Lizard and Bearded Dragon Vitamins and Supplements

Just as with any living thing, sometimes a well-balanced diet is just not enough to provide your pet all of the vitamins, minerals and nutrients he needs to thrive. A pet need a vitamin or supplement is not really an indication that he’s not getting the proper foods he needs to live a health life. Even the healthiest humans and animals sometimes require a supplement of some type due to the body’s inability to process, absorb or metabolize the right amount of nutrients. By keeping some vitamins and supplements for reptiles in your home, you can provide your reptile the added nutrients he may need to get the nutrients he needs and live a long healthy life. Zen Pet Supplies’ online store carries a large selection of reptile vitamins and supplements, and most of these products are very inexpensive—many under $10. If you need a reptile vitamin or supplement, be sure to check out the selection in the Zen Pet Supplies’ online store.
When reptiles suffer from a calcium deficiency, you can’t just give them milk and other calcium-rich drinks and foods. Calcium deficiency is a common problem in many reptiles and amphibians like turtles, and we carry a number of calcium supplements in easy-to-administer forms like powder and liquid. The directions for administration are on the product label, so be sure you read these product directions very carefully. Too much of a good thing—like calcium—can actually be dangerous; so don’t over-dose your pet with calcium supplements. Also, we recommend that you don’t give your pet reptile any vitamins or supplements until consulting a trained reptile veterinarian. If you’re certain your pet is suffering from a vitamin or mineral deficiency, please administer the correct dose, and watch your reptile carefully after he takes the supplement. If you notice any adverse reactions or changes in behavior, please stop the supplement immediately and call your veterinarian.
