Probably darn good for him

Better than what they put in commercial dog food anyway

I remember when I was a little kid, me and a friend snuck off with her mom's giant bottle of chewable vitamin C, and split it (we ate the whole thing too)

Our moms about had a heart attack.

Actually, Snapcrackler is probobly right. It is probobly really good for him. Anyone can use their greens, and it has been said spirulina contains some good stuff that you can only get through sea algaes!

Just wondering if all those "greens" might have a laxative effect... if so, could make housetraining very interesting over the next couple of days...

My dog is not a puppy, but ever since we started keeping fish, she thinks the algae discs and any pellet food is a treat, and she expects some!

Yes I too am worried about the effect on his digestive tack but hes a weim pup and mighty big for 12 weeks ao I am hoping his digestive system will be able to handle it otherwise I will be cleaning carpets for the next day or two! Man o' man did he down them quickly I turn my back for two min and all but a few of the algea tabs are gone!! Certianly had me in a panic for a few minutes though! HO HUM another trip to my LFS! He's in his kennel now and doing fine. Thanks again for the imput!

Should be just fine. I used to add some Hoki mix to my cat food which was mostly greens and included spirulina.
