Nowadays, many people eat dietary supplements or vitamins. Then they gradually took them to their pets. But most pet owners do this because they want it, not because of animals need for vitamin additives. In fact, not many people can answer the question of what effects vitamin supplements have on animals. This article will focus on the benefits of vitamin supplements on animals and describe the relevant information.

This article contains the following:

  • Definition of vitamins

  • The function of Vitamin Additives

  • Matters needing attention


1、Definition of vitamins

Vitamins are a group of low molecular organic compounds with different chemical structure, different nutritional function and physiological function. the content of vitamins in animal diet is about 5/10000, which is much less than other nutrients. Vitamin is neither the source of energy nor the structural substance of body tissue and organ, but it is indispensable to the normal life activity of animals. A small amount of vitamin can maintain the normal metabolism, growth and development, reproduction, resistance to epidemic disease and normal survival.

2、The function of Vitamin Additives

It has now been found that there are 13 vitamins in the daily grain of the animal, and the absence of any one causes an abnormality in the animal, such as slow growth, decreased productivity, reduced disease resistance, and even death. The deficiency of the vitamins, often accompanied by comprehensive symptoms, is not easy to determine which type of vitamin is lacking, therefore, a sufficient amount of various vitamins can be supplemented according to the standard in the animal daily ration, and various adverse factors which can destroy the vitamins can be eliminated, and the vitamin deficiency can be avoided.

Animal demand for vitamins is very small, but its role is very important, mainly to maintain the normal metabolic needs of animal bodies. Among them, VA,VD,VE,VK is fat-soluble vitamin, VB and VC are water-soluble vitamin. 

  • Vitamin A

Vitamin A is mainly used to regulate the metabolism of carbohydrates, proteins and fat, and has the function of protecting skin and mucous membrane. 

  • Vitamin D

The effect of Vitamin D is mainly to regulate the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus in animals. 

  • Vitamin E

Vitamin E mainly promotes the development of gonad and reproductive function.

  • Vitamin K

Vitamin K can promote blood coagulation, participate in bone metabolism, and play an important role in the growth and development of animals.

  • Vitamin B

 Vitamin B can improve the utilization rate of vegetable protein and prevent fatty liver. Vitamin B 2 can improve the utilization rate of plant protein and choline can prevent fatty liver.

  • Vitamin C

Vitamin C can increase the resistance to disease infection and reduce the stress response of the body.

3、Matters needing attention

Vitamin additives have a variety of benefits, but their dosage also requires special attention. Excessive use, not only can not bring benefits, but may bring some harm. If an animal has eaten a balanced diet and took too many vitamins. Then they may cause harm to animals. This is because too much calcium can cause bone problems, especially in large breeds of animals; too much vitamin A can damage blood vessels, lead to dehydration and joint pain. Excessive vitamin D causes animals to stop eating, causing bone damage and eventually muscle atrophy.


The positive effect of vitamin additives on animals is indispensable. Therefore, we should pay more attention to the influence of vitamin additives on animals. Perhaps in the future, vitamin additives will become more and more widely known, and people will be well aware of its benefits to animals before they use it.
