Zinacutin Tablets for Dogs

  • 40mg » Pack of 60 £34.70

Description

Each tablet contains 40mg of elemental zinc and has been designed to provide a palatable high concentrated zinc supplement for dogs.

Zinc is important in metabolically active tissues such as the intestine, immune system and the skin. It is a component of more than 300 enzyme systems including many of those responsible for normal cell growth and repair. Despite the consumption of a diet balanced for zinc there are situations where additional supplementation is required.

Northern breeds such as the Husky, Malamute and Samoyed may benefit from additional supplementation. Rapidly growing dogs may also on occasions require extra zinc.

Dogs with poor liver or gastro-intestinal function often benefit from zinc.

Zinacutin contains 40mg of elemental zinc derived from approximately 200mg of zinc sulphate. One tablet provides sufficient zinc for a 20kg dog.

Zinc for my huskies

My 31kg male husky is suffering with ZRD I have been giving him 50mg of zinc gluconate daily after food for the past month or so but his skin condition isn't getting any better I'm scared to give him more as I don't want to overdose him. Have you any ideas how to combat this condition ? He is fed a balanced raw diet from wolf tucker and has a little salmon oil on his food 3 times a week.

I would have to wonder if you have the correct diagnosis. The whole point about Zinc Responsive Dermatitis is that if you give a zinc supplement, the skin condition clears up. If that does not work, then by definition the dog does not have ZRD. Possibly it will start to show a good response if you continue a bit longer, but I would think you need to reassess the diganosis. Possibly this is just a pyoderma, or perhaps allergic skin disease. (Allergies can still happen on any diet.)
