Okay, just thought the ratio would give you an indication as to how much phosphorus since the calcium is known, my bad!

If it were just bone, then I"m sure it would but there are more ingredients than just bone and there is a bone extract.

Amazon does sell it. I looked into it awhile ago but didn't buy it because I couldn't find any feedback. Banshee is on a RAW diet and so is Jax. I'll have to contact the company to see if they have any phosphorus info on it.

Since it's homeopathic, it doesn't go by the dog's weight---from what I've read.

I crush three Zeel tabs in Rudy's drinkng water each morning. The human dose is one tab 3x/day sublingually. I was giving him three in the morning, three at night with his meals but I think the key is that it gets absorbed through the mouth--so I started putting it in his water.

Home-made (preservative free) Bone stock. Cheap, effective, no man-made ingredients and you can just pour on the food. But you have to add vinegar as you need an acid to extract the minerals.

This is one of the best most bio-available form of glucosmine.

Except if you have a CRF dog. High phosphorus.

I've seen you post this a lot, and attempted to make it a couple of weeks ago, but it did not gelatanize (sp?) as I think the recipe said it would. Did I not cook it enough? Not enough vinegar?

Depends on bone to water ratio - if you throw in chicken frames 2-3, cover wityh enough water to about an inch above. If you do in a slow cooker - 24hrs and about 1/4C of vinegar. Then after removing bones and bring to room temp - refridgerate overnight. adding in a small beef soup bone too will help. It will remain geletin from the fridge, but once it sits at room temp it goes liquid.

Thanks! I think there were 3 chicken backs. Water was just over them. My husband might have stopped it before 24 hours and I'm not sure if we let it get to room temp before refrigerating. We also added turmeric and garlic, not sure if that matters as far as consistency goes. I'll follow directions better next time!
