About This Product

Preformed Vitamin A, also known as Retinol, is a fat soluble vitamin that is vital to the well being of reptiles and amphibians. Availability of Vitamin A is vital for your pet's health, and it's ability to produce healthy offspring. Specifically with frogs, additional supplementation of Vitamin A has been shown to reduce incidents of spindly leg, short tongue syndrome, and what is commonly known as 'bad eggs' - eggs that fail to develop into healthy tadpoles. At Josh's Frogs, we supplement all of our breeder frogs with Repashy Vitamin A one to two times a month, with great results.

VITAMIN A PLUS MICRO-FINE VITAMIN A SUPPLEMENT: Our Micro Fine Vitamin A Supplement for Reptiles and Amphibians. Contains Preformed Vitamin A as well as natural ingredients which provide beta carotene.

INFORMATION: Preformed Vitamin A (Retinol) is an essential fat soluble vitamin that in nature comes from animal sources only. Plant sources of Vitamin A such as Beta Carotene and other Carotenoids must be converted into this active animal form to be utilized by the body. Carotenoids can be converted into Retinol by some species given optimal conditions but it has been shown that deficiencies can develop if Preformed Vitamin A is not directly provided in the Retinol form. This Supplement provides Preformed Vitamin A in the form of a spray dried water dispersible Retinyl Acetate powder in combination with natural sources of Beta Carotene derived from algae.

INGREDIENTS: Calcium Carbonate, Fructose Powder, Cellulose Powder (as carriers), Chlorella Algae, Spirulina Algae, Calcium Propionate, Retinyl Acetate, Rosemary and Mixed Tocopherols (as preservatives). Guaranteed Analysis: Vitamin A (as Retinyl Acetate) 2,000,000 IU/lb.

DIRECTIONS: This product contains high levels of preformed Vitamin A (Retinol). As a regular supplement, it should not be used more than once every other week by “dusting” insects, or sprinkling on vegetables at a level of one teaspoon per pound. It can be used therapeutically in higher or more frequent doses to reverse Vitamin A deficiency (Hypovitamintosis A) under Veterinary prescription. Retinol and other fat soluble vitamins such as Vitamin E and Vitamin D3 can build up in the body. Prolonged over supplementation can lead to toxicity (Hypervitamintosis A) and overdose or kill your specimens.

Nice Supplement

I feed this supplement once a month to my frogs, and it has been going well. This is a highly quality supplement, and I take comfort knowing that my frogs are receiving the nutrition that they need.

Necessary for juvenile pacman frogs!

I will be using this for my juvenile pacman frog once a month. The vitamin A coated the crickets well when I dusted them. As for flavor, my froggo didn't mind the flavor at all. :) Be wary of your usage though because excess Vitamin A toxicity is lethal. Don't let that dissuade you from purchasing this since Vitamin A is necessary for a healthy pacman frog. Vitamin A deficiency is also just as lethal. With that said, create a calendar and keep track of your supplement/feeding regimen to keep your frog happy and healthy!
