Dietary supplements are meant to fill gaps in nutrition and provide nutrients extracted from food or manufactured synthetically. Vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, fiber, and amino acids fall into this category, and some typical dietary supplements prescribed by Dr. Pope include Vitamin D, probiotics, melatonin, and fish oils. Dr. Pope has access to and prescribes top quality; the physician only brands to ensure her patients receive the best products without concern for quality assurance, contamination, or adulteration. Since the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) does not regulate the labeling of dietary supplements, over the counter products often contain fillers, heavy metals, hormones, and other contaminants instead of the actual ingredient you are hoping to use to try and help heal your pet. A full evaluation by Dr. Pope to determine which dietary supplements are best for your companion, as well as help navigating the abundance of brands and products, will help to determine exactly what is needed and best for your pet.
