Rep-Cal HERPTIVITE is a superior multi-vitamin, multimineral and amino acid food supplement developed from the latest findings in reptile and amphibian nutritional research. Its formulation contains all natural source ingredients with a base of "sea vegetation." Unlike other companies which use non-nutritional "bases," Rep-Cal's "sea vegetation" base is rich in essential trace elements and minerals.\n \nFurthermore, HERPTIVITE contains precise levels of vitamins and minerals combined in perfect balance to ensure correct utilization of protein and other essential nutrients for growth, reproduction, maintenance and many aspects of your reptile's bodily functions. HERPTIVITE is the first reptile vitamin without Vitamin A. Instead we use Beta Carotene which is an anti-oxidant that is converted into Vitamin A in a regulated way, so there is no threat of Vitamin A toxicity. Make Rep-Cal's HERPTIVITE the dietary supplement of choice for your reptiles.\n \nDosage: It is recommended that you mix Rep-Cal Calcium with Herptivite. If the products were premixed, the "beadlets" of beta carotene in Herptivite may possibly be damaged during manufacturing by the calcium. Mix with vegetables, fruits, and pastes approximately 1/2 tablespoon Rep-Cal with 1/2 tablespoon Herptivite per pound of food. \n Before feeding insects: \n1) Thoroughly mix a 1:1 ratio of Rep-Cal Calcium and Herptivite in a plastic bag or cup.\n 2) Place insects in the bag/cup.\n 3) Shake slowly until they are completely covered.\n No other supplementation is required.\n \nContains no added starch, sugar, soy preservatives, artificial coloring, flavoring, or fragrance. Consult your veterinarian for any special nutritional problems or advice.
