ProRep Calci Dust 200g
ProRep Calci Dust 200g –
ProRep Calci Dust is a supplement for reptiles and amphibians. It is 100% natural calcium carbonate with no additives, due to this it is an excellent way to provide essential calcium and avoid deficiency diseases. Additionally, it’s micro-fine particle size ensures excellent adhesion to both live insects and plant material.
Calcium forms an essential part of the diet of all reptiles and amphibians. Many foods that people use to feed them in captivity are low in this essential mineral or may have high levels of Phosphorus, which can inhibit the uptake of calcium.
To supplement vegetable matter for tortoises and other herbivorous reptiles, simply sprinkle over food immediately before feeding.
However, to supplement insects, you then place a small amount in a plastic bag with the insects and shake gently. Then, feed them immediately while the Calci Dust is still sticking to the insects.
To aid feeding, you can in fact cool the insects before applying the Calci Dust, slowing them down and ensuring that they are quickly eaten.
While it is not possible to overdose using Calci Dust and you can use it to supplement at every feed. You can however make it unplalatable for some animals by overloading it, due to this, avoid smothering it on the food.
Additionally, because this product is 100% calcium carbonate, you do not require large quantities to provide adequate calcium levels.
If acceptance is a problem then start with very low levels of supplementation and gradually increase it until your animals are used to the taste.
Most reptiles and amphibians can only absorb calcium from their food in the presence of vitamin D3.
It is essential that adequate UVB light of the correct wavelength and intensity is provided to enable D3 synthesis by the animal or that oral D3 is supplied.
It is recommended that a vitamin/mineral supplement is also used in conjunction with Calci Dust.
