This is an excellent quality mineral supplement for carnivorous amphibians and reptiles produced by ZooMed. All reptiles and amphibians in captivity should receive a calcium supplement to ensure proper metabolism and skeletal development.
Repti Calcium is an ultra fine precipitate of calcium carbonate , free of lead and other contaminants. Since the diet we offer reptiles usually contains excess phosphorus and is deficient in calcium, this supplement provides only calcium, without phosphorus , to balance these minerals. It is a completely white powder, has a unique shape and a high surface area per gram of product, resulting in high bioavailability. Repti Calcium without D3 is a product free of impurities, since it is not made from ground oyster shells.
Use this supplement for reptiles or amphibians that achieve an adequate level of vitamin D3 on their own. This is achieved through prolonged daily exposure to direct sunlight or the use of UVB/UVA lamps in perfect condition. The contribution of vitamin D3 in the diet does not mean that animals do not need this special radiation.
- highly bioavailable calcium carbonate
- does not contain phosphorus
- free from harmful impurities
How to use
Sprinkle on food and mix well at a rate of ½ teaspoon of tea one to three times a week depending on the stage of growth. Younger animals that grow rapidly require a higher supply of calcium in their diets.
Repti Calcium without D3 is available in 85 and 227 gram bottles.
