Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is naturally present in a range of foodstuffs
and is absorbed naturally by healthy dogs following a normal diet.
It is necessary for a strong immune system and for connecting tissues, muscles, ligaments
and tendons around the body. It is an essential vitamin for a dog’s general well-being
and is required daily.
Vitamin C is essential for a strong immune system and to fight against viral and
bacterial infections. It stimulates the production of protein molecules which are
essential in the production of red blood cells as well as adrenaline.
There are many benefits from supplementing a dog’s diet with vitamin C in particular
including staving off infections and assisting with pain relief (most often noted
in the treatment of hip dysplasia).
Barker and Wags LeapDOG combines vitamin C with glucosamine, chondroitin and several
other active ingredients to promote healthy joints, skin and bones. It is delivered
into your dog’s body via a healthy oats-based complementary food which aids digestion
and absorption into the body.
