Reptile 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. If your pet requires some type of vitamin or supplement, that is not an indication that you’re not doing a great job of feeding him. After all, 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 on hand, you can provide your reptilian pet the added nutrients he may need to thrive and live a long healthy life. Zen Pet Supplies’ online store carries a vast 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 ones in our current inventory, and let us know if you can’t find exactly what you’re looking for.
When reptiles suffer from a calcium deficiency, unfortunately, you can’t get them a nice cold glass of milk to drink; instead, you have to give them a calcium supplement. In fact, calcium deficiency is a common problem in many reptiles and amphibians like turtles. 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, and be sure you read these instructions very carefully. Too much of a good thing—like calcium—can actually cause more harm than good. Also, we recommend that you don’t give your pet reptile any vitamins or supplements until speaking to a trained reptile caretaker or veterinarian. If you’re certain your pet is suffering from a vitamin or mineral deficiency, make sure you administer the correct dose, and watch your pet carefully after he takes the supplement. If you notice any adverse reactions or changes in behavior, please stop the supplement immediately and contact a vet.

We carry other health and wellness products like shedding aids for reptiles, water conditioners, eye drops and sludge destroyer. For our sale price of under $15, you can purchase HERPTIVITE, a multi-vitamin, multi-mineral and amino acid food supplement developed from the most up-do-date research in reptile and amphibian nutrition. Its formula contains only natural ingredients rich in essential trace minerals and elements your reptiles need to thrive. As you’ll read when you click on this particularly popular product, HERPTIVITE contains exact levels of vitamins and minerals that work in a perfect balance to ensure the proper amount of protein and other essential nutrients for growth, reproduction, maintenance and other reptile bodily functions. HERPTIVITE is the first reptile vitamin without Vitamin A; instead, it has Beta Carotene, a powerful anti-oxidant that is converted to Vitamin A in a controlled way, so there’s no chance of Vitamin A toxicity. Again, too much of a good thing, like Vitamin A, can be harmful. HERPTIVITE ensures your pet doesn’t get too much of any one particular vitamin or mineral. These are just a few of the reasons this amazing product is a top choice amongst reptile owners. Check out these and other reptile vitamins and supplements right here on the Zen Pet Supplies website.
