Just because supplements are sold in health food stores rather than a pharmacy doesn’t mean they have no affect in the body. They can absolutely have an effect -- and in many other countries, they are regulated as medicines.
In this seminar, Dr. Dressler goes over the (sometimes complex) issues that arise when you give your dog supplements. For example, manufacturers often don’t tell you when NOT to use their supplements! Also, there are always risks for side effects, even with the safest of supplements.
Dr. Dressler outlines the best way to approach this topic. This must-listen seminar is a crash course in the mindset you should use when evaluating supplements for your dog.
