|What's really the best way to supplement calcium into homecooked? I've read bonemeal in the Pitcairn book, Calcium Carbonate in the Whole Pet Diet and other people on Dogster have said Coral Calcium, but that's alkaline (as is Calcium Carbonate ie Tums) when I've also read that Calcium Citrate is better for dogs because of their acidic stomachs. I have also seen Calcium caseinate (the calcium from cows milk) which also contains additional protein/amino acids but no lactose. Wouldn't that be good for an extra protein boost? Or not?
So... I'm feeling confused. I've been using bonemeal since I have been using the Pitcairn recipes as my transition to homecooked, but I can see how it would be more flexible to use a calcium supplement that doesn't contain phosphorous to balance the meals if I want to branch out with other recipes etc. Especially to do my own stews without grains.
