Comments about Canine Minerals
I have been using this product for almost two years. I began using it after my standard poodle had several surgeries on his hind leg, to strengthen his bones. I noticed immediate changes in both my poodles' skin and hair. Several cysts disappeared almost immediately, and their hair became very soft and shiny. I give them a scoop of the powder in their food every morning. I also recommended this supplement to a friend of mine whose 12-year-old dog had a recurring hot spot on his hip. The hotspot went away within 3 days and has not come back. I love this product.
Comments about Canine Minerals
I add this to my dogs cooked food as a supplement since taking her off all store bought kibble and canned food. Supplementation is necessary when switching your dog over towards raw eating. I add directly on top of her food per package directions, splitting the dose in half since she eats twice a day. Excellent product to ensure she's getting the minerals she needs. Highly recommended by my vet.
