Rep-Cal Calcium with Vitamin D3, 3.3oz
Rep-Cal Ultrafine (fine grind) is an excellent source of calcium for all reptiles and amphibians. Scientifically formulated from human grade 100% natural Oyster Shell phosphorus-free calcium carbonate with added Vitamin D3 to aid in the absorption of calcium. Calcium deficiency is a major dietary problem of captive reptiles and amphibians. Maintaining a proper calcium:phosphorus (Ca:P) ratio in the diet of 1.5:1 is believed to be just as important nutritionally as an adequate Ca intake. The problem in most cases is an improper Ca:P ratio, not too little Ca. Ca:P ratios of common cultured food items are shockingly poor: Crickets 0.13:1, Meal Worms 0.06:1, Wax Worms 0.08:1, Pinky Mice 0.89:1. Using a calcium supplement that also adds phosphorus makes no sense as an adequate Ca:P ratio can never be achieved. Rep-Cal contains only 100% Natural human grade phosphorus-free oyster shell Calcium Carbonate for its calcium source.
