Vitamin B + Iron Supplements Q & A

Q: Do I need to provide my pet with a Vitamin B and Iron supplement?

A: Supplementing your dog or cat with a Vitamin B and Iron supplement can be beneficial for pets that need these additional nutrients during critical situations. Pets that are anemic (either due to heavy blood loss, parasitic infestation such as fleas or hookworms, etc.) are ideal candidates to administer this type of supplement. In addition, pets recovering from stress, surgery, illness or injury would benefit from additional Vitamin B and Iron as would debilitated or convalescing pets. In general, there are definite situations when pets will benefit from this type of supplement, so it is always a good product to have ready for use with your pets when it is needed.



Q: What is the difference between the various brands of supplements and which is the best for my pet?

A: To compare brands of Vitamin B and Iron supplements, you need to read the product label listing the ingredients to determine what is being delivered by each brand. There can be significant differences in the amount of active ingredients provided per dose and even what the dosage amount would be per pound of body weight. Doc Roy’s Liquid B + Iron delivers 2x more iron and 2.7x more B-vitamins per dose compared to other brands, so Doc Roy’s brand is an excellent value. In addition, Doc Roy’s brand uses a proprietary flavoring to make the liquid palatable to dogs and cats and is safe to use even with food allergy pets. Doc Roy’s Liquid B + Iron is the best brand for your pet.
