Lithothamnium is more then just a calcium supplement for dogs, it is composed of a wide variety of body essential nutrients including Calcium, Magnesium, Boron and Zinc. It is also very absorbent, and can dry liquid stools fast. This product should not be given to animals with firm stools.
Lithothamnium derives its calcium and minerals from a natural seaweed product harvested from the sea bed off the South West Coast of Ireland. Here amongst the cleanest and purest waters found in the world grows the small red seaweed Lithothamnium.
The Seaweed eventually grows into a hard and brittle coral-like structure. Local tide patterns deposit the seaweed in large deep beds. The material is dredged from the ocean floor, washed thoroughly in fresh water and the highest quality fraction is separated to be taken to an ISO 9002 certified food facility. Here the material is carefully inspected, sterilized, and dried then milled to the required particle size.
