Barbara in LouisianaAnswer
Hi Barbara – thanks for your email. You wrote asking what are the recommendations for giving vitamins to puppies and adult dogs?
The recommendation is this: If you feed a good quality premium food, you don't need to give your dog vitamins. If you feed a lesser quality food, then vitamins are probably a good idea.
The same goes for puppies. If you feed a good quality puppy food (a premium good quality brand) – then you really don't need to give vitamins.
A couple articles that might be helpful to you are Vitamin Toxicity in Dogs
, Vitamin deficiency?
and Nutrition in Dogs
Best of luck!
