Essential Vitamins 1 + Folate + Mg includes Vitamin D (25OHD), Cobalamin (Vitamin B12) and Magnesium (Mg)- three essential nutrients that are only obtained through diet, and Folate (Fol) which is produced endogenously through the gut bacteria. Vitamin D, the most important hormone in the body, is responsible for supporting the innate immune system and has a role in disease prevention and management. Sufficient levels are anti-inflammatory, anti-proliferative, and pro-immunity. Cobalamin and folate are chiefly response for DNA/RNA production as critical cofactors. Magnesium is a critical cofactor in hundreds of processes ensuring they run effectively and efficiently. Learn more about VitD, B12, and Mg here.

Evaluating essential vitamin levels should start once the dog or cat reaches adult stages and establishes their adult diet. Once diet has been stable for 3 months, test baseline vitamins and correct any insufficiencies with supplementation, or consider a diet change if values are considerably low. VDI provides patient-specific dosing guidelines for Vitamin D, B12 and Magnesium. Recheck intervals are every year once sufficient unless diet or health changes occur.
