- We use our Carolina Handy Shakers to dispense these necessary supplements on our bearded dragons’ daily salads after misting with water. This way the Rep-Cal Calcium with D3 or Herptivite Multivitamin sticks to the salad. We feel that our dragons injest a greater amount more effectively this way than the alternate method of dusting their insect feeders. The insect feeders are moving around so much that they lose much of the Calcium or Herptivite before the dragon or other reptile gets around to eating them. Plus this is a more efficient use of the Rep-Cal Calcium with D3 and the Rep-Cal Herptivite Multivitamins.
- We use the Carolina Handy Shaker of Calcium with D3 six days a week (right on the label). We use the Carolina Handy Shaker of Herptivite Multivitamin one day a week (right on the label). Pick a day, for example Sunday, and that becomes “vitamin day”.
- Rep-Cal Calcium with D3 (phosphorous-free, ultrafine powder) is an excellent source of calcium for all reptiles and amphibians. This has been scientifically-formulated from 100% natural Oyster Shell, phosphorous-free, calcium carbonate with the addition of vitamin D3 to aid in the absorption of calcium.
- Rep-Cal Herptivite Multivitamin is a superior multi-vitamin, multi-mineral and amino acid food supplement; developed from the latest findings in reptile and amphibian nutritional research. Its formulation contains all-natural source ingredients with a base of “sea vegetation.” Unlike other companies which use non-nutritional “bases,” Rep-Cal’s “sea vegetation” base is rich in essential trace elements and minerals. Furthermore, Herptivite contains precise levels of vitamins and minerals combined in perfect balance to ensure correct utilization of protein and other essential nutrients for growth, reproduction, maintenance and many aspects of your reptile’s bodily functions. Herptivite is the first reptile vitamin without vitamin A. Instead Rep-Cal uses Beta Carotene which is an anti-oxidant that is converted into vitamin A in a regulated way, so there is no threat of Vitamin A toxicity.
- Each of the Carolina Handy Shakers and each of the refills contain 2.3 ounces of Rep-Cal Calcium with D3 or Rep-Cal Herptivite Multivitamin; that’s 4.6 ounces of each. Dragons and their salads shown in the photos are not included. Carolina Custom Cages is a division of Carolina Designer Dragons, LLC.
