Nurti-Cal is such a supplement. I first found out about Nutri-Cal while fostering 2, 2 week old Rottweilers who were very ill and needed to be fed via bottle. The other folks in rescue suggested that I try Nurti-Cal to help these pups get the nutritional support they needed and they all swore that this is a miracle product. I tried it and was absolutely amazed at how well the puppies responded to the Nurti-Cal and immediately purchased several more tubes to keep in my arsenal. I have used it with older dogs too in a pinch when I couldn't readily get the adult dog version. This is also a great product to help put some needed weight on dogs or to help nurse along a sick dog to ensure they are getting the nutrients they need. Unfortunately, the place where I used to purchase Nutri-Cal stopped carrying it and replaced it with a more expensive but nutritionally similar product. I purchased that product and the puppy I was fostering at the time wouldn't even touch it, nor would any of my dogs. If you knew my dogs, you would know that it must be pretty awful tasting if they wouldn't touch it! I was so pleased to find this product on Amazon and immediately ordered several tubes. It keeps for a long time so stocking up isn't a problem.
Is this really a miracle product? All I can say is that I have seen amazing results when using this with sick and malnourished dogs and that it is now my "go to" supplement when a new foster dog arrives at my home. This is an all-around great nutritional supplement that dogs love the taste of. I highly recommend it, especially if you are involved in foster or rescue work.
The Vet warned us that these things are pure sugar, compare to giving kids candy (no wonder he loves the taste). We did noticed that he would get extra hyper after each supplement dose.
So, just with everything else, as long as you keep the dose low and "as needed" then your dog should be fine. So far our little friend has done quite well on every check up.
Our puppy LOVES the taste of this. When we tell her it is time for bed, she willingly goes right into her crate and waits for us to give her some. We have never had any trouble getting her to eat this. She acts like it is a treat when we show her the tube.
I can't say necessarily that our puppy absolutely needs to have this but as I said above, we use it to supplement what she already eats to give us a little more piece of mind. With her being as active as she is, I don't think it hurts to give her some extra nutrients in her diet.
I would recommend this to anyone who is looking for a supplement for their dog's diet.
