

    Due to a homecooked diet, I need to give my Lya some vitamin supplements. I tried one, but it had beef in it and she had an allergic reaction. Does anyone know of a all round vitamin supplement without allergins?

    Is there a reason why she could not have a Flinstone Chewable? That is what I take and I feel sure there is no beef in them and likely no wheat.



    Thanks!

    Where are you getting your homecooked diet? You need to be sure it's balanced. Humans vitamins are not for dogs; so flinstone vitamins won't work for your dog.

    Something such as Nupro or Missing Link might work for you.

    Ha, well I was having difficulties with good sources, but I found the 2000, 4th edition of the Small Animal Clinical Nutrition text book and now I am feeling better about things.

    Chapter 6, Making Pet Foods at Home, page 168, Table 6-2.
    "Human Adult Vitamin-Mineral tablet (9 g/tablet, give 1 tablet/day)
