What does calcium do exactly?
The most important function of calcium in your dog’s body is to ensure strong bones and teeth. However, calcium is also needed for such things as coagulation, heart muscle contraction and processing nerve impulses. Calcium might also help protect against cancer. A calcium deficiency can lead to bones becoming more brittle and cause a vitamin D3 deficiency. If your dog or cat has a cut, then it will heal more slowly if he has a calcium deficiency, because the blood will not clot as readily. A proportion of the calcium is excreted through the faeces or urine. Yarrah ensures that there is always enough calcium in its food.
