    You can give any brand of calcium ascorbate and it will be almost identical to Ester-C. It's less likely to cause upset stomach and diarrhea in dogs compared to ascorbic acid. However if you are giving the therapeutic doses of calcium ascorbate (500-1000 mg/day) it will increase oxalate excretion in urine and increase rink of oxalate stones in some dogs. It might be a good idea to get dog's urine tested if you are supplementing with the bigger doses.

    Vit C is ascorbic acid. Ester C is basically metabolites which is dehydroascorbic acid and calcium threonate.Makers of Ester C will say its higher quality than regular Vit C. There is no proven facts that supports this theory anywhere. Only this EC is not as harsh on the stomach. So if you have no stomach issues, stick to Vit C. Your wallet will be happier!

    Thank you I will look for that. I have been a big advocate of vit c and think for my dog I would want the extra stomach protection for them. I haven't added to this boy, but will look up and see if I'm already od'ing him on it already lol

    If you give Hank 1/2 tsp per day of the Actiflex 4000 he is getting 167 mg day already, and if you are giving him 3/4 tsp he is getting 250 mg. So you probably don't need to supplement him any more.
