If you’re wondering what to look for in puppy supplements, you’ve come to the right place! When preparing the house for a new furmily member, we do our very best to ensure we have everything to get them started off on the right paw. But what are the puppy essentials when it comes to nutritional support? Let us help you navigate the challenges of being a new puppy parent.

The Importance of a Balanced Diet 

We understand the joy of having a new puppy and how exciting it can be to buy a new comfy bed, enriching toys, and a fashionable harness. Even though these should also be on your shopping list, a balanced nutrition is crucial in helping your furkiddo grow healthy and strong.

A balanced nutrition is crucial in helping your furkiddo grow healthy and strong.

Providing the proper nutrients can help build a strong foundation for your puppy’s full body development. The right diet can also help reduce the risk of the progression of health problems later in life.

The best way to start offering a balanced meal to your puppy is by ensuring that their food contains the right amount of protein, carbohydrates, fat, vitamins, and minerals. An easy way to control every element of your dog’s food is by making homecooked meals. Consult a specialist for specific recommendations based on your little one’s breed, size, and age. At NHV we have an in-house Veterinarian Nutritionist that can help build a diet plan with all that in mind!

How Can Puppy Supplements Help? 

In addition to a healthy diet, supplements like NHV Multi Essentials can help provide that. This herbal multivitamin offers rich sources of vitamins and minerals that can help promote bone and muscle development and promote overall vitality.

The earliest you start being proactive about your furkiddo’s health, the better. Some supplements offer properties that can help reduce the risk of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and arthritis. That’s the case with NHV PetOmega 3 fish oil blend.

The EPA and DHA omega 3s in this formula also provides critical building blocks for healthy skin, coat, eye, and brain development. Lastly, PetOmega 3 can help promote immune function and is beneficial against oxidative stress, which can translate into chronic illness prevention.

Addressing Typical Puppy Issues Naturally

Despite helping fill any nutritional voids, natural supplements can also help address typical health problems that puppies are more vulnerable to than older dogs. Parasite infestations are a great example!

Keep your eyes out for signs of worms or internal parasites, such as itching, diarrhea, or lethargy. Vet-formulated supplements like NHV Inulin-PK can work like a natural dewormer. This herbal formula can also aid in supporting your furkiddo’s gastrointestinal system and soothe possible internal discomfort caused by these parasites.

Furthermore, puppies are learning to recognize the world around them and mostly do it with their mouths. You will probably notice them biting, licking, and swallowing everything, including things they shouldn’t. That is one of the reasons why puppies tend to have soft stools or even issues with diarrhea.

Supplements like NHV Plantaeris may help relieve these symptoms and promote healthy bowel movements. If diarrhea persists or is accompanied by vomiting and lethargy, please take your furbaby to your veterinarian as other things might be on play.

Your furkiddo should be more than four weeks old, fully weaned, and vaccinated before adding any natural puppy supplements to their regimen. Multi Essentials, PetOmega 3, Inulin-PK, and Plantaeris are our only oral formulas recommended for any furkiddo under four months old. 

Remember, regular check-ups with your veterinarian are essential for maintaining your puppy’s health and preventing any potential problems.
