Rep-Cal Calcium with Vitamin D3, 3.3oz
Feeder insects are notoriously low in calcium, an essential mineral for most animals, including reptiles and amphibians. By lightly dusting them with calcium just prior to feeding, you help correct this imbalance and make them more nutritious for your pet.
When reptiles don't have access to UVB, or their current UVB lighting is too weak, they can't make enough vitamin D3 to meet their body's needs. This can cause major, life-threatening health problems, including Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD). Dietary vitamin D3 supplementation helps reptiles that don't "require" UVB to survive without it.
Rep-Cal Ultrafine (fine grind) is a source of calcium for all reptiles and amphibians. Scientifically formulated from human grade 100% natural oyster shell, this powder supplement provides phosphorus-free calcium with added vitamin D3 for maximum benefit to your pet's health.
Rep-Cal is proudly made in the USA, and has been recommended by veterinarians and zoos around the world for over 30 years!
