Animal Essentials Seaweed Calcium (formerly "Calcium from the Sea") is a natural calcified seaweed product harvested from the seabed off the south west coast of Ireland. Here amongst the cleanest and purest waters found any where in the world grows the small red seaweed Lithothamnium, which is composed of a wide variety of body essential nutrients, including calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, and potassium.

With Animal Essentials Seaweed Calcium you can be sure your pet is getting enough calcium and essential minerals. Plus, each batch is laboratory tested for purity!

This product was recently redesigned, changing the title from "Calcium from the Sea" to "Seaweed Calcium" and sprucing up the graphics. Nothing inside the bottle has changed--- it is still the same great product that you are used to!

Why Not Just Use Bone Meal?

Calcium is one of the most challenging minerals for the animal body to utilize. Bone meal can be difficult for dogs, cats, and most other animals to fully digest. This is because the nutritional values of bone meal, which is typically in the range of 24% calcium and 12% phosphorus, are locked within relatively large particles that appear as jagged little, flat tiles when viewed under a microscope. These particles are very slow to digest, and most will likely pass through the body before much of their calcium can be absorbed into the body. Furthermore, the density of bone meal particles can vary by a factor of 2:1 depending on the particle size and shape--- so you never know exactly how much bioavailable calcium is in a teaspoon or cup. Animal Essentials seaweed calcium on the other hand, is 34% pure calcium that is contained in very small, porous particles that look very much like pieces of popcorn when magnified. This porosity allows digestive acids to permeate the particles so they can dissolve quickly in the stomach for more thorough digestion. Our Calcium also contains magnesium which is necessary for calcium absorption into the bone.

Bottom line: Animal Essentials Calcium is much easier for your companion to digest and fully utilize---meaning you can feed less and expect more! We recommend you use 1/4 to1/3 less Animal Essential’s Calcium than bone meal.

Dr. Richard Pitcairn recommends this calcium in his book "The Complete Secrets to the Natural Health of Dogs & Cats".

Available in 12 oz Powder (340 grams). Each teaspoon contains about 3 grams. 110 teaspoons per container.

      Comments about Animal Essentials Seaweed Calcium Dog & Cat Supplement:

      Very important in my old dog's daily diet. He was diagnosed with kidney failure and I followed a home made diet that includes this product. In 8 months, my dog was perfectly healthy. I stop the diet, but still give him the Seaweed Calcium. He is 14 years old!

        Comments about Animal Essentials Seaweed Calcium Dog & Cat Supplement:

        The breed of dogs I own, have quite a few allergies and is allergic to some of the most common foods. Since I cook them a special diet I need to supplement calcium. My vet told me what is most commonly added to their food as a calcium supplement, in which you can obtain at the feed store. It is poisonous to humans and I am sure not going to give it to my dogs with allergies and a sensitive stomach. I am very grateful for finding this supplement.

          Calcium is essential to my girl's homemade diet and this was a no brainer! She doesn't seem bothered by the taste as she devours it everytime. After i cook her food I mix in the amount prescribed per pound of meat and portion the batch. So far, so good!

                I love the powdered calcium that I can add to my companion Jake's home-made dog food. I had tried other products - chewables etc that he hated. On top of that I was not confident about thier sourcing. This is in powdered form and easy to add with the meal or in preparation of an entire batch. Calcium is so important to the canine diet and home made food must be supplemented with bones and added calcium. I am glad I ordered two!

                  In my opinion, a much safer, easier way to replace bone meal in a raw diet for cats. My rescue cats gobble it right down so it must taste ok, too.

                      I prefer this product over bone meal because it is easy for puppies (and all dogs) to digest and absorb. I use it to supplement a high nutrient organic home cooked dog-food for my puppies, to complement the growth of their bones along with the rest of their bodies and muscles.

                        I was starting my dog on a raw food diet and wanted to have some calcium on hand to add to her diet. She refuses to eat anything I put this calcium on, even meat. Tried it with cottage cheese, yogurt, mixed with everything. She will not eat anything that has this calcium on it.
