Upcoming research will assess the relationship between vitamin D levels and health outcomes in dogs that have had surgery to repair damage to their knee ligaments. The study will assess the relationship between vitamin D status prior to surgery and outcomes associated with recovery. In addition, the researchers will evaluate whether dogs can produce vitamin D in their skin from sun exposure.

BBC news covered the research plans in a recent article. Click here to take a look.

    Very nice. I give my Bailey 5,000 iu D3 daily, plus K2, boron, magnesium and zinc. Additionally, Bailey gets a high potency Krill Oil supplement every day. If only more people were as fortunate as Bailey.

      That’s great to hear. Bailey is one lucky pup!
