The history of Fido-Vite started years ago. I have been a veterinarian for over 50 years. During those years I have had a great interest and involvement in nutrition and how it supports the health and well-being of the animal. I was convinced that supplementing could offer health supporting benefits to many commercial diets.
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.
Doctor’s Choice Supplements developed the line of Fido-Vite supplements to support the nutritional needs of dogs. All dog food kibble is intended to be complete and balanced and nutritionally adequate as long as feeding directions are followed, but dogs require actual amounts of nutrients, not percentages. If directions are not followed and food is restricted, supplementation may be beneficial. Fido-Vite products are an excellent complement to raw food and or kibble diets. Backed up with solid research all Fido-Vite products come in a palatable powder form so all the digestive enzymes, B-vitamins and probiotics along with added prebiotics are available to nutritionally support a dog’s health. With the history I have seen, and 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 Supplements, we say “Improving Health… From the Inside Out”.
I have enjoyed seeing the overall health benefits in clients’ dogs using the Fido-Vite products, as well as my own Labrador Retrievers and Welsh Corgi dogs that my wife Wendy and I enjoy raising.
