    I also use Rep-Cal and am happy with it. However, for higher demand animals such as gravid females or sick individuals needing extra calcium I use a liquid supplement (Calcium Sandoz) on food or in drinking water.

    There am no better brand than Rep-Cal !! As CND says Sandoz is good but I think only able to get more into your animals because it is easier to get more into the prey item with it being a liquid.

    rep-cal calcium is a good calcium, it's oyster shell based .. and it has been used for years.

    Lately though there have been several newer calcium supplements that seem to work a little better. these are much "stickier" meaning you dont have to use as much, water soluable and more available to the animal that oyster shell based calciums.
