Vitamin A is vital for amphibians, especially frogs, to fully thrive, and ensuring they have the proper amount of Vitamin A that is required for immune function, reproduction, and cellular communication is really important. There are two forms for Vitamin A: preformed Vitamin A (i.e. retinol) and provitamin A carotenoids. Rana A is formulated with a high "retinol" Vitamin A concentration for your amphibians, along with some other superfoods.
Amphibians can't synthesize provitamin A, which results in an increased risk of Vitamin A deficiency for many in captivity, which is often described as "Short Tongue Syndrome". More recently, deficiencies in this essential micronutrient is referred to as 'Hypovitaminosis'. Numerous studies show the lack of Vitamin A causes poor vision, inability to catch prey, poor reproductive success, reduced offspring survival and also immune system dysfunction. A balanced diet and proper amount of Vitamin A has been known to play an important role in limb regeneration is some amphibians.
The use of Ranariums' proprietary Rana-A supplement is an essential, and proactive, component of providing a good diet, and ensuring optimum health for you amphibian.
Rana-A should be given to pets once a month as part of a rotational diet. If egg development is poor, it may be given every two weeks but for a limited amount of time. Over usage can cause Vitamin A toxicity. Use a small pinch to dust feeder insects before feeding to your animals.
