Beyond the Bones: Calcium, Phosphorus, and Vitamin D in Dogs and Cats

Calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D are essential for organ, cell, and tissue function. They are not only important for bone health but also for kidney health, urinary tract disease, and other organs. It is crucial to ensure adequate intake of these nutrients and consider their interactions.

Calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D are very important for dogs and cats. They need these nutrients for a healthy diet. Most dog and cat foods you buy have the right amounts of these nutrients. But, homemade pet foods might not have enough of them or might not have them in the right balance, which can be bad for your pet's health.

These nutrients are mostly found in bones, but they are also in other parts of the body. Vitamin D, along with calcium and phosphorus, helps manage bone health and how these minerals are absorbed and kept in the body. These nutrients are key not only for strong bones but also for the overall health of dogs and cats. We'll discuss more about how calcium, phosphorus, and vitamin D are important for the health of these animals.
