Calcium is vital for bone growth and maintenance, muscle function, and metabolism of reptiles and amphibians. When blood calcium levels are to low, an animal may suffer muscle twitches and lethargy. Low blood calcium is also a very common cause of metabolic bone disease (MDB) in reptiles and amphibians. Their bodies utilize stored calcium from the bones to maintain proper blood level calcium. Without a constant supply, the body robs the calcium directly from the bones. Resulting in weak bones that are prone to breaking or fracturing.
Ranarium Cal Bee is a super fine calcium-based vitamin with a substantial amount of bee pollen added to make the product tastier for our pets creating a super food packed with trace minerals and amino acids to help maintain a robust immune system.
How to use Ranarium Cal Bee Calcium and Bee Pollen Supplement
Cal Bee should be used as a compliment mineral supplement to an already existing vitamin regimen. With one of the highest concentrations of bee pollen it is quite unique, tasty and full of vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and trace elements. Sprinkle it on food or lightly dust feeder insects before feeding animals.
We use a “shake and bake” method by placing a small amount of Cal Bee into a deli cup, then adding some flies. We then shake and swirl the container until the flies are fully coated. Once fully coated we feed them to our frogs and reptiles. Avoid dumping excess dust onto plants or into the enclosure. any remaining dust should not be put back into the original container as this may contaminate it.
Once opened, this product is good for approximately 6 months. You can extend its life by keeping it refrigerated between use.
