BASF Lutavit® in Dog Food

All those who have a four-legged companion are unanimous: the dog is man's best friend. Loyal, intelligent, sensitive and dedicated, he is for many a full member of the family. If it is possible to share many things with your pet (a walk, a bath or a hug for example), sharing your meal is not a good idea. His needs are very different from ours. Did you know that a BASF product can help him be full of energy throughout the day?
