    I wonder why they add calcium and potassium, they must feel there isn't enough already. They are a young company so maybe they haven't got everything correct. This is just my opinion of course.

    *I usually pick out the dried carrot bits as I don’t want the buns to have them
    If you're picking out the carrot, then you might want to consider getting something different or not bothering: molasses and beetroot are also basically sugar. 'Hay', 'bran' and 'straw' are nebulous. There's two types of sunflower listed which is weird. There's a lot of oils in it: olive leaves are oily IIRC, sunflower obviously depending n what bots are used, seeds (wheat and barley) contain oils, and then there's soya oil. I don't see anything particularly worrying in the elemental additives but I don't really know much about that bit. You could always try the dried herbs in place of this?

    Volvic is low in calcium, so there's nothing more you can do on the water you give.

    I'm suspicious that there is no calcium analysis on the website. Is there anything on the bag? There is normally a percentage given. Dry forage is usually pretty high in calcium.
