Benefits Of Vitamin B1 For Dogs

by | May 16, 2020 | Texas Pet Blog, Dog Health, Ingredients

Dogs benefit from vitamins similar to the way humans do.

Vitamin B1 is beneficial to dogs and it is essential to their diet as it helps stimulate and maintain healthy growth. Also known as thiamine, Vitamin B1, Thiamine, is found naturally in some foods like meats, fish, and whole grains. Because thiamine is water-soluble, it is very safe and there is little concern of overdose from too much thiamine.  Excess levels will be excreted in the urine.

Pet supplements are a great, safe way to ensure your dog is getting Vitamin B1 in the recommended dose. The amount of any supplement you give your dog will depend on age, weight, size, and health. Generally speaking, large dogs or dogs with illnesses will require larger amounts of Vitamin B1 for their well-being. Consult your veterinarian to determine optimal amounts for your pet.

The brain and other high energy organs in dogs require Vitamin B1 thiamine for proper function because it is used for carbohydrate break-down and metabolism, which means it is an essential part of your dog’s diet in order to maintain optimal health.

Once digested, this carbohydrate is converted to energy in the form of Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP). This is the dog’s energy reservoir needed during exercising.

Vitamin B1 promotes good eyesight in dogs. A dog’s visual acuity benefits from a boost allowing better sight, day or night.
