Are you new to the puppy world? Puppy’s diets are very sensitive and can easily affect their future health and well-being. During the puppy stage your pet is developing mentally and physically, so it is important to make sure they receive the proper nutrients.
One of the most essential components of your puppy’s diet should involve trace minerals. Trace minerals are necessary for growth and are important for proper immune system function, especially in puppies. Additionally, they benefit your pet’s energy and metabolism.
A common misconception is that trace minerals are regular minerals such as calcium, phosphorus, magnesium and copper. This is incorrect as these are macro (large) minerals. Trace minerals, known as micro (small) minerals, are found in tiny amounts in the soil and the sea. To be sure your pet food has trace minerals in it, look for words such as: kelp, barley, wheat grass or seaweed. The Precise formulas, including Precise Plus and Precise Holistic Complete, use dried kelp to make sure your pet gets the necessary amount of trace minerals daily.
