When the ancestors of the modern day dog were in the wild, they would kill an animal and eat the digestive tract contents. This is where the dog received its vegetables, B vitamins, probiotics and digestive enzymes. Modern day commercially processed dog food is extruded to add palatability and stability, but it is the heat of the extrusion process (the making of kibble) that destroys those same B-vitamins, probiotics and digestive enzymes. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist or even a veterinarian like me to realize there are benefits to supplementation.
Doctor’s Choice developed Fido-Vite because there was no product on the market that fit the needs to deal with the nutrition problems I was seeing. Fido-Vite is an excellent complement to raw food or barf diets. Fido-Vite comes in a palatable meal form so all the enzymes, B-vitamins and probiotics added to the product are available to nutritionally support a dog’s health. No matter how good a product looks, it can’t help the dog if they won’t consume it. Being a veterinarian, I can’t stress enough the importance of intestinal health to the overall health of the dog. That’s why at Doctor’s Choice, we say “Improving Health… From the Inside Out”.
I have enjoyed seeing the overall health benefits in other peoples dogs using Fido-Vite , as well as my own Labrador Retrievers and Corgi dogs that my wife Wendy, daughter Nicole and I enjoy raising.
