Calcium supplements come in many forms, some are a waste of money and some may even be harming your pets!

Calcium supplements are highly beneficial for pets of all ages but beware, what you are buying may not be what it seems.

It's an unfortunate fact of life that many pet products are made from substandard ingredients.  Many forms of Calcium are either heavily processed or indigestible for your pets digestive tract.  Processed calcium supplements require very large dosages (unpleasant for your pet) yet still do not provide the trace vitamins and minerals needed to absorb and metabolize the Calcium properly.  Many of the supplements on the market can actually cause bone abnormalities, or hip dysplasia, especially in young pets.

Ineffective, possibly harmful versions of Calcium include:

Calcium Hydroxyapatite - processed, degreased, crushed cow bone meal

Calcium Citrate - Limestone or chalk processed with lactic acid

Calcium Carbonate - Limestone or precipitated chalk

Calcium Gluconate - Limestone or chalk processed with gluconic acid

Coral Calcium - Dead Calcium

Calcium is used by almost every cell in the body including heart and nerves and is necessary for muscle contraction and development and maintenance of bone structure.  The most effective and easily digested form of Calcium is a natural vegetable form.  Natural Animal Solutions 100% Certified Organic Calcium is sourced from Organic Sea Vegetable found in the Atlantic Ocean in Iceland.  This form also has a balance ration of magnesium, trace minerals, Silica, Copper, Selenium, Zinc, Boron, Manganese &  Phosphorous.
