Default nutrobal for leos

i know it says to dust feed with, but can it be used for a dip for inside the viv.

or do i need to go buy pure calcium?

also nutrobal smells really funky

Has to be pure calcium in the viv as nutrobal has vitamin D3 in it as well and it is possible to have too much D3 in the diet which can be harmful.

Not sure on the current regime or sources of calcium as I dont own leos anymore, probably best to post in the lizard section as the vits/calcium/feeding is always confusing.

dust with nutrobal twice a week and pure calcium 5 times a week. you dont have to buy calcium powder. i buy cuttlefish bones and grind them up in a pestle and mortar and have never had any problems. when i started doing this i did ask if it was OK
