    A complete multi-vitamin and mineral formula for dogs of all ages!

    Canine Basic Nutrients is intended for use in all phases of a dog's life. It provides a broad range of nutrients‚ in a palatable form‚ to meet canine needs. With modern processed food and pollution of our food‚ water‚ and environment‚ it is difficult to know whether dogs are getting all the basic nutrients needed for optimal health. By supplying your patients with these formulas early in their life‚ or before they become ill‚ you can enhance the quality and length of their lives.

    The macrominerals (calcium‚ magnesium‚ and potassium) are provided as well-absorbed citrate-malate chelates. The trace minerals (zinc‚ copper‚ iron) are supplied in the highly bioavailable bisglycinate chelates. Chromium is supplied as Thorne Research's patented Ultrachrome®. Vitamins B2‚ B6‚ B12‚ and folate are provided in their active‚ tissue-ready forms (riboflavin 5'-phosphate‚ pyridoxyl 5'-phosphate‚ methylcobalamin‚ and 5-methyltetrahydrofolate‚ respectively).

    This formula can be combined with other ThorneVET products that support specific systems as indicated.

    Product Highlights:
    - Optimize canine health and vitality.
    - Enhance quality of life.
    - Vitamins and minerals in their most highly-absorbable forms.
    - For all phases of a dog's life.

    Thorne Canine Basic Nutrients

    from Lincoln, CA on 9/03/2015
    I used this item years ago when it was recommended by my holistic veterinarian in Reno, NV. I stopped using this item and switched to Nupro. Lately, I have been concerned that one of my dogs might have a reaction to the yeast in Nupro, as he has allergies. I was searching for a vitamin supplement and remembered Canine Basic Nutrients by Thorne Research that I used in the past. I am now using Canine Basic Nutrients for my three Cocker Spaniels with great success.


    Ease of administration.


    I don't dislike anything about this item.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
  • Super fast dellivery.

    from Kauai on 8/25/2015
    I live in the Hawaiian Islands and this was the quickest I have ever received any product.


    Canine Base Nutrients by Thorne Research makes my dogs coat shiny and I can be sure she is getting what she needs in her diet.


    The pills are difficult for my dog to swallow. I have to either use the Pill Pockets (which are expensive) or apply a ton of peanut butter on the pills. Otherwise, I wet the pill and put it down her throat (which I refuse to do). If I hide it in her food, she just spits it out.
    I would recommend this item to a friend.
