Best described as ‘nature’s calcium’, Replace-A-Bone is sourced from 100% grass-fed an finished beef bones and contains the ideal physiological ratio of calcium and phosphorus in a microcrystalline structure that enhances absorption and bioavailability. Unlike synthetic calcium supplements, Replace-A-Bone also contains naturally occurring compounds that nourish and support the whole skeletal system for strength, flexibility, and remineralisation of bones.
✔ Targeted bone support
✔ Whole food source
✔ Superior bioavailability
✔ Suitable for puppies
✔ Sourced from ethically raised beef
Proudly Australian owned and made using 100% human-grade ingredients.
No artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.
- Meat is rich in phosphorus but contains very little calcium, so an all-meat diet will be deficient in calcium, making it critically important to add calcium back in.
- Replace-A-Bone is suitable for all life stages.
- Replace-A-Bone is made from whole bone, which contains the ideal physiological ratio of calcium and phosphorus in a microcrystalline (MCHA) structure that enhances absorption and bioavailability.
- MCHA from whole bone is considered to be more effective than standard calcium supplements in maintaining bone mass in human populations. In addition, it is suggested that MCHA accelerates fracture consolidation in patients with osteopenia or osteoporosis and is significantly more effective in preventing bone loss than calcium carbonate.

The importance of feeding lean meats
Fat is relatively devoid of vitamins and minerals and contains a lot of calories. If your dog’s diet contains more than 20% fat, it will result in less vitamins, minerals and protein being present in the food, which will make the resulting diet nutritionally incomplete. This is especially important for puppies, pregnant and senior dogs, who need more nutrients than the average adult dog.
But we don’t want too little fat either! If the total fat content of the diet dips too much below 10%, you may start to see dry, itchy skin in your dog. This is one of the first signs of fat deficiency. So try to stay within the 10% to 20% fat range most days for adult dogs and around 10% fat content for puppies. This will ensure that your dog is getting everything they need nutritionally.
