Vitamin Deficiency


Most species of turtles have their own specific vitamin requirements. Calcium is a vital ingredient to having a healthy turtle as they require it to form their shell properly. Even when the turtle is fully grown calcium is still required to maintain the health of their shell.

Also, every turtle has their own requirements for food which should be followed very closely. Ensuring your turtle has a balanced diet is important not only to elminate vitamin deficiencies but also to ensure good overall health.

If you have concerns with your turtles vitamin intake the best idea is to take a look at our turtle care sheets or speak about it with your veterinarian.
