Turtle Health and Wellness Products

One of the most enjoyable (and sometimes challenging) aspects of being a caretaker of a non-traditional pet is setting up and maintaining his habitat. It’s easy to get your house ready for a dog or a cat, but when it comes to reptiles and amphibians, there’s a bit more involved with preparing for his arrival. For this reason, we recommend you set up his habitat before you bring him home because you can’t really just let your reptile roam free throughout the home as you set up his environment. Some items you’ll need immediately like his terrarium, food, water & food dishes and substrate, but other items can be purchased after your pet has arrived at your home. Turtle health and wellness products are some of those items that you will need but may not need right away. We highly recommend that once you are all settled in with your pet that you stock up on some of the most common health and wellness products that turtles will need throughout their lifespan. You never know when your pet turtle will need some type of remedy for an ailment that comes on suddenly, and the more products you keep stockpiled in your home, the better the chances of providing your pet the care he needs. Zen Pet Supplies’ online store carries a number of turtle health and wellness products to help you help your pet at the first sign of trouble.

    Food-Packaged Single pack banquet block for aquatic turtles. Giant size. Food & calcium in one block. Contains zoo med natural aq, turtle pellets.
In our current inventory, we carry a number of medications and vitamins & supplements your turtle may need. Keep in mind that having to administer vitamins and supplements to your pet does not mean you have not fed him properly. In fact, think about humans. We often need vitamins and supplements even when we eat a healthy, well-balanced diet. The same is true for turtles and other such animals. Because the body takes in and metabolizes nutrients in different ways and at different speeds, supplements are sometimes necessary through no fault of your own. One of the supplements we carry is Dr. Turtle’s Calcium Block, a slow-release calcium block that conditions water while providing a calcium supplement to promote healthy shell growth for water-dwelling turtles. By following the directions on the label and adding a tiny bit to your turtle’s water bowl, you will give him the calcium boost he may need. Before administering any vitamins, supplements, or medications to any reptile or amphibian, please consult your vet, especially if you’re not sure what’s wrong with your pet. Too much of a good thing (like calcium) can actually do more harm than good.

We also carry a few medications for turtles including an eye rinse made by Fluker’s, one of the most trusted and well-known brands when it comes to reptile health and wellness products. This eye rinse is a non-irritating solution with antimicrobials that’s used to treat and prevent bacterial infections in turtles and other reptiles. Common eye infections may result in swollen eyelids, discharge and impaired vision. We also have an economical three-pack ReptoGuard that helps control common waterborne diseases like salmonella and other ailments that, if left untreated, can be fatal. Keep your pet turtle in good physical health and emotional wellbeing by keeping a variety of vitamins, supplements and medications on hand should he become ill.
