Food supplements are additional powders and edible supplements that are fed to a pet to give them a mix of vitamins or minerals they are missing in their diet.

Insect food and care are used on live feed to ensure it is as healthy and nutritious as possible before being fed to your pet.

Finally, water treatments are used to keep water fresh for longer within your enclosure and add additional vitamins and minerals that your pet requires.
What should I look for when buying reptile health products?
The key to buying reptile health products is research. When purchasing your new pet, have your veterinarian or specialist at the pet store explain the body condition for your reptile species. As with many aspects of reptile, amphibian and invertebrate keeping, the most important thing is understanding the needs of your pet and then catering to them. Whether you're keeping turtles, tortoises, snakes or lizards, make sure your pet is getting plenty of vitamins or minerals that aren’t in its regular diet, especially if their reptile species are known to commonly have some sort of deficiency.
If you have had direct contact with a sick reptile or any affected animals, we recommend using antibacterial handwash to be safe. As not all reptiles carry zoonotic diseases so medical attention won't be necessary.
