Vitamin D Supplements

Woodstocks Oily Vitamin D3  Supplement is probably the most suitable for reptiles. One way of
determining the appropriate quantity is to determine the average weight of each reptile and work
out a daily or weekly supply, giving  1/2 -1  IU vitamin D
3 each day for each gram liveweight of a
reptile in normal health

Gravid reptiles need more vitamin D3 than males or resting females. Thus a 40 gram resting lizard
requires 20-40 IU/day, but the amount increases to 200 IU for reptiles producing eggs. It is impossible to
give less than 1 drop so 1 drop each week for the non-productive lizard and a drop every other day for
the egg-producer is the most suitable

Woodstocks Vitamin D3 Powder Supplement can be used by dusting crickets or other food insects with
the supplement
. It is much more difficult to give precise amounts but the amount of sugary powder that
sticks to the cricket is usually an appropriate quantity

Vitamin E Supplements
Again, the Woodstocks Oily Vitamin E Supplement is the most appropriate way to supply reptiles with
vitamin E. Reptiles' vitamin E requirements are believed to be quite low so the amount supplied should
be equivalent to half that of the vitamin D supplement shown above
. Use one drop of the oily vitamin E
supplement every 2 weeks for a 40 g lizard and commensurately more according to liveweight

Vitamin D3 + E Supplements
While vitamin D3 is essential for all reptiles in artificial environments and vitamin E is a beneficial "extra",
it is possible to supply the two vitamins in combination
, using Wood stocks D3 + E Powder Supplement.
This contains 500 IU vitamin D3 and 10 mg vitamin E per gram. It should be used in exactly the same
way as the vitamin D
3 powder supplement described above.

The oil used in the preparation of this  product is of superior blending  qualities and acceptability to monkeys and reptiles.The product has been tested for stability and shows good vitamin retention through the 6 months’shelf life.
