What is the best vitamin supplement for dogs?
I have 4 small healthy dogs ages 3, 6, 10 and 11. I am also getting a puppy of a large breed. They all eat (daily) chicken and rice with fresh vegetables, all organic. Can you recommend a general vitamin that I can give them?

My elderly cat needs to gain weight. He was having trouble keeping his food down. But now he is on cerenia and his appetite has improved. He is keeping his food down, most of the time. However, he is still too thin. He really isn’t gaining any of his weight back. I can feel his bones when I pet him. Any ideas on how to fatten him up a bit? I have been feeding him as much can food as he wants. Dry food is always available in a continuous feeder.
He will be 15 in Jan. TC is a Maine Coon who use to be a healthy 18 lbs. He now weighs 13 lbs.
My Lab, Zeus, is 12 years old. He is walking slower now and sometimes has a hard time climbing stairs. He still enjoys going for walks and still takes laps in our pool. What vitamin or medication would help his walking?
I have a four year old cat who ate dry & wet food.Now he hardly eats the wet food. I have tried all kinds & flavors of the wet food but he mostly just eats dry…I have him on a premium “lite”, he needs to lose a few pounds. He seems healthy…does all normal cat things, plays with our other cat etc.Is it bad for cats to just eat dry food?
I have a rescued feral Turkish Angora cat who spent first 5 weeks in bathroom, fed wet food only. After six months, now very affectionate with me, still gobbles food; when I have tried dried food, swallows kibbles whole, so I only give him occasional soft treats which I break up and feed him from my hand. Still can’t pick him up, and he hides when anyone comes, but he’s gradually beoming more socialized.
My question is – is it OK to just feed him wet food (I vary IAMS, WELLNESS, etc) or if dry food could be added between meals, OK to swallow whole?
I am having alkaline water from the Carlsbad Spas artesian wells delivered to my home. Is it OK to give this water to my cats as well?
Also wondering about using it in the hummingbird feeder. I hate to allow any living thing to consume the San Diego tap water.
