B vitamins are essential for the proper functioning of the body of our dogs. But let's see them one by one:
Vitamin B1: Vitamin B1 is essential for the metabolic transformation of food into energy. Lack of this vitamin can lead to substantial weight loss.
Vitamin B2: Vitamin B is important for the formation of mucous membranes and muscles in dogs, as well as for cell development.
Vitamin B3: usually the deficiency of this vitamin manifests itself with episodes of excessive fatigue. In fact, this vitamin helps the dog in moments of hyperactivity or sports performance by counteracting fatigue.
Vitamin B5: important for the correct energy intake from food and to promote mental performance.
Vitamin B6: Dogs are rarely deficient in vitamin B6 and the symptoms could be diarrhea and fatigue. This vitamin serves for the synthesis of hemoglobin, globulin and serotonin.
Vitamin B9: used for the formation of blood and amino acid chains.
Vitamin B12: Vitamin B12 is present in meat, so unless your dog is a vegetarian this vitamin, essential for the formation of red blood cells and for the proper functioning of the central nervous system, will not be lacking in your dog.
