Hi guys

Might seem a silly question, but went with beaphar "reptile minerals" instead of neutrobal (shop was doing an offer on the former) and the back of the tub says you should be using the minerals daily. This is contrary to what ive been told. (for a leo)

Apart from dusting with pure calcium always, when should I be using these vitamins? Are they different to neutrobal?

Don't you mean 5 days calcium to 2 days Nutrobal?

I assume you mean the other way round. And I understand what the doses should be, my question was is if the beaphar vitamins are different. The dose says daily on the back of the tub, but i thought that was for too much!

For Beaphar reptile minerals:

Crude protein 0.8%; crude fat 0.5%; crude fibre 0%; ash 37.4%; moisture 20%; Calcium 14%; Phosphorus 4.3%; Sodium 0.6%; Magnesium 1.5%; Potassium 3.9%


Which leads me to believe... what the bloody hell is this stuff for!
