Biological Properties: Vitamin D3 is an essential nutritional factor that all animals require in small amounts for the absorption and metabolism of calcium and phosphorus. Vitamin D deficiency leads to softening and malformation of bones  and other structures dependent on calcium(egg shells, for example). It is also essential for successful reproduction.Excessive intake can result in symptoms of hypervitaminosis such as  loss  of  appetite,  nausea , excessive and thirst and  urinary calculi. Hypervitaminosis  is fully reversible by  withdrawing  the excessive vitamin D supplies.

Directions for use:
The amount of vitamin D3 required by each animal depends on its species, age and size. As a rough rule of  thumb, every animal should receive a daily supply of  1/2 -1 International Unit of vitamin D3 for  every gram  bodyweight . Using the dropping pipette
supplied with each bottle of oily supplement (the rubber teat should be removed from the point of the and used as a squeezy bulb on the wide end of the glass tube) one drop contains approximately 300 IU vitamin D
3 which is the amount needed each day by a marmoset monkey or by a lizard weighing about 1 lb or 500 grams.

Several  days'  supply can be given in one dose since it is stored in the body until required. Having calculated the appropriate number of drops or the frequency for supplying a single drop, use the dropping pipette to place the drop(s) on the food, or on its nose or face so that it licks it off. A daily supplement is ideal; intervals longer than once in 2 weeks should be avoided.
