Minerals in Dog Food.
Minerals are main structural components of the body’s organs and tissues, body fluids and electrolytes, and muscle contractions. They are involved in enzyme and hormone systems.
There are two kinds of minerals: macro-minerals and trace minerals. Both have daily requirements for dogs, but in different amounts.
Minerals help with many functions of a dog’s body and support structures. Without a completely balanced mineral profile, many biological systems will stop functioning, which can lead to serious medical conditions and even death.
