    I would not be using *any* calcium supplements in a Golden at this age unless you are feeding a raw meat diet. The rationale is that calcium is known to increase the incidence of metabolic bone disease in growing dogs (which he will be doing for another six months). The phosphorus present in red meat however should be balanced with additional calcium. The amount uou should use depends on the makeup of the diet.
