Magnesium is fairly safe...no real toxicity, unless...IF there is an existing kidney problem then it is not recommeded, but that is based on a kidney issue not causing one...
I know about natural calm, relatively tasteless...your dog is approx. 85lbs, most suppliments would estimate 2/3 a human dose...try 1/3...my dog gets 100mg a day (my vets advisement)...I think humans is around 320mg depending. Magnesium is req'd for 300 processes in the body and is "sometimes" all that is needed in seizure disorders
tumeric, I don't use but did, and gave 2 x 500mg/day split am/pm...and that was sufficient enough for results, but was 95% standardized extract...I think in an aging or arthritic dog, then as Jocoyn said, 15-2000mg may be req'd.
He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown
