Follow manufacturer's guidelines. cDefluorinated phosphate or mono-dicalcium phosphate. If available, can be substituted for dicalcium phosphate. If substitution is made, however, diets must be reformulated because these products do not contain the same concentrations of calcium and phosphorus as dicalcium phosphate. dAmounts shown are typical for many commercial products. Follow manufacturer's guidelines.
