Adult Maintenance Plus for Dogs is a supplement that comes in tablet for so that it can be given as a treat or mixed in with your dog's food. It is formulated to enhance and help maintain your dog's general health. The scientifically balanced tablet contains essential vitamins, fatty acids, and chelated minerals, meaning that the minerals are attached to an amino acid or other organic component so that it it digested properly and therefore more effective.
Linoleic acid is the first ingredient and is one of two essential fatty acids that dogs must ingest for good health. It is necessary for many biological processes, but cannot be derived from other food components. A lack of Linoleic acid and other fatty acids in the diet can cause symptoms such as dry hair, hair loss, and poor wound healing. Dermatitis is one of the first signs of a deficiency in dogs.
Calcium is required not only for bone health and development, but also to ensure the proper function of muscles and nerves. This supplement is beneficial for dogs of all ages. Puppies needs the proper amount of calcium as their bones develop, as do adult dogs as a preventative measure against bone loss that naturally occurs with age. Older dogs need extra calcium because, as they get older, bone breakdown exceeds formation, and can result in bone loss if their diet is low in calcium. There may not be enough calcium available in the blood to be returned to the bones to maintain strong bones.
Second only to calcium, phosphorus is the most abundant mineral in the body. Calcium ans phosphorous work together to build strong bones and teeth. Most of the phosphorus in the body is found in the bones and teeth, but it is also present, and necessary, in cells and tissues throughout the body. Phosphorus is utilized in many ways. It helps to filter out waste in the kidneys and also plays an essential role in the storage and use of energy. It is needed for the growth, maintenance, and repair of all cells and tissues, it is also used in the production of the genetic building blocks, DNA and RNA. Another reason it is so important to the formula is that it is necessary for the balance and use other vitamins and minerals.
