Multivitamin preparation for reptiles and amphibians with less vitamin
NEKTON-Multi-Rep has 12 vitamins, 9 amino acids, and 6 trace elements to
ensure your reptiles get the essential nutrients they need. This feed supplement
promotes strong bones, healthy growth, and prevents paralysis symptoms like leg
tightening. It's great for armor-bearing, non-molting reptiles and amphibians
because of its low concentration of vitamin A and well-balanced calcium -
phosphorus ratio. To prevent deficiencies, offer NEKTON-Multi-Rep at least once
a week. Do not use any other vitamin preparation while using NEKTON-Multi-Rep.
NEKTON-Multi-Rep is very similar to Nekton-Rep, except that it has a much
lower level of vitamin A, compared to NEKTON-Rep. This lower vitamin A level
makes it ideal for turtles and tortoises as it helps prevent skin, shell, bone,
and eye issues. It can be helpful in controlling the amount of vitamin A
supplementation in chameleons as well, in order to avoid vitamin A induced
metabolic bone disease. Advanced hobbyists will appreciate the ability to
customize vitamin A-levels, by alternating between NEKTON-Multi-Rep and NEKTON-
Rep. Such as when keeping and raising poison dart frogs.
Nekton-Multi-Rep is a soluble in cold water and can be administered in a
variety of ways, depending on what is best for the particular reptile or
amphibian. Nekton-Multi-Rep can be added to soft, moist food, it can be used to
dust feeder insects, it can be added to drinking water, and it can even be
injected under the skin of feeder animals. For amphibians spending a significant
portion of their life in water, it can simply be added to the terrarium water,
and they will absorb Nekton-Multi-Rep through their skin.
How to feed:
NEKTON-Multi-Rep is water-soluble and easy to administer via drinking water
or as a powder via food animals.
0.25 g (0.009 oz) of NEKTON-Multi-Rep per
kg (2.2 lbs) body weight daily, or 1.5 g (0.05 oz) once a week.
One level measuring spoon (enclosed) corresponds to 1 g (0.035 oz) of NEKTON-
Due to the higher content of vitamin D and trace elements compared to complete
feeds, this supplementary feed may only be fed to reptiles and amphibians up to
5% of the daily ration.
ADDED TO FEED
This is the simplest way. NEKTON-Multi-Rep can be mixed with the
reptile's plant or meat food: E.g., Tortoises - scatter a pinch of
NEKTON-Multi-Rep over chopped or shredded lettuce leaves after
wetting them slightly. Turtles - knead NEKTON-Multi-Rep into finely
chopped heart and form tiny balls that can then be fed by means
If the animals are fed on live fodder, it is better to dissolve the
NEKTON-Multi-Rep powder in water and inject this under the skin of
the animal used as fodder.
In the case of insect-eating reptiles and land amphibians put
the dose of NEKTON-Multi-Rep powder into a jar, let the insects in
and shake the jar. The insects are then covered in NEKTON-Multi-Rep and can be
fed to the animal as usual.
ADDED TO DRINKING WATER
This method is quite simple as NEKTON-Multi-Rep is soluble in cold
water and thus guarantees a full and reliable supply of vitamins
and trace elements.
For land reptiles add 1 gram NEKTON-Multi-Rep to a water ration of 1/4 litre and
this meets the animal's
vitamin needs completely. Use fresh water every day. At the
beginning remove all other drinking vessels so that the animal
is forced to use the one containing the vitamins. In time you will
find your pet prefers the water with NEKTON-Multi-Rep to its normal
ADDED TO TERRARIUM WATER
Amphibians living mostly in water can absorb the vitamins through
their skin or by swallowing the water. As a guide we recommend
a measuringspoonful (1 g) to 30 litres water (about 7 U.S.
NEKTON-Multi-Rep should be stored dry and out of sunlight, between 15°
and 25° C (59° and 77° F).
