Many, many dogs are packing some extra pounds. As with people, the culprits are the same: too many calories consumed and not enough exercise. We could all benefit from more walks, and it turns out the same supplement can help both dogs and people, too: L-carnitine, a naturally occurring substance found in red meat, can support healthy weight management. Other benefits include optimizing the effects of exercise and recovery and supporting cardiovascular and brain health. If you’re looking to slim your dog’s waistline, Swiss supplement maker Lonza makes a L-carnitine supplement, Carniking, especially for dogs. Check it out at carniking.com.
