Vitamin and Mineral Supplements for all Breeds of Dogs

Since their domestication dogs have been Man’s companions in many different forms and as such have undergone dramatic changes. Today their task is of more urban and domestic nature and what and how much they need in food is naturally considerably different to that in their days as temple, fighting, hunting or guard dogs. The closer humans and dogs live together the greater the risk of a dog being humanised and fed like a human becomes. If we take over the responsibility of providing food for our companion we must never forget that its diet must meet a dog’s specific nutritional requirements and for each particular period in its life if it is to stay healthy.

These conclusions led the NEKTON-Produkte company to develop a series of products individually formulated to meet these demands, whether for daily health maintenance, specific health problems or particular periods in a dog’s life.

Probiotic supplement for all dogs

NEKTON-Biotic-Dog is a special supplement for dogs that helps maintain a healthy balance in their digestive system. It contains beneficial bacteria that are naturally found in a dog's intestines, promoting proper digestion. Additionally, it includes natural prebiotics such as mannan-oligosaccharides and fructans, which support the growth of beneficial bacteria in the gut. This supplement is perfect for dogs experiencing digestive issues or recovering from illness or antibiotic treatments. Moreover, scientific studies have shown that NEKTON-Biotic-Dog can enhance the immune system of dogs.

Dogs often experience digestive problems, which can have various causes and are sometimes unknown. Digestive issues can occur during illnesses, after antibiotic treatments, or due to new allergies and food intolerances. Stress, such as during transportation or demanding situations, can also make the colon sensitive. These factors can disrupt the balance of the intestines, affecting the pH level and composition of the important intestinal flora. This imbalance can make the dog's body more sensitive. Maintaining a stable intestinal environment is crucial for proper food digestion and overall well-being, which can also influence the dog's behavior.

NEKTON-Biotic-Dog helps stabilize the intestinal flora using natural ingredients. To prevent acidification that promotes harmful bacteria growth, the supplement contains rice starch, which raises the pH level and creates a favorable environment for beneficial bacteria like Enterococcus faecium. These bacteria naturally occur in the intestines of humans and dogs and support regeneration. Rice starch is easily absorbed in the dog's intestines, providing energy without burdening the body.

As a prebiotic, NEKTON-Biotic-Dog includes indigestible carbohydrates from yeast cell walls (mannan-oligosaccharides) and plant by-products (fructans). Yeast cell walls also contain beta-glucans, which bind harmful substances in the intestine for excretion.

The supplement also contains inulin from dandelions, which soothes the intestines and has choleretic, diuretic, and appetizing effects. Dandelion's sesquiterpenlactones and high potassium content contribute to its diuretic properties. Additionally, dandelion stimulates metabolism and has anti- inflammatory and spasmolytic properties.

NEKTON-Biotic-Dog provides a moderate amount of yeast to supply the organism with micronutrients like B-vitamins. This helps prevent nutrient deficiencies, especially during episodes of diarrhea. The supplement is free from sugar, preservatives, and gluten.

How to feed:

A measuring spoon holding one gram (1 g) is included inside the bottle, for precise dosing. Use it as follows:

Daily give one measuring spoon (1 g) of NEKTON-Biotic-Dog for every 5 kg (11lbs) of body weight. Give a maximum of 6 g per day. To apply for the treatment of indigestion over a period of 10-15 days or longer. It is recommended that a veterinarian's opinion be sought before use or before extending the period of use. Can also be given as support during the breeding season. Mix the recommended amount of NEKTON-Biotic-Dog under the food. Dry food can previously be sprayed with water for a better adhesion of the powder. NEKTON-Biotic-Dog works well in combination with NEKTON-Dog-VM or NEKTON-Dog-H.


NEKTON-Biotic-Dog should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15° and 25° C (59° and 77° F). DO NOT STORE IN THE FRIDGE !!!

Vitamin supplement to improve the skin and coat for dogs.

NEKTON-Dog-H is a specialized vitamin supplement designed to meet all the essential vitamin needs of dogs. It contains a generous amount of biotin. This high biotin content ensures dogs have beautiful, shiny coats and optimal fur development. NEKTON-Dog-H is highly effective in addressing issues like rough and brittle coats, unnatural light spots, or changes in the skin.

Biotin plays a crucial role in various metabolic reactions and supports the overall growth, feeding, and reproduction of dogs. It specifically contributes to the health and condition of their skin and fur. When using NEKTON-Dog-H, it is important to avoid administering any other vitamin supplements simultaneously.

In many cases, animals are unable to produce enough biotin on their own, which is why it needs to be provided externally. When dogs lack sufficient biotin, they quickly display typical signs of biotin deficiency. This deficiency manifests as brittle, dry, and dull fur, often accompanied by graying hair that eventually becomes brittle and falls out. Additionally, biotin deficiency can affect the dog's skin, causing flakiness and a faded appearance. In more severe cases, it may even lead to eczema and itching.

Another factor contributing to biotin deficiency is the use of antibiotics or sulfonamides. Certain proteins, like avidin found in raw egg whites and turkey chicks, can bind to biotin and render it unusable for dogs.

Once NEKTON-Dog-H is used for a short period and the symptoms have improved, it is recommended to switch to NEKTON-Dog-VM as a supplement.

Vitamins – Minerals – Trace Elements for All Breeds of Dogs

Dogs require essential substances like vitamins, minerals, and trace elements, which their bodies either don't produce or produce in insufficient quantities. These substances need to be provided through their diet. NEKTON-Dog-VM contains carefully selected ingredients that meet the specific needs of dogs. By using NEKTON-Dog-VM, you can prevent deficiencies caused by diet and promote a well-regulated metabolism. It is an excellent supplement for ensuring optimal vitamin and mineral intake for your dog. Please note that no other vitamin supplements should be given while using NEKTON-Dog-VM.

Vitamins play a crucial role in the overall well-being of animals. However, during the preparation of animal feed, many vitamins can be easily damaged or destroyed by oxygen, light, and heat. That's why it's highly recommended to provide additional vitamin supplementation. NEKTON-Dog-VM is readily accepted when mixed with food. It's important to note that older dogs may require double the normal amount of vitamins. Increased vitamin intake is particularly important for sick, weak, and breeding animals. Additionally, dogs with gastrointestinal illnesses, kidney disorders, internal parasite infestations, or those undergoing treatment with sulfonamide or antibiotics may have higher vitamin requirements.

Natural Prebiotic and Wellbeing Supplement

NEKTON-Dog Natural plus is a completely new and useful feed supplement which exclusively contains natural ingredients which are suitable to improve convenience feeds. These vital substances, known as "secondary plant substances" or "bio-active substances", have positive effects on purely nutritional functions regarding general vitality or fitness, for digestive and utilization-supporting effects in organisms. Thus, they also protect against negative external influences. The positive effects of bio-active substances have been well tested for animals and human. NEKTON-Dog Natural plus is often used to carefully compensate for irregularities in digestion, such as diarrhea or obstipation, as a natural additive to raw feeding or to upvalue the daily food or convenience food.

This completely new compound, in contrast to the previous basic philosophy of NEKTON products, is not only about addition nutritional additives such as vitamins, trace elements or amino acids. These are nutritional active ingredients or micro-nutrients which are needed for retaining full-value rations. In NEKTON-Natural plus, a completely new and useful complementary concept is pursued. It particularly contains natural substances in addition to natural levels of nutrients and active ingredients, which are scientifically known as "secondary plant substances". These vital substances also have positive effects on purely nutritional functions regarding general well-being or wellness, for digestive and utilization-supporting measures in organisms and thus also protects against negative external influences. The effects of bio-active substances have been well tested for animals and the findings have been frequently transfered to humans. Even transfers of available assessments of an animal species to others are scientifically possible within the framework of biological observations, because all animal cells (including those of humans) and many tissues or organ systems in the animal kingdom work in exactly the same way.

NEKTON-Natural plus:

  • Ensures improved digestion
  • Support utilization of nutrients and active substances
  • Contributes to maintaining fitness
  • Positively intervenes in the intestinal flora (intestinal microbes)
  • Helps to maintain the required bodily functions (physiological processes)
  • Is an animal wellness product and "functional feed"

and contains high levels of well-measured, refined vital substances thanks to its diverse composition. In detail:
We provide the following documented effect relationships and substance-based relationships for nutritional specialists and pet owners who are interested in science.
Yeast, as a fine powder, complements the protein spectrum of the staple diet with valuable amino acids. Other features are naturally concentrated vitamin B complex and positive fibers from yeast cell walls.
Rice starch helps regulate the internal environment in the gastrointestinal tract and provides a favorable pH-value. Thus, hyperacidity in the intestine can be counteracted. As well usable energy source rice starch can be absorbed 100% in the intestines of dogs.
Calcium citrate is an organic calcium compound which provides good absorbable calcium for maintaining bone and tooth structure, and delivers citrate as quick available source of energy to the organism. Moreover, sodium chloride provides a support electrolyte imbalance.
Dandelion is particularly distinguished by its high content of fructan prebiotics and the substance inulin is in the foreground with powder from the sunroot tubers. Inulin promotes the growth of beneficial intestinal bacteria and in this way promote your dog's digestion.
The seaweed ascophyllum also offers pre-biotic "fibers" from the cell walls, particularly the so-called "ß-glucans", in addition to valuable ocean minerals and the trace element iodine. They also feed the "good" intestinal bacteria.
Beetroot is used in NEKTON-Dog Natural Plus as a natural supplier of micronutrients and trace elements such as iron, vitamin B, folic acid and potassium. The red color is caused in beetroot of betaine. Betaine is a vitamin-like red dye, which serves to heart, blood vessels and liver protection and is known to prevent against dementia.
Asparagus is distinguished by is high natural content of desirable fructooligosacchariden (FOS), its influences on sensitive intestinal occupants and thus belongs to the prebiotics. A healthy intestinal flora is also a prerequisite for a properly functioning immune system.
The same applies to leeks with regard to its high-quality FOS and added effective essential oils, scents and flavors. They stimulate the digestive juices together with the asparagus aromas.
With their carotinoids (lycopene, lutein and ß-carotene), barley grass and carrots offer true cell protection radical scavenger and natural antioxidants. In addition, beta-carotene as provitamin A and lutein are important for the function of the eyes.
Papaya contains especially in green areas the digestive enzyme papain, which provides additional assistance in the digestion of meat and protein-rich food. Thus directly facilitates the digestion of your dog. A well-functioning digestive greatly contributes to the well-being of your dog.
Canola oil contains in comparison to other oils a very high proportion of the important unsaturated omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, such as α-linolenic acid and linoleic acid, from which the organism of the dog can synthesize all essential fatty acids. The various target organs and cell effect systems for fatty acids are now known and popular, whereby skin and hair/coats are in the foreground.
