Why is Kelp sold elsewhere cheaper?
The old saying that you get what you pay for is very true here. Kelp absorbs its nutrients from surrounding water through the leaves. Kelp has roots but they only serve to anchor it to the ocean floor. Thus, poor water quality equals poor quality Kelp. Many species of Kelp are high in pollutants and heavy metals. Norwegian Kelp has been proven to be the highest quality Kelp available. You and your pet deserve the best!

My dog is vomiting/has diarrhea after giving him the kelp. What should I do?
First make sure you are feeding the correct dosage that is printed on the product label. If you are feeding the correct amount, reduce this amount to half. The Kelp is very high in nutrients and when you first start the supplement you should only feed half of the recommended dosage that is printed on the label. This happens very rarely and your pet will adjust to the Kelp quickly. This should not take more than 3 - 4 days at most.
