How much to I put in for 4 oz food I feed my one dog 1/2 cup 2x day he is 16 a d 11.2 pounds The other gets 1 cup am and 1/2 cup pm. She is 8 and 24 pounds I make 6 pounds turkey and then make veggies and carbs and then portion it out How much each day for each dog ?
Answer by RescueMomDec 05, 2021
Directions on back of package states one teaspoon for each pound of homemade dog food. So if you make 6lbs of turkey and add say 1lb of veggies that would be 7lbs of food, mix in 7 teaspoons. I make 10lbs of food every other day and mix in 10 teaspoons after it cools down. Hope that help some.

How many mg of calcium is there per tsp of this supplement? thanks.
Answer by ChewyApr 14, 2023
This Supplement contains 1000 milligrams of Calcium per teaspoon.

Is this only for dogs who eat raw/ home cooked meals? I was told to add calcium to my nursing dogs diet. She is on a grain free kibble. Will this be okay to add to her food?
Answer by ChewyJun 04, 2018
This food is suitable for dog and cats that aren't on a raw diet as well. We recommend consulting a veterinary professional before giving supplements to your pet.

I make my food in big batches and freeze it (about a month's worth at a time). Can this supplement be mixed in with the food and thrown in the freezer?
Answer by ChewyMar 07, 2018
The calcium can be frozen.

Goo to have

We recently ordered this product to add to our dogs home cooked food. Our dogs do not seem to mind it. At first one of them didn't seem as excited, but quickly got over it and went back to acting her usual self, getting excited for her food. It gives me a piece of mind knowing that they're getting one of many key nutrients that they need to be healthy.

Seaweed Calcium

Hard to review as we have been using for a short time and without vet doing bloodwork, we cannot tell how well this is working. BUT, Smokey loves it. I use a small amount each Sunday evening with his dinner and he gobbles everything up.

Very Satisfied

I have been using Animal Essentials Seaweed Calcium to make my dogs food for several years now and have always been satisfied with the product. They did change their packaging recently , and I have to say I like the old packaging so much better. I am very glad I kept the last canister and am able to transfer the calcium to the canister when the bag arrives because I do NOT like the bag it now comes in . This time I was shopping for items that I regularly buy for my dog , and that I usually buy online from another well known company. I had an offer from my American Express Credit card to use so I thought I would compare prices , and to my surprise, all of the 3 items I needed to purchase were priced exactly the same as where I usually shop , so I gave Chewy a try and was very satisfied. The order arrived the next day , & qualified for free shipping because the 3 items I was interested in met the minimum for that. That is the only drawback, you do need to purchase a minimum amount to get free shipping from Chewy.

I was told to get this supplement for my almost year old GSD puppy Tessa who is on a raw diet so I purchased two. The problem is that even in the smallest amount she refused to eat her food. If your dog is picky and smells everything I don't recommend trying this product. Disappointed but just one more attempt at a new supplement that failed miserably.

DO NOT BUY - made my dog VERY ill.

He still hasn't made a full recovery. He become sick with vomiting and very bad diarrhea after I used this supplement. I followed the directions as they were written. DO NOT BUY THIS STUFF. I don't know if it was spoiled or if it was intentionally tampered with.

Third time repurchasing

I feed my golden a homemade raw diet formulated by a canine nutritionist and his recipe includes this supplement. This is my third time repurchasing (first time through Chewy). They did recently update the packaging from a plastic container to a resealable bag.

My dog has diarrhea

I brought this for homemade dog food. I found my dog had diarrhea after I started to add it in his food. And now he refused to eat the food I prepared if I added the powder. NOT RECOMMENDED. At least not working for my dog. Need to find other calcium supplements.

Good source of calcium

My vet wants me to add a little calcium to my dog's diet. He's eats a combination of raw and homecooked and the homecooked doesn't offer enough. Most recommend Bone Meal but I've read and see that bone meal often is contaminated with heavy metals, especially lead. I believe this to be a better and more absorbable source with little to no contamination.
