Annimally Multi Vital Powder gives your dog the vitamin power he needs to stay healthy. The purely natural ingredients provide your dog with all the necessary vitamins. Find out now!
- VITAMIN SUPPLY: The Multi Vital powder gives your dog the vitamin power he needs to stay healthy and alert.
- HIGH VALUE CONTENTS: Raw materials such as barley grass, spirulina and açaí fruit provide vitamin B, C and important minerals. Omega-3 fatty acids are also contained in the powder.
- LESS IS MORE: We always limit ourselves to a few, but particularly high-quality ingredients with high bioavailability.
- SCIENTIFICALLY BASED: Veterinarians and scientists were involved in the development of the Multi Vital powder. Additional analyses inform you about the contained vitamins, minerals & omega-3 fatty acids.
- MADE IN GERMANY: From development to acceptance in the laboratory - environmental protection is important to us, everything takes place in Germany.
Every dog deserves a long and healthy dog life full of play, fun and love. For this our beloved four-legged friends need a strong immune system. One that can withstand all that sniffing and sometimes even unauthorised nibbling. An immune system that can cope with cold and heat and knows how to fight bacteria, viruses and co.
For this to be possible, a dog's body also needs sufficient vitamins and minerals. Therefore, it makes sense to give your pelt-nose high-quality food supplements in addition to normal food. Older dogs, for example, tend to have a slower metabolism and are often less vital than younger dogs. Our Multi Vital Powder is also just right here.
Vitamins & minerals for your dog
Barley grass, spirulina algae, acai fruit and acerola, these are vitamin-rich "superfoods". But why should only we humans benefit from them? Your dog will also benefit from the vitamins and minerals contained in them: potassium, sodium, calcium, magnesium, iron and zinc.
We think green - not only with our Multi Vital powder
Experienced veterinarians and scientists were involved in the development of the Multi Vital powder. Together with them, we agreed on the composition and had it tested by an independent laboratory.
By the way: We protect the environment! And we are very proud of that! By having our Multi Vital powder produced exclusively in Germany, we save on delivery routes. The environment thanks us.
Natural vitamins for the dog
Our Multi Vital powder is equipped with vitamin-rich "superfoods" such as barley grass, spirulina algae, açaí fruit and acerola. A real vitamin C bomb, which is also full of biotin and folic acid thanks to tasty brewer's yeast. And because that is not enough for us, it also contains salmon. So on top of that there's a good portion of omega-3 fatty acids.
How do I dose the Multi Vital powder?
For every 10 kg of body weight we recommend one measuring spoonful full. Our supplied dosage spoon corresponds to a recommended daily amount of 2.5 g.
So if your dog weighs 5 kg, just give him half a measuring spoonful full, if he weighs more, you get more. Simply adjust the amount to your dog's size. You can put the pretty green powder over the dog food or mix it in.
By the way: If your four-legged friend is ill or is about to have an operation, the Multi Vital powder can also be used as a cure. This way your pelt-nose will definitely get fit again quickly.

Frequently asked questions
What vitamins does a dog need?
Vitamins A, D, E and K belong to the group of fat-soluble vitamins. Animals can store these well. The correct supply of these vitamins is usually provided by a balanced diet. Dogs have a particularly poor ability to store the important vitamins B and C. These vitamins should always be supplied when choosing a food or snack.
Which vitamins for dogs?
The most important vitamins for the dog are the B vitamins. The supply of vitamin C is also important. Dog owners* should be careful with vitamins A and D. As a rule, dogs are supplied with sufficient amounts of these vitamins through a balanced diet. Food supplements in too high doses can carry the risk of oversupply.
Which vitamins are important for dogs?
Vitamins A, C, D, B and K are particularly important for the dog's health. Dog owners* should ensure that their dogs are supplied with sufficient amounts of these vitamins, especially in puppies, during pregnancy or at an advanced age. If the animal shows tiredness, a poor coat or seems to have no drive, this can be a sign of an undersupply.
Important vitamins and minerals for your dog
For the majority of dog owners, commercial dog food is the most sensible way to feed their dogs; it is not only convenient, but - if they choose high quality food produced by companies with proven ingredient integrity - it provides their dogs with a generally healthy diet. However, there are many factors to consider when choosing commercial pet food, and your dog may not be getting enough nutrients and minerals for a "complete and balanced" diet.
The vitamins and minerals in many supplements help your dog fight disease, increase energy and maintain general health. They are a great addition to your pet's diet, whether you feed him packaged dog food or home-cooked meals.
Which vitamin is found in which food?
Vitamin A: carrots, spinach, liver, pumpkin, sweet potatoes, fish oil, eggs
Vitamin D: Sea fish oil, fatty fish, egg yolk, dairy products, liver, beef, cottage cheese
Vitamin E: vegetable oils, green leafy vegetables, seeds, wheat germ, bran, whole grain, liver
Vitamin K: liver, green leafy vegetables, milk, cabbage, fish
Vitamin C: fruit, vegetables, organ meat
Vitamin B: whole grain cereals, nutritional or brewer's yeast, liver, beans, green vegetables, spirulina, nuts, dairy products
Which minerals, trace elements & mineral nutrients are contained in which food?
Calcium: milk, yoghurt, tofu, bone-in sardines, raw bones, pak choy, green beans, broccoli, cauliflower
Phosphorus: all animal tissues, eggs, fish, milk

7 vitamins that your dog needs for a healthy life
There is a wide range of products offering human vitamins in grocery shops, on the internet and in pharmacies. With so many options available to us, it is only logical that we should ask ourselves whether dog vitamins are the right choice for our pets.
But do dogs really need these nutrients? Are there any risks? What should you give your dog? Here are some answers.
What are vitamins?
Vitamins are organic compounds that are necessary to sustain life. Most of them occur naturally in food. The body of all animals needs vitamins for growth and maintenance. This is of course also true for our favourite four-legged friends: dogs and cats.
You probably know most of the vitamins that the human and animal body needs: There are water-soluble vitamins and fat-soluble vitamins.
- vitamin A
- B vitamins (biotin, folate, niacin, pantothenic acid, riboflavin, thiamine, vitamin B6 and vitamin B12)
- vitamin C
- vitamin D
- vitamin E
- vitamin K
Dogs also need these vitamins, although it is very important that we are aware that they may need them in different amounts than humans.
Vitamin A for dogs
Vitamin A, if you ever wondered, is the vitamin in carrots that is responsible for the good vision your parents promised you. This fat-soluble vitamin is also responsible for growth, foetal development, immune function and cell function. There are eye care supplements for dogs that contain vitamin A.
B vitamins for dogs or also: Vitamin B complex for dogs
The B vitamins are a group of important vitamins that play a role in the health of your felnase. We would like to go into a little more detail about these healthy little helpers.
VITAMINS can be divided into two families: fat-soluble, namely A, D, E and K, and water-soluble, namely B and C.
In general, a balanced diet and additional synthesis by intestinal bacteria ensure a sufficient intake, although this can become marginal in situations of severe water loss (diarrhoea, etc.). The reason for this is the water-soluble aspect of the B complex vitamins and the fact that they cannot be stored.
Riboflavin (B2), niacin (B3), pantothenic acid (B5), pyridoxine (B6), biotin (B7) are all important for the quality of the skin barrier function. Deficiency symptoms can lead to dry, flaky skin, accompanied by weight loss and itching. For example, a lack of riboflavin can lead to head and neck hair loss, especially in cats.
Cats have a high need for water-soluble B vitamins, and they are not able to convert β carotene into retinol (the active form of vitamin A). This shows us that these pets are naturally adapted to a carnivorous diet, as these vitamins are present in large quantities in animal tissues.
The skin barrier cocktail - skin-fur in harmony
The Waltham Centre for Animal Nutrition studied 27 substances that were believed to have a beneficial effect on skin function. The selection criteria were based on limiting water loss through the epidermis and the synthesis of skin lipids. From this, the centre identified four B vitamins and one amino acid that act synergistically to improve the barrier function of the epidermis and reduce transepidermal water loss. They were:
Pantothenic acid, which is a co-enzyme involved in many metabolic pathways, including those of fatty acids
inositol and choline, which cooperate in the formation of cell membranes - together with phosphorus, choline forms phospholipids;
niacin, which is synthesised from tryptophane, is essential for cellular respiration and is also essential for good and supple skin;
histidine is essential for the growth and maturation of epidermal cells (keratinocytes).
Together, this "PINCH" cocktail acts in synergy to promote the synthesis of ceramides (skin lipids necessary for the integrity of the outer layer of the epidermis). However, due to the time required for the epidermal cell differentiation process, these nutrients will only have a beneficial effect after approximately two months' administration.
The benefits of vitamin B12
In addition to those already mentioned, cobalamin is important for pets. As a co-enzyme, it is involved in many essential biochemical reactions and plays a primary role in protein synthesis and red blood cell production.
It is mainly found in animal products (meat and offal) and is very stable during the heat treatment of food. It is the only vitamin that contains a mineral element, cobalt, in its chemical formula.
Cobalamin plays an essential role in the synthesis of nucleic acids (in synergy with folic acid). A deficiency disrupts protein synthesis, particularly in rapidly regenerating tissues such as haematopoietic tissue.
A decrease in the body's cobalamin reserves can be observed in cats and dogs suffering from problems with their pancreas or liver. The depletion of reserves can be explained by chronic dysorexia or intestinal malabsorption, which reduces the amount of cobalamin available to the animal.
Dogs and cats are unable to store large quantities of cobalamin in their bodies and they quickly become numb if their homeostasis is disturbed. Therefore, supplementation of vitamin B12 is essential for nutritional management in cats and dogs with impaired pancreatic or liver function.
The others in the B family
Thiamine helps regulate energy and carbohydrate metabolism and activates ion channels in nerve tissue.
Riboflavin, B12 and niacin support the enzyme function.
Vitamin B6 is particularly important. This vitamin is responsible for glucose formation, the function of red blood cells and the nervous system, hormone regulation, immune response, niacin synthesis and gene activation.
Pantothenic acid helps with energy metabolism.
Folic acid plays a role in amino acid and nucleotide metabolism and in mitochondrial protein synthesis.
Vitamin B complex
Vitamin B complex acts as a co-enzyme that promotes biochemical reactions to convert carbohydrates into glucose, which provides energy to the body. It is necessary in a dog's diet for the assimilation of protein and fat. Water-soluble, this vitamin flushes through the body in four to eight hours - oversupply is impossible: the body simply excretes too much through digestion.
Caution, fragile! More is sometimes more!
Commercial dog food actually contains B vitamins, but these are delicate & fragile as they are destroyed by heat, light and air. Commercial dog food often reaches temperatures above 50°C during processing, killing or altering many nutrients, minerals and amino acids.
The amount of the complex actually available to the dog through commercial dog food is therefore minimal. Many of the B vitamins are destroyed when exposed to light and air. It is therefore crucial that a vitamin B complex is added to both commercial and home-made food as a dietary supplement.
This complex is naturally present in liver, milk, eggs, brewer's yeast, wheat bran, wheat germ, seaweed, molasses, kidney and heart, but even diets containing it are often insufficient to provide today's dog with enough vitamin B to counteract environmental stress. As this is a water-soluble vitamin, it should be fed twice a day.
Vegetarian dog foods are known to be low in vitamin B, and it is essential that the complex is added to these foods.
- Symptoms of vitamin B deficiency in dogs
- This is how you recognise a deficiency in your dog:
- Excessive scratching of skin and coat
- Flea allergies
- Has more fleas and ticks
- Flies disturb him in summer
- Soiled and/or decayed teeth
- Travel sickness / nausea
- Weight gain and constipation
- Hair Loss
- Premature greying
- Poor response to vaccines
- Anxious and stressed
- Elevated cholesterol levels
The components of the B-complex work more efficiently if there is sufficient vitamin C in the diet, and both are crucial for protein and fat absorption.
If your dog has chronic ear problems, kidney, liver or metabolic disorders, skin allergies, pigment changes, epilepsy or behavioural changes such as aggression, shyness, anxiety and fear or an inability to think and act clearly, he may be showing a deficiency of B-complex vitamins.
Why B-complex instead of vitamin B-12?
The B vitamins can be bought as individual components. It is possible to buy B1, B6, vitamin B12 etc. Many people then use them without using the whole complex. None of these vitamins are found in nature. Foods that contain B vitamins contain several of them, and no food is known to contain them in isolation. So if you decide to feed extra B6, for example, it should always be fed together with the complex powder.
Is your dog taking antibiotics?
A good B-complex should always be fed even if antibiotics are being used. Most antibiotics destroy the B vitamins in the digestive tract, which often leads to diarrhoea.
A sufficient supply of vitamin B complex will help your dog stay healthy and young and enable him to cope with the daily stresses and strains and also help him fight off fleas and ticks.
Vitamin C for dogs
Vitamin C is an important antioxidant. It traps potentially harmful free radicals in the body and can help reduce inflammation and cognitive ageing. Dogs can actually synthesise vitamin C in their own liver, but in many cases supplementation can provide health benefits.
Vitamin D for dogs
Vitamin D, or the "sunshine vitamin", enables your dog's body to balance minerals such as phosphorus and calcium for healthy bone growth. Without this vitamin, your dog would not be able to develop properly or maintain healthy muscles and bones.
Vitamin E for dogs
Vitamin E is one of your dog's defences against oxidative damage. This fat-soluble vitamin is also essential for cell function and fat metabolism. A deficiency can lead to degeneration of the eyes and muscles and to reproductive problems.
Vitamin K for dogs
Vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in activating the clotting ability of your dog's blood. Taking certain rat and mouse poisons inhibits dogs' ability to utilise vitamin K in their bodies, leading to bleeding and death if not treated.
Choline for dogs
Choline is a necessary component of the phospholipid cell membrane. It supports healthy brain and liver function and is occasionally used as part of a treatment plan for pets with epilepsy.
Do dogs need vitamin supplements from tablets & co?
Does your dog get its nutrients from dog food? Commercial dog food products labelled "complete and balanced" do not always contain all the vitamins, minerals and nutrients your dog needs.
Foods intended for different stages of life, such as puppy food, adult dog food and food for older dogs, contain different amounts of certain nutrients depending on the requirements of that stage of life. This is particularly important for large breed puppies, as these breeds can develop diseases such as hip dysplasia if their food contains minerals such as calcium that cause them to grow too quickly.
Dogs fed a home-made food may also need supplements to ensure they get enough nutrients in their meals.
Are there any risks associated with dog vitamins?
A balanced supply of vitamins is absolutely vital. We should not be surprised that something so essential in large quantities can also be potentially dangerous.
You may already know that too much of the mineral calcium can cause skeletal problems in large-breed puppies.
Too much vitamin A can cause dehydration and joint pain, and even damage your dog's blood vessels.
You can avoid these risks by working out a diet plan with your vet.
How do you choose a dog vitamin?
The best way to choose a dog vitamin is to talk to your vet about which dog vitamin is suitable as a dietary supplement for your dog.
There are exceptions to this rule. If your dog needs extra nutrients, either as a supplement to his home-made food or because of illness or deficiency, you should ensure that your dog is given the appropriate vitamin supplement.
If you are unsure, talk to your vet about the right vitamin supplement for your dog.
Products for humans often have different concentrations of vitamins than products made specifically for dogs and may even contain additives that are harmful to dogs. This means that you should get a powder or tablets that are ideal for your dog and, in the best case, contain multi-vitamins and multi-mineral substances. With our Multi-Vital-Powder you have the additional security of getting completely natural ingredients:
- Brewer's yeast
- Barley Grass
- Burma Spirulina Algae
- açaí fruit and
The ideally combined and also delicious powder not only offers a wide range of vitamins for dogs (including vitamin B complex) but also other important high-quality minerals, trace elements and omega 3 fatty acids for a healthy supply when needed: all this for e.g. skin and coat, gastrointestinal tract, digestion etc.
Easy to dose and, unlike tablets, also easy for your quadruped to absorb. So that you can be absolutely sure which amounts of which substance are contained, we have had the powder tested in an independent laboratory and provide you with the exact analyses on our product page for downloading.
Vitamins are some of the building blocks for your dog's health. Feeding your dog a high-quality supplementary food is the best way to ensure that he gets all the nutrients he needs.
