Does your dog lack essential vitamins & minerals in the diet?
The symptoms of a lack of vitamins and minerals in your dog’s diet can be many and varied from hair loss and skin problems to allergies. A dog with a deficiency in essential fatty acids may develop a dull coat and skin issues. A dog with an insufficient amount of zinc can experience bald spots and skin ulcers. The skin will also become thick and crack. These symptoms are usually temporary and go away with an adequate intake of these nutrients in your pet’s diet.
You can also tell if your dog is missing essential nutrients by paying attention to his poop. The stool should be soft and dark brown in colour, with no blood or mucus. Anything off-target will signal a nutrient deficiency.
It’s no secret that processed foods are often devoid of the vitamins and minerals our dogs need to stay healthy. The same is true for the nutrients present in most raw diets. This deficiency can often lead to health problems in our canine companions. For example, dogs who eat a processed diet are prone to developing vitamin A and D deficiencies. These deficiencies can cause a wide range of health problems, including eye problems, skin problems, and even seizures.
Similarly, dogs who eat a raw diet may develop mineral deficiencies if their diet is not carefully balanced. For example, a lack of calcium can lead to bone problems down the road. And a lack of magnesium can lead to muscle cramps and other health issues.

Nutritional deficiencies are hard to tell, especially if your dog looks just fine and healthy. But long term deficiencies that have not been addressed can greatly affect your dog, leading to more serious health concerns.
