Senior multi vitamin
So we just went over nutrition in my vet assistant class last night. Well I learned about the certain things that are important in puppies and seniors which is why we have puppy specific foods and senior specific foods. Well Callie is on a priscription diet that doesn't come in the different life stages so I am looking for a good senior dog multi vitamin, it needs to have calcium, zinc, copper, and fatty acids. She is on a joint supplement that I am happy with so it doesn't have to include something for the joints. It also has to be a chew. A powder is not going to work.

Callie Mae, you will forever be in my heart!

Most senior vitamins have supplements for joints, but you already give that to Callie. I don't know of a good senior multivitamins. I like Nature's Farmacy Ultimate. I know you said a powder wouldn't work, but their formulas are usually tasty. I'd be happy to send you some to try to see if Callie likes it. You can compare the ingredients with senior formulas, but I really trust Nature's Farmacy. It has some calcium, but most multivitamins have little calcium. I have some of their calcium also if you want to try it.

Looking forward to getting all the good information from your vet tech classes
I know that my breeder friends all like the Natures Farmacy products.
And I hear zinc is really important, and I have wondered about added calcium.
Great info! Thanks.
