Vitamin D is said to be great for bones. As it boosts plasma calcium and phosphorus levels in our body to the extent where normal mineralization of bones can occur. That’s not the only job of vitamin D. Other than helping in skeletal growth, it also helps in immune system, metabolism and in the control of parathyroid gland that is responsible for balancing calcium in our body. It also plays a great role in our skin and helps prevent cancer. Quite a lot of uses, right? So, now the question is how exactly can we get vitamin D?

There are many different sources for Vitamin D and one of the easiest is sunlight. That’s why doctors advise us to spend some time in the sun, with sunscreen on of course and absorb some vitamin D. Just like humans, animals also need Vitamin D. This is why we see animals enjoying a sunbath every now and then. We surfed the internet and managed to find 30 photos of pets re-energising themselves in the sun. Scroll down to see.

This one enjoys the illuminated rectangle.

Soak up the goodness.

In animals, the absorption of Vitamin D is very different than humans. Their bodies are covered in fur that acts as a natural sunscreen for them. It keeps the UV rays from touching their skin directly. So, when these animals sunbathe, vitamin D is stored on their skin in the form of oil and most animals then lick it off their skin for absorption.

So after browning in the sun, the cat had a white patch on his chest?

Dr Mauria O’Brien, who is a specialist in emergency and critical care at the University of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital says “Many studies in humans have found that low vitamin D status is associated with common cancers, autoimmune diseases, cardiovascular disorders and infectious diseases, It’s possible that finding out more about how our pets use vitamin D and how much they need could help us improve their care and health.”  Dr O’Brien further added, “In the past 25 years, we’ve learned that nearly every type of cell in the vertebrate body contains receptors for vitamin D, not just the cells associated with skeletal health.” “The vitamin’s effects on the immune system are especially compelling when it comes to protecting animals from infectious diseases.”
