Subject: JOAN - have you seen this???
In reply to: Joan 's message, "Re: Vitamins and Supplements?" on 21:09:11 11/05/06 Sun

Joan - have you seen this? What do you think? Would this make a good alternative to the Repti-cal that some flyers seem to want nothing to do with (from what I've read...) It has NO smell that I can detect whatsoever from sniffing it in the store...sniffing it until I thought someone would come escort me out!!! ha ha!!! (trying to smell the "mango scent" that it says on the front of the bottle that it has...but I could not detect ANY scent whatsoever!!!) Here it is....your thoughts please???

ESU Iguana Calcium Spray contains the correct calcium/phosphorous (2:1) and vitamin D3 ratios to encourage maximal growth and development in Green Iguanas and all herbivorous reptiles. All ingredients in this preparation are present in forms that are rapidly absorbed and assimilated for immediate benefits to the animal. The convenient spray allows easy application and superior adhesion to food.

Spray directly onto food (e.g., vegetables, fruits and formulated diets). Allow spray to dry for 15 seconds.
