What are vitamins and minerals?
Vitamins are naturally occurring substances that animals need to fuel biological processes and growth. Minerals are other chemicals animals need for nutrition like sodium and calcium. Most animals get the majority of their vitamins and minerals from food and water by eating a varied diet, however, it can be hard for animals to get everything they need from their food in captivity, especially if they are served the same selection of meals. To help with this, pets must be given vitamin and mineral supplements which help to round out their diets.
Why should I buy vitamins and minerals?
If your reptile, amphibian or invertebrate is regularly eating the same meals, chances are that they aren’t getting everything they need nutritionally. Eventually, this can result in a variety of diseases and deficiencies that can be very harmful to your pet’s health. By using the right vitamin and mineral supplements you can ensure the health of your pet and their growth in the future.
What are the main types of vitamins and minerals?
There are many different vitamin and mineral supplements on the market that can be differentiated by their formula and delivery method. The formula of a supplement will change depending on the manufacturer, with each having its own secret recipes and processes, but it can also be targeted at specific species. Supplements come in a wide variety of delivery methods too, they can be food pellets, powders and even drops, some are better for specific species while others are generally used.
What should I look for?
The needs of your reptile, amphibian or invertebrate are at the heart of any vitamin and mineral purchase. We recommend thoroughly researching what your pet needs and what they are getting from their staple diet then filling the gap with a vitamin and mineral supplement with a delivery method your pet enjoys.
