My Doggie Weed is a 100% pure organic seaweed product from Norway called Ascophyllum nodosum (AN).

AN may slow the progression of periodontal disease, reduce plaque and calculus, you can read more in this 2018 placebo-controlled, double-blind, randomized 90-day study in dogs.

Our Doggie Weed has been tested for heavy metals and comes in at the safe level, a report can be obtained on request.

Dogs with Thyroid conditions i.e. overactive Thyroid should not take this product unless, under the supervision of a Vet, a typical analysis can be found in the graphics on this page.

Scientists of the above-mentioned study assumed that, in dogs with normal thyroid function characterized by normal levels of thyroxine in serum, the amounts of iodine used in the study which our dosage rates are based on would not induce any adverse effects. This conclusion was based on a study demonstrating that no toxic effects occurred when alga was included in the diet at concentrations of up to 15%.

One study that we find very encouraging given our passion for gut health is this 2018 study that showed that AN has potential uses as functional food components to improve human gut health.

Directions for use
Mix with your dog's food, if your dog needs encouragement, you can mix it with wet food such as raw meat, sardines, kefir, yogurt etc.  

Caution:
Whilst My Doggie Weed is not  high in Iodine (0.062400 mg/kg), you should not give with with another seaweed supplement as you may overdo iodine intake.  My Doggie Weed is perfectly safe to give with foods such has Vets All Natural Complete Mix which contains small amounts of Seaweed.

To give you an example of the low iodine content, we can compare to Now branded Kelp powder which is 5000 mg/kg which is one of the highest iodine Kelps commercially available.
