CalciCare powder contains a combination of calcium and phosphate for you growing or lactating carnivores. The supplement will provide these minerals in the correct ratio to ensure good bone and dental health. This supplement is designed to be used in combination with with the Premium Cheetah Supplement for cheetahs and other smaller felids or with the Panthera Supplement for lions, tigers or leopards. Each 10 gram scoop of powder (added to 1 kg of meat) provides the same amount of calcium as would be available from 100 to 150 grams of bones.
"I would like to share a bit of success we had. We caught a leopard in a trap that was presumed to be about 6 months old (he weighed 13 kg). At that stage, I ordered the Panthera and CalciCare powder from you for this young cat. When we released him 3 months later, he weighed 27.5 kg! I am unbelievably impressed with the powder, and your supplements are the only ones that I recommend to any clients that keep predators."
