Just as we humans need amino acids, so do our furbaby’s. Amino acids are necessary to make proteins. And proteins are needed in the body for functions like: building and repairing muscles and other body tissues, regenerating new skin cells, hair growth, building muscle tissue, and more. Proteins also provide energy (like carbohydrates do) and work to keep the immune system strong. A dog’s body is can only make about half of the 22 amino acids necessary to make proteins, so the rest must come from the your pet’s diet. Deficiencies in any of the essential amino acids over time can lead to health problems which can be of particular concern to pet parents of picky and light eaters.
If your feel your pet may be lacking in their protein requirements, ask your veterinarian about adding an amino supplement.

I run The Greener Side Haven animal sanctuary and was lucky enough to find out about Petviti. We have used these supplements on numerous of our dogs and have had great results. We specialize in seniors and those with extensive medical needs. Since using Petviti, our older and critical care animals have shown improvement in there overall general health and attitude. They appear brighter and more active and in some cases more feisty, which is a good thing. Some took time to like the taste, but others loved it right away. I highly recommend giving Petviti a try.
Thank you so much for taking the time to share your testimonial. We are extremely happy to hear how your pets are benefiting from Petviti’s amino acid supplement.
