It is equally important to use a vitamin-mineral supplement with raw or homemade diets to ensure there are no deficiencies with various recipes and to increase absorption of nutrients in the food. Also, we have been analyzing raw diets for over 30 years and have found that 95% have serious calcium deficiencies. This can lead to bone, muscle, and reproductive disorders. Our KITTY BLOOM KALAC M34 is a pure calcium product designed for use in homemade diets to correct this deficiency. It provides better accuracy and is more economical than using dairy products or bone meal.
