Vitamin D and Vitamin D3
Vitamin D is essential for the metabolism of calcium, phosphorus and for proper development.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble (fat-soluble) vitamin that the skin synthesizes when exposed to sunlight and / or through proper supplementation. It positively affects the mood and well-being as well as the health of the bones and joints.
Lack of calcium in the diet can lead to rickets, changes in the growth plate or bow legs.
When our pets are older, they can suffer from diseases that cause hypocalcemia (low amount of calcium in the blood); or if diets do not include enough calcium it can cause bone decalcification and cause your bones to be weaker and break frequently. But be careful, because if we supply more calcium than they require, we can cause excessive calcification in the soft tissues, especially in the kidney, and they can also present deformities.
