Why does my dog need a vitamin mineral supplement?
It’s simple – dog food processing methods destroy or damage essential vitamins and minerals. So one of the last steps of commercial kibble production is the replacement of those vitamins and minerals. However, as the food is stored, these vitamins can “break down,” or become unavailable due to fat degradation or other decomposition. Considering that most dog owners dump dry dog food into a plastic bin, where it stays for a month (or more!) until used up, loss of vitamins and breakdown of the food is inevitable. Exposure to air from poor fitting lids, temperature variations, and leeching of fat from the kibble to the plastic will also result in vitamin and mineral loss.
Many owners switch to a home prepared or raw diet to provide their dog with higher quality nutrition. (After all, commercial dry dog foods are not made from human quality ingredients.) In a perfect world, all of the needed vitamins and minerals would come from the food. However, our soils have been depleted of up to 85% of their natural minerals. Acid rain further inhibits plants’ ability to absorb minerals from the soils. And artificial fertilizers accelerate growth, denying plants time to become fully mature and nutrient rich. When these plants are fed to food animals, the cycle of nutrient lack is perpetuated. And of course, livestock not raised organically are given growth enhancers, which means they grow to market size without necessarily becoming as nutrient dense as they could be if raised on better food at a slower rate of growth.

Paw Power users are saying…
“We have been using Paw Power supplements on our three dogs since I learned about them from Dr. Coger at a seminar she presented to our dog club earlier this year. We feed our dogs a raw diet, and they do very well on it. But I have always wondered if they might be missing some vital nutrients, so giving them a supplement seemed like a good idea. I am so glad we tried Paw Power!
The dogs have wonderful coats, their eyes are bright, they don’t have any digestive issues and they have tons of energy! My Sheltie whelped a litter of 3 puppies 7 weeks ago, and took the supplements throughout her pregnancy. I truly think they helped keep her healthy and energized throughout. The thing I really like about Paw Power supplements is that they are made in America, from pasture fed, pesticide free beef. These days it seems like so many products are imported from other countries, where manufacturing methods are always in question. Thank you Dr. Coger for introducing us to this wonderful product!”
