Calcium Supplements?
« on: April 02, 2007, 01:48:27 pm »
I am feeding Atlas Royal Canin Maxi Puppy food, and giving him plain non fat yogurt twice a day too for his tummy. Do I need to give a calcium supplement as well?

NO!  Calcium supplementatio n is bad for growing dogs and has been linked in several studies to orthopedic problems. It should never be necessary if you are feeding a balanced food and MORE calcium is not a good thing.
