This item has been DISCONTINUED. We recommend trying Rep-Cal
Rep-Cal Phosphorus-Free Calcium with VIT.D3 is great for all reptiles and amhibians. Calcium deficiency is a major dietary problem of captive reptiles and amphibians. Maintaining a proper calcium: phosphorus ratio in the diet is believed to be just as important nutritionally as an adequate Calcium intake. The problem in most cases is an improper Ca:P ratio, not too little Calcium. Ca;P ratios of common cultured food items are shockingly poor (eg:crickets, meal worms, waxworms, and pinky mice). Using a Calcium supplement that also adds phosphorus makes no sense as an adequate Ca:P ratio can never achieved. Bone Meal contains phosphorus. REP-CAL contains only 100% natural phosphorus-free oyster shell Calcium Carbonate for its calcium source. Pick up some Rep-Cal Phosphorus-Free Calcium with VIT.D3 for your reptile today.
Dosage: We ask that you mix Rep-Cal with our vitamin supplement Herptivite. If we premixed the products, the "beadlets" of beta carotene in Herptivite may possibly be damaged during manufacturing by the calcium in Rep-Cal. Mix with vegetables, fruits, and pastes approximately 1/2 tablespoon Rep-Cal with 1/2 tablespoon Herptivite per pound of food.
Ingredients: Calcium carbonate and vitamin D3 supplement.
