>From what I've been able to gather at the Proden PlaqueOff website and
elsewhere, the 'algae D1070', the main ingredient, is kelp, harvested in
Norway, also known as a 'brown algae', and also known by the name
Ascophyllum nodosum:

The only warning given relates to the iodine content of kelp. This is from
the Proden website, in the FAQ section:

"Algae contain iodine. Normally, iodine is a healthy and important part of
an animal’s diet. However, in animals with hyperthyroidism, which is very
rare in dogs, iodine should be avoided. The animal’s entire diet should be
monitored as many foods contain iodine. PlaqueOff Animal has not been tested
on pregnant or nursing animals, and should therefore be avoided during this

Are ferrets more sensitive to hyperthyroidism than dogs, cats, or other
