The latest paper from the VitDAL was published today. Dr Mellanby’s essay in Journal of Small Animal Practice discussed the growing evidence that vitamin D can influence the biology of both skeletal and non-skeletal tissues of companion animals. The paper highlights the value of exploring the role of vitamin D in non skeletal health in order to improve the welfare of companion animals but also highlights how advancing understanding of vitamin D biology in animals may also lead to human health benefits.
