PangeaCal Calcium plus Trace Minerals (Without D3)- 3oz
Availability: In stock
PangeaCal Calcium (Without D3) supplement is made of the highest quality ingredients, and is great for egg-laying females and/or reptiles kept outdoors with exposure to natural sunlight. This Phosphorous-free, D3-free, ultra fine ultra pure calcium supplement contains trace minerals from kelp and spirulina algae, and is ideal for dusting feeder insects. Simply place live feeder insects into a plastic bag or cup, add enough calcium to lightly coat the items (just a dusting….we’re not trying to batter and fry them), gently shake the bag or cup until items are evenly coated with the powder, & promptly feed to your reptiles. You can also add a dish of this powder to your reptile’s enclosure for them to lick freely from.*
But my Gecko eats a complete and balanced frugivore diet…why do I need to offer supplements?
While the gecko diets we sell are whole and balanced with an ideal ratio of Calcium to Phosphorus, any time your gecko eats a food item that contains Phosphorous, it must be countered with an equal amount of Calcium to process it. And guess what those feeder insects are loaded with? That’s right, Phosphorous. It is absolutely essential that feeder insects be dusted with a quality calcium powder immediately prior to being fed to your reptile. Also keep in mind that any fresh fruit treats offered to your frugivorous reptiles may have a Ca:P ratio that is not ideal. Its important to know the nutritional content of the fresh fruits you may offer as treats, and to supplement with Calcium accordingly
PangeaCal is available With and Without D3, to suit the needs of the reptile you are feeding. We understand diets can vary depending on each reptile, so this is why we offer Calcium both with and without Vitamin D3. It is important that you understand your pet’s unique dietary needs when offering calcium supplement, as too much or too little D3 in the diet can cause complications.
This section is for purchasing PangeaCal WITHOUT D3. If you would like to purchase PangeaCal with D3 or if you require both with and without D3, you can find those other options in our Gecko Goodies/Supplements section.
*When offering a dish a calcium for your pet to self-supplement, please make sure you are using Calcium WITHOUT D3. Vitamin D3 is fat soluble and can be over-supplemented if offered to freely lick from a dish
