But most dogs don’t need additional vitamin supplements outside of what you’re already feeding them. The vitamins the average pet needs will be found in the right proportions in commercially prepared food labeled “complete” or “balanced” and with the seal “Meets the nutritional requirements of dogs established by the American Association of Feed Control Officials (AAFCO).”If your dog follows a home-prepared diet, you’ll want to seek the help of a veterinarian or board certified veterinary nutritionist to ensure your pooch is getting the necessary vitamins. Extra supplements should only be administered with the guidance of a veterinarian as too many vitamins or too much of a given vitamin can be detrimental.
