Repashy SuperCal HyD, 6 oz
Captive reptile diets are often low in calcium, which can cause health problems related to calcium deficiency. When reptiles don't receive adequate UVB lighting, they can also become vitamin D deficient. Reptiles that don't get enough calcium and/or vitamin D can develop life-threatening Metabolic Bone Disease (MBD).
Repashy SuperCal HyD is a micro-fine calcium supplement powder with high levels of vitamin D — 22,680 IU/kg. This makes it a suitable regular calcium supplement for use with reptiles that don't have UVB lighting in their enclosure or frequent access to unfiltered sunlight. Repashy SuperCal HyD can also be used to promote healing in reptiles recovering from MBD.
Repashy's calcium carbonate is mined from the Mohave Desert in California, where it was deposited 300 million years ago during the Mississippian Age as a large graveyard of marine animals. This calcium is micro ground to an average size of 3.5 microns, enabling it to stick extremely well to feeder insects.
Note: All reptiles can benefit from exposure to levels of high-quality UVB lighting appropriate to their species. It is highly advisable to provide UVB whenever possible. Browse our selection of the best UVB bulbs here!
