Abstract

Black soldier fly (BSF) larvae have been marketed as an excellent choice for providing calcium to reptiles without the need of dusting or gut loading. However, previous studies have indicated that they have limited calcium digestibility and are deficient in fat soluble vitamins (A, D3, and E). In...

Abstract

Vitamin D is an important regulator of calcium and phosphorus homeostasis in animals. It can be acquired from the diet or synthesised de novo when skin is exposed to UVb. Vitamin D deficiency can lead to a complex of diseases collectively called metabolic bone disease (MBD). Diurnal lizards without ...

Abstract

The pathogenesis of steatitis that infrequently occurs in cold-stunned Kemp's ridley sea turtles (KRT; Lepidochelys kempii) has been undetermined. The objectives of this study were to investigate the clinical (n = 23) and histologic findings (n = 11) in cold-stunned KRT, and to compare plasma...

Abstract

Metabolic bone disease associated with inadequate calcium (Ca) and vitamin D supply is still considered very important disease factors of reptiles in captivity. The aim of this study was to compare the effects of oral cholecalciferol supplementation vs. UVB exposure in bearded dragons (Pogona spp.) ...

Abstract

Many reptiles require ultraviolet-B radiation between 290 and 315 nm (UV-B) to synthesize vitamin D3 and process dietary calcium. In captivity, exposure to too little or too much UV-B can result in health problems such as metabolic bone disease. While it is recognized that UV-B is necessary to...

Abstract

Background: Metabolic bone disease (MBD) is considered the most prevalent disease of reptiles in captivity. The lack of cholecalciferol in the diet and/or the lack of suitable UV-B-light (natural or artificial form) are the most important causes (nutritional MBD). Objectives: The authors of this...
