Whole Food Supplements
The food our dogs eat plays an integral role in their health. Although you may be happy with the food that your dog is eating, you also want your canine companions to get ALL of the nutrition they need. And that's not always possible. Including a supplement will give you the comfort of knowing that your pooch's diet is complete, with all the necessary vitamins and minerals they need to have a healthy, happy life.
The Healthy Barker's Whole Food Supplement can give you that! We have worked with renowned Pet Nutritionist, Dr Susan Lauten, to develop a healthy formula that contains all of the necessary daily vitamins and minerals your dog needs. Our carefully formulated recipe is packed full of certified organic, concentrated whole foods.
Did you know that conventional vitamins are synthesized from ingredients such as crude oil and coal? Taking these isolated nutrients is more like taking a drug than eating a food. The body treats them like foreign substances. Thats' just not good for your dog and can contribute to all sorts of health issues.
Because the ingredients in our Whole Food Supplement are made from concentrated whole foods, they work in your dog's system synergistically, like "REAL FOOD", to offer a combined effect for maximum digestion and absorption.
