Calcium and Vitamin help!

Postby Emily7709 » Sat Jul 04, 2020 3:53 pm

Hello, I have a 3 month old dragon and I need help with what he needs. Right now I have ReptiCalcium without D3, Organic Multivitamin Powder with D3, and Probiotic Powder. Please let me know how much I should be giving him, which of each and if I need something else. (He also has a Reptisun 10.0 UVB bulb on 12 hours a day)

The calcium powders sound good but what is a probiotic powder? You need a vitamin given 2 x per week perferbly w/ beta carotene

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TPpR9sLecxM is the video I found that says to use probiotic powder (4:32). Would calcium (without D3) 3 days a week, and vitamins (with D3) 2 days a week be good?

That probiotic powder I can't comment on but the calcium what are you using for a UVB? There are Arcadia bulbs that have D3 so unless your not using one of those and your dragon is a baby he needs calcium D3 5 x per week and vitamins 2 x per week- it is recommended if your using a Arcadia bulb w/ D3 to use calcium w/out the D3 3 x per week- but you need vitamins w/ beta carotene 2x per week
You can see if Tracie our vet moderator wiil answer or ahbd- on the probiotic powder Tracie is on at nite
