Jax08 She isn't giving "supplemental" calcium. She's adding the proper amount of calcium to ground meat and organ to give the puppy a balanced meal.

Seer Puppies should not be given supplemental calcium. Eggshells are fine for older dogs, mine get plenty, but they are calcium and should not be included in a puppys formula.

One teaspoon per pound for KAL.

I was surprised too but when I pulled the data and did the spreadsheet, it was the bone that needed to be removed from her diet in order to bring the phosphorus down.

Bone has way more phosphorus than MM.
