Many of us take daily supplements to make sure we get enough essential nutrients and to improve our overall health.


Whether you reach for vitamin C when you're feeling under the weather or take daily fish oil to improve your joints, there's evidence to suggest that supplements can enhance our health in many ways.


So why wouldn't you do the same for your dog ?


A series of healthy dogs jumping

We want our dogs to be as healthy as possible, to live long, full, adventurous lives by our side.


According to Mintel, the World’s Leading Market Intelligence Agency, pet health priorities are evolving and increasingly, pet owners are turning to supplements for added nutritional benefits.


If your dog is healthy and on a complete and balanced diet, they're unlikely to need any supplements because their diet will have everything that they need to survive and thrive.


However, dogs can suffer from a whole range of health issues including skin & coat, anxiety, joint pain and gastrointestinal problems that supplements could help to alleviate.


We take a closer look at some innovative UK companies offering a wide range of natural health supplements for your dog.

One of their hero products is Super Tummy Instant. With rave customer reviews, it's a veterinary-strength poop support which helps to provide relief from upset tummies and diarrhoea. Oh! and if you're in a rush, Buddy & Lola offer next day delivery for any orders over £30 placed before 5pm.

Dogs Lounge Scooter - dog anal gland supplement

Our Verdict


All four brands featured in our review offer 100% natural solutions.


First consider which delivery method you think will be most palatable for your dog whether that’s tablets, liquid, powder or treats. Pets Purest, Buddy & Lola and Dog's Lounge offer the widest choice of supplements and delivery methods.


If you have a picky pup then can we suggest trying tasty chews. Although they often work out slightly more expensive, they certainly take all the hassle out of giving your dog a nutritional supplement.


Two dogs of different sizes

Lastly, we found that there appears to be an enormous range of prices when looking at supplements for dogs.


When considering pricing, bear in mind the quantity of product purchased (obviously the larger amounts work out cheaper per dose) and the size of your dog as larger breeds will need significantly higher daily doses.


It's definitely worth doing the maths specifically for your dog, before making a decision.
