    Default What do you use for dusting?


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    I知 trying to figure out what the best dusts to use are. I use herptivite, and zoomed rn, but I did just get some reptashy calcium plus dust in today (I bought it thinking it was gutloading stuff. It was not.)

    I want to use what would be considered the most nutritious for my babies, and I have been corrected here for things that I知 grateful for (like how I learned that using fulkers gutloading food was not the greatest) so I want y誕lls opinions of you don稚 mind.

    Let us know how old your leo(s) are. I have 3 different Zoo Med supplement schedules and a separate Repashy's Calcium Plus multivitamin schedule.

    I prefer Zoo Med's supplements.

    Weekly Schedule 124 for Leopard Geckos 0-12 months old
    (without UVB)

    • Crickets or dubia >> Monday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3
    • Mealworms >> Tuesday
    • Crickets or dubia >> Wednesday - lightly dusted with pure precipitated calcium carbonate without D3 (Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW human brand calcium)
    • Crickets or dubia >> Thursday
    • Crickets or dubia >> Friday - lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins without D3
    • Mealworms >> Saturday
    • No food or free choice >> Sunday

    Weekly Schedule 125 for leopard geckos 12-18 months old
    (without UVB)

    Powdered supplement recommendations for leopard geckos 12-18 months old depend upon how much your leo has grown thus far and whether he/she is walking strongly. Leos usually reach maximum size at about 18 months old.

    Feed lightly dusted prey 3x per week.

    Thank you for being so, so, patient. I've not forgotten Citrine's weekly schedule when using UVB. Here goes.

    Do you have Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins with or without vitamin D3?

    UVB Weekly Schedule 155 for leopard geckos 12-18 months old
    (with UVB)

    Powdered supplement recommendations for leopard geckos 12-18 months old depend upon how much your leo has grown thus far and whether he/she is walking strongly. Leos usually reach maximum size at about 18 months old.

    When your leopard gecko is taking advantage of appropriate UVB rays, Dr. Fran Baines (vet & lighting guru) strongly recommends a backup dose of powdered D3 @ 1 feeding per month! Just substitute 1 D3 calcium dusting for 1 plain calcium dusting that week only.
