Cani-Cal 250g Calcium Supplement Powder for Dogs
CANI-CAL is a calcium supplement specifically formulated for dogs. It contains an optimal level of calcium and phosphorus, necessary for normal growth and bone development in dogs. Nowadays calcium supplementation is not considered to be essential, provided growing dogs receive adequate levels in their diets. This may not always be possible, and, under certain conditions, calcium supplementation can be of benefit to the dog.
CANI-CAL can be also used as a supplement in pregnant and lactating bitches to ensure that they are receiving enough calcium for gestation and milk production.
|5 grams (one level measure) of CANI-CAL contains:|
|Vitamin A||2000 iu|
|Vitamin D3||150 iu|
|Vitamin E||20 mg|
|Calcium / Phosphorus ratio||1|
The calcium / phosphorus ratio of CANI-CAL is 1,2 : 1, which is generally accepted as optimum for dogs.
A high dietary calcium content or a vegetable protein-based diet (e.g. dry dog foods all of which are largely soya) can dramatically increase the zinc requirements of the dog. In addition, recent studies in man suggest that the inclusion of soy protein in a diet also reduces the absorption of iron. Both of these essential nutrients (iron and zinc) are present in CANI-CAL in adequate quantities. Iron is present as ferrous fumarate which is well-absorbed and, at 5mg of zinc per 5g dose, CANI-CAL more than provides for the increased zinc needs of the dog.
The base of yeast and real cheese and liver ensures palatability making it most acceptable to dogs of all ages and types.
CANI-CAL may be given to puppies and growing dogs and bitches during gestation and lactation, as well as dogs of any age and type.
