Vitamin and mineral topics


This is our 'specialist area' and all sorts of questions are asked, the majority relate to reptiles, especially tortoises.

Our normal advice is that youngsters need Nutrobal most days they are fed, and Calci Dust on the rest - if growing rapidly then they should receive it daily - BUT PLEASE TRY TO GROW TORTOISES SLOWLY. Rapid growth combined with low humidity issues contributes greatly to pyramiding, wild tortoises are used to low quality scrub as food, not the best of the supermarket fruit and veg counter.

Many, many thanks -

 I am not sure of which staff member dealt with my order for chloramine T, but I would just like to say a massive thank-you for getting the item in the post as quickly as she did. To my mind her actions were above and beyond the normal call of duty and I really appreciate it.


Avi-sol Vitamin solution - great for ex battery hens! -

 I've been using avi-sol vitamin supplement in my work re-homing ex battery hens. It's proven to be a valuable resource in supporting particularly weak and vulnerable hens through rehabilitation. Highly recommended to anyone wanting to help ex battery hens.
