How are fluids and liquid medications administered to reptiles?
Reptile supplements and medications are typically administered orally, either by mixing them with food or using a syringe to deliver the medication directly into the mouth. Some reptile medications may also be applied topically, such as parasite sprays, shedding mists, and ointments. Ensure that you follow the instructions provided with the specific medication or supplement carefully to ensure it's administered correctly.
Why do reptiles need calcium supplements?
Calcium is an essential mineral that reptiles need to maintain healthy bone growth and development, muscle function, blood clotting, and nerve transmission. Without sufficient calcium intake, reptiles can develop metabolic bone disease; a condition that affects bone strength and structure. Since many reptile diets are deficient in calcium, adding a supplement to their food is a proactive measure you can take to ensure your pet receives an adequate amount.
