    Recently Spottys multivitamins went expired and Im looking for good multivitamins for him other than Rep-Cal Multivitamins. Id been using Exo Terra Multivitamins for a couple years. Are they good?

    How old is Spotty now?

    I'd totally go with Zoo Med's supplements: Zoo Med Repti Calcium with D3 and Zoo Med Reptivite multivitamins without D3. Vitamin D3 has more room for error than does vitamin A acetate (retinol). That's one reason I prefer 2 separate supplements. Zoo Med's supplements also have healthy amounts of pure calcium carbonate mixed into their supplements. That's sometimes lacking in other brands.

    Here's why:

    Sometimes Zoo Med's Reptivite multivitamins are hard to find. The Reptile Supply Company (and Amazon) usually carry them.

    Here's a rundown on other supplements. I don't think Exo Terra supplements are particularly good.

    Here's a good schedule for Spotty:

    Weekly Schedule 126 for Leopard Geckos 18 months old +

    Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med Repti Calcium with D3
    Crickets or dubia >> Thursday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med ReptiVite multivitamins without D3
    Mealworms >> Saturday - no dusting

    Future weeks:
    Continue on since all weeks are identical. . . . . .
