Dr Shawn’s Favorite Supplements for Pets

My basic starting supplements for all of my patients is a product called Vim & Vigor made by Pet Togethers. In addition to the vitamins and minerals your pet requires, it contains colostrum (to support the immune system,) coenzyme Q-10 (a potent antioxidant that also supports the immune system and supports healthy teeth and gums, the heart, and is one of many supplements useful in treating cancer,) enzymes such as amylase/protease/cellulase that improve your pet’s digestion and absorption of nutrients from the diet, glucosamine (necessary to support normal joint and connective tissue function,) Siberian ginseng (which helps your pet adapt to various stressors,) and L-tryptophan (an amino acid included in the PM formula which helps ensure restful sleep.) The Vim & Vigor formula is my basic supplement for most pets; other therapies are added on top of this depending upon your pet’s needs.
