ProRep Tortoise Life Calci Dust is made from natural calcium carbonate and is an excellent way to provide essential calcium and avoid deficiency diseases.
It’s micro-fine particle size ensures excellent adhesion to plant material.
To supplement vegetable matter for tortoises and other herbivorous reptiles simply sprinkle over food immediately before feeding. It is not possible to overdose using Calci Dust and it can be used to supplement at every feed.
However, as some animals find large quantities of it unpalatable avoid smothering the food. Because this product is 100% calcium carbonate, large quantities are not required to provide adequate calcium levels. If acceptance is a problem then start with very low levels of supplementation and gradually increase it until your animals are used to the taste.
Most reptiles and amphibians can only absorb calcium from their food in the presence of vitamin D3. It is essential that adequate UVB light of the correct wavelength and intensity is provided to enable D3 synthesis by the animal or that oral D3 is supplied. It is recommended that a vitamin/mineral supplement is also used in conjunction with calci Dust.
