FORTAN Calcium 40 for dogs and cats - The compensation for an unfavourable mineral content in raw feeding
FORTAN Calcium 40 serves to compensate for an unfavourable mineral content, as can occur when feeding phosphorus-rich food in home-made feed rations (B.A.R.F.) or proportionate meat feeding to ready-made feed.

Feeding phosphorus-rich foods, e.g. meat and offal, results in a relative reduction of calcium levels in the dog's body.
This is not surprising, because 100 g of meat contain on average 40 mg of calcium, but 170 mg of phosphorus.
This results in a calcium-phosphorus ratio of only 0.2 : 1, which can quickly lead to a calcium deficiency in the dog.
Balanced calcium-phosphorus ratio = optimal metabolism
A calcium-phosphorus ratio of between 1.3 : 1 and 2 : 1 should be aimed for in the feed rations, depending on the performance requirements.
If the recommended ratio is deviated from below 1 : 1, the intake will be negatively affected. This also affects the dog's metabolism.
The supply gaps due to extremely low calcium but high phosphorus contents in the feed lead to bone cell degradation as well as an impairment of bone stability and require the targeted supply of calcium.
Calcium is the most important mineral
for the development and maintenance of the skeletal system and teeth.
It is also important for other metabolic functions. It serves to control and regulate processes in the cell membranes.
FORTAN Calcium 40 has a high calcium content of 40 %.
