Bone Health For Pets
Pets are so much like their human companions in so many ways; it is surprising for many of us. As with pregnant or older human adults, calcium and bones are a decided concern. When pregnant, the babies will sometimes pull the needed calcium from their mother’s bones. (The things we do for our babies!) It is therefore important to ensure that your expecting pet is getting the needed calcium when pregnant, so that they do not have bone problems later in life.
Bone fragility is a big problem for older pets as well. Indeed, it can be a very painful problem for some pets, so a proper diet before they reach their senior years is vitally important to make sure that they live a healthy, happy and fit life throughout all of their years. Your veterinarian will be able to help you decide on the proper diet for your pet, and PetAg offers Calcium Phosphorous supplements that can help strengthen your pet’s bones.
Ironically, many pet parents are not aware of how important bone health is for their pets. At times, it might seem a bit like, out of sight out of mind, however, poor bone health can have a domino effect on the overall health of your pet. Some things to look out for when considering your pet’s bone health are pain when walking, or not wanting to walk at all, limping, or preferring one leg to the others, among other symptoms.
Believe it or not, in addition to making sure that your pet has sufficient calcium in their diet, exercise is also a very good way to strengthen your pet’s bones. And note if your pet is one of the pre-disposed breeds for bone health issues such as osteoporosis, or arthritis. Making sure that you are aware and proactive is one of the best prevention medicines around.
At PetAg, our goal is to be your partner in ensuring that your pet is happy, healthy and fit throughout their life, and as such, we make it our business to bring products to the market that help you achieve that goal.
