Calcium additives protect your reptile from a range of diseases and deficiencies, most notably metabolic bone disease. While the additives can be a little pricey, they last a long time as only a little needs to be added with each meal. Calcium additives are easy to use and an incredible boost to the health of your pet.
What are the main types of calcium additives?
We stock a wide range of calcium additives in different formulas and delivery methods. The formula of a calcium additive is important as some formulas are designed to just be used by a specific species or type of animal, each manufacturer has its own calcium formula which will be unique. The delivery method for calcium can be anything from a powder to an additional food supplement and even cuttlefish bones, each of which is more popular with some species than others.

When buying calcium additives, research your pet’s needs for calcium thoroughly and check to see if one method of calcium additive has proven effective in captivity for your pet’s species before.
