Swell Reptiles Calcium Dust comes in 250g tubs to give you an easy way to supplement your reptiles diet with a little more calcium.
Calcium is an essential component in the diet of all reptiles. It's the substance their bones are made from, and in the case of turtles and tortoises, their shells too. A Calcium deficiency in reptiles can cause serious problems, leading to things like MBD (Metabolic Bone Disease), which can cause painful joint problems, deformities, soft-shells and can even lead to death.
This makes calcium supplements such as this Swell Calcium Dust an essential item for ensuring your reptile gets enough, along with a good source of D3 to help your reptile assimilate the calcium into their system.
This product can be given to your reptile in a variety of ways. Most commonly, it is simply sprinkled onto their live food - or into their food bowl. Luckily, it is not exactly possible for your reptile to overdose on calcium - though a light dusting is the recommended portion.
This is Swell Reptile's own Calcium dust, and favour's nicely in both quality and price to other leading brands. As with all calcium supplements, this should be used with correct lighting to get the optimum from it.
