Term Definition
Vitamin D

Vitamin D is central to regulating the calcium and phosphorus levels in the blood and is therefore important to bone formation. Not enough D can lead to rickets, which is a weakening and malformation of the bones. In humans, sunlight is important to convert D to a usable form for the body, but Dogs must have D added to their diets to ensure healthy skeletal formation, especially during the first 2 years of their life. D is one of the fat soluble vitamins meaning that it is stored and accumulates in the fat cells. Over supplementing with D through vitamin additives can lead to toxcity in excessive doses.
