Description

Calci dust is a rich Calcium supplement for Tortoises. Made with 100% natural, phosphorus-free Calcium carbonate, it helps to prevent the chance of Metabolic Bone Disease in tortoises. Calcium is an essential element in a tortoise's diet. In the wild, these sweet herbivores attempt to obtain as much Calcium as possible. Calcium can be found in certain plants, rocks, substrates or even snail shells.

Because tortoises are kept as pets nowadays, Calcium isn't so readily available to them within the four walls of their enclosure. This means that it is our responsibility as their owners to ensure they receive as much Calcium as possible. Calci Dust is an easy and healthy way of ensuring tortoises receive the right amount of Calcium in their diet. 100% natural with no additives, it will help to strengthen their shell and promote healthy growth. Without Calcium, tortoises can develop Metabolic bone disease, 'shell rot' and other minor injuries. Not only that, but a Calcium imbalance can affect the vitality of their life, leading to depression, lethargy and general weakness.

Combining this delightful dust with the correct balance of UVB and heat levels will give you a happy, healthy tortoise. Large quantities are not needed; a sprinkling over vegetables and plants will do. Calci dust is an absolute must for your charming shelled-friend.

500g

Directions for use:
Calci dust can be used to supplement vegetable food for tortoises and all other herbivorous reptiles, to provide essential dietary Calcium. As it is not possible to overdose with Calci Dust it can be used at every feed. Sprinkle freely over food immediately before feeding. Large quantities are not required, due to the 100% concentration. It is best to avoid smothering the food as they may find it unpalatable. If acceptance is a problem, start feeding very low levels and gradually increase.

Most reptiles can absorb calcium from their food only in the presence of Vitamin D3. It is essential that UVB light, of the correct wavelength and intensity, is provided to enable D3 synthesis, or that oral D3 is supplied. It is recommended that a vitamin/mineral supplement is used in conjunction with Calci Dust.
