RxVitamins RxD3 is a liquid formula, provided in a dropper bottle, that contains Vitamin D3, considered by most to be the more active form than Vitamin D2. Vitamin D3 has been found in dogs and cats to have a variety of benefits, including influencing serum calcium levels and reducing cancer risk. Unlike people, dogs and cats do not convert vitamin D in their skin following exposure to ultraviolet light. For that reason they are completely dependent upon dietary sources or supplement sources of Vitamin D3.
RxD3 can be used to increase blood levels of Vitamin D3 for health and wellness when serum levels are measured in the low and low normal range by the VDI Labs Spot test.
Vitamin D3 is a very powerful vitamin supplement and has the potential to be toxic when given too frequently or in too large an amount over time. Without having a baseline serum Vitamin D level determination with the VDI Labs test kit, it may not be safe to supplement with RxD3. It is recommended that in 10 weeks you retest your pet's Vitamin D levels to be certain they are in the recommended healthy range.
The National Research Council (NRC) has established a safe daily level of supplementation in the dog of 22 IU/kg of body weight daily (11 IU/pound of body weight daily), but it is best to determine the baseline serum vitamin D levels, because each dog or cat's diet provides different amounts of vitamin D to contribute to their baseline level measurement.
NOTE: This is a veterinary specific formula containing 100 IU per drop, and 3000 IU per milliliter.
WHY SUPPLEMENTS FOR YOUR PET?
Just as you take vitamins to help you live a more healthy life, so too will your pet benefit from supplementing with the right herbal and nutritional products.
This is no substitute for a complete and balanced diet, but so many foods these days are overly processed. A little dietary supplement might just add that extra push your pet needs to be its best.
Feel comfortable that the supplements you find at the Well-Pet Dispensary will always be of the highest standards of quality and value.
