Pet-Tabs Reviews

By - Reviewed by CHD Team

Introduction

Pet-Tabs, manufactured by Zoetis (a worldwide animal health company with over sixty years of experience) is hailed as the most popular vet-recommended multivitamin for dogs.

It is meant to work as a dietary supplement for dogs who are suffering from nutritional deficiencies. Those deficiencies may stem from a loss of appetite or lack of nutrition in the dog’s regular diet.

Working Process

Pet Tabs
Pet Tabs – Dog Joint Supplement

Pet-Tabs is made up of eighteen essential ingredients-eight vitamins and ten minerals-that work along with natural acids to make sure your pet is receiving all the nutrients it needs.

The supplement comes in tablet form. You can give the tablet to your dog by hand right before feeding, or you can crumble the tablet over your dog’s food. Just make sure your dog actually ingests the whole tablet in order to obtain the full effects.

That shouldn’t be all that difficult as the tablet is meat-flavored, and Zoetis claims it is very appealing to dogs.

They are also soft and thus easy to chew. Zoetis also claims that Pet-Tabs meet and even exceed the canine vitamin and mineral supplementation industry standard.

A: Similar products include Pet Pain-Away, Springtime and TerraMax Pro.

Final Verdict

Pet-Tabs have an official website through Zoetis, but the site does not provide much information.

While Zoetis boasts positive claims of popularity and effectiveness, no evidence to back these claims are readily supplied.
