Puppies and young dogs often experience times of stress, sickness and injury and it is known that during these times a dogs natural supply of Vitamin C can become depleted and supplementation from a highly absorbance form of Vitamin C is recommended to provide the dog with the required amount it needs to aid the body and cells.
