Vitamin D is essential for the metabolism of calcium and phosphorus and for proper development.
Vitamin D3 is a fat-soluble (fat-soluble) vitamin that the skin synthesizes when exposed to sunlight and/or through correct supplementation. It positively affects mood and well-being as well as bone and joint health.
Lack of calcium in the diet can lead to rickets, changes in the growth cartilage or bowed legs.
When our pets are older, they can suffer from diseases that cause hypocalcemia (little amount of calcium in the blood); or if diets do not include enough calcium they can cause bone decalcification and cause your bones to be weaker and fracture frequently. But be careful, because if we supply more calcium than they require, we can cause excessive calcification in the soft tissues, especially in the kidney, and they can also present deformities.
