CROCdoc CalciBoost Powder
Liquid calcium supplement for addition to live foods.
A liquid calcium supplement for reptiles with added vitamin D3 for addition into drinking water or onto livefoods. It has the stamp of approval under the Small Animal Exemption Scheme.
Our calcium supplement Calcivet (CalciBoost in America) stops the most common deficiency in reptiles, calcium deficiency. Despite the tonnes of cuttlefish bone fed every year, calcium deficiency is still the biggest problem in reptile keeping!
A shortage of usable calcium lies at the root of many problems, including:
Most of the cuttlefish or calcium blocks which are supplied to try to raise calcium levels when eaten by the reptile goes straight out in the droppings. As with other minerals the difficulty is absorbing it into the bloodstream. So CROCdoc developed a super-saturated chelated calcium solution called Calcivet liquid. Calcivet (CalciBoost in America) uses a chelated mineral technology similar to the calcium supplied in nature by plants. So it is easily absorbed and quickly gets to the bones, nerves and muscles where it is needed. It is such an effective calcium source that most of the year you will only need it once or twice a week.
Key features: Ideal for breeding and growing reptiles. Calcium is involved in brain and nerve function and can improve behavioural problems.
