There are 2 types of vitamins: water-soluble and fat-soluble. Your dog needs both. B and C are water- soluble. ( B & C) This means any excess is filtered through the kidneys and urinated out after ingestion. Because of this, they must be present in every meal. C is needed for healthy teeth and gums. B is needed for energy, breaking down protein and promoting biochemical reactions in the body. Vitamins A, D, E and K are fat-soluble, meaning they are stored in the fatty tissue of the body and the liver and so do not need to be consumed at every meal.
Minerals are needed for the correct composition of body fluids, proper formation of blood and bones, promotion of a healthy nervous system and to act as co-enzymes with vitamins. ( Activator / Unleash) Dogs cannot create their own minerals; you must add them to the food. All these vitamins and minerals are found in Viand in the proper concentrations, and even more so, in raw foods.
