Boreal Nutraceuticals Palatable Zinc Supplement for Dogs. Zinc serves two broad functions in the body: enzyme function and protein synthesis. Dogs need zinc for healthy coats and for normal pigmentation of the coat hair. Some dogs do not absorb enough zinc, and can benefit greatly from a good quality supplement. If your dog suffers form skin irritations and scratching, this could be a sign of zinc deficiency. Dog’s that eat a premium quality food, but still have problems with skin and coat, should try a zinc supplement to see if there is a deficiency.
This Zinc supplement contains ZINPRO® from Zinpro Performance Minerals®, a patented organic source of zinc for animals, made by linking the amino acid methionine with zinc to form a structure that can be absorbed directly into the bloodstream.
ZINPRO® (zinc methionine complex) is a nutritional food ingredient for animals that contains organic zinc. The trace mineral zinc is required by animals for numerous functions including: immunity, reproduction, skin, coat and nail integrity, muscle development, milk production.
