If you have a look on the ingredients at the back, does it have D3 listed? If so, how much per gram or per kg?
thanks for the reply and it dosent have a list of ingredient or anything this is all it says on it

I use nutrabol for vatamins and d3 on saturdays and sundays.
I then use komodo cricket dust monday to friday for all my dragons.
It is made of 99% natural pure calcium carbonate. It says komodo cricket dust is an essential suppliment for insect eating speciessuch as bearded dragons leopard geckos chameleons and amphibians such as horned frogs.
This dust must be combined with uvb lighting and a supplimentary d3 suppliment. Readily accepted and easily absorbed.
I think it used to be called c alypso dust but changed its name.

Exellent stuff, never had a problem with it and all our dragons are in exellent health. i would recommend it

All i can tell from a few minutes googling is this...

It looks like the product you've mentioned has very little D3. The reasons i think this are

1 - they also sell the same product but entitled 'with vitamin D3'

2 - The description says...

'It is the ideal supplement for animals receiving natural or artificial UVB light or that otherwise do not require higher amounts of additional D3'

Seems to suggest its more suited to reptiles who either dont need D3, or dont need additional D3 as its provided elsewhere by another means.

Hope this helped : victory:
