JurassiCal Dry (5.2 oz)-

Regular Price: $13.99 | $4.06

Quantity Available: 12

JurassiCal Dry powdered calcium supplement for reptiles and amphibians that does not contain phosphorus or Vitamin D3. As such, Josh's Frogs recommends using JurassiCal Dry powdered Calcium Suppmenet in conjuction with a UVB light source, which will allow your pet reptile or amphibian to product Vitamin D3. JurassiCal helps to achieve the proper calcium to phosphorus ratio.

 

Directions: BEGINNER: Lightly dust food before serving. Adheres best if food is already slightly moist. ADVANCED: Carnivores: Dust mammals and insects with 1 g (1/3 tsp.) for every 10 g (1/3 oz) of food. Dust boneless meat and gut loaded insects with 400 mg (1/8 tsp.) for every 10 g (1/3 oz) of food. Herbivores: Dust vegetables and fruits with 1 g (1/3 tsp.) for every 400 g (about 4 cups) of food. Use 2–4 times more for turtles and tortoises and to increase calcium deposition in breeding or gravid animals. EXPERT: Carnivores or Herbivores: Determine phosphorus and calcium content of the food and add according to desired Ca:P ratio. Values for common foods are available through selected reptile/amphibian references and on our website. To increase calcium content by 100 mg, add 250 mg (1/16 tsp.) of JurassiCal™. For example, if offering food that contains 200 mg of phosphorus and 20 mg of calcium and the desired Ca:P ratio is 2:1, you would need to add 380 mg calcium (1,000 mg (1/3 tsp.) of JurassiCal™). You can safely increase this amount to account for powder non-adherence loss during dusting. ADVICE: The following types of food interfere with calcium adsorption and should be avoided: phytates (soy), oxalates (spinach) and dog or cat foods.
