    Hi,
    Just wondering if I should switch supplements?

    I am currently using RepCal Calcium and Vitamin D, Herptivite and Replashy Vitamin A
    Is it better to use all Replashy? Or Dendrocare? Something else?

    I think if you can, it's best to rotate all types of supplements.

    Personally I use Repashy Calc+ (all in one vitamin used every feeding), Repashy Vit A (twice per month) and Repashy Superpig (I mix a small amount into the calc plus and grind it up with a mortar and pestle)

    I wouldn't be opposed to adding dendrocare into that rotation, just haven't got around to it yet.

    I'm just getting back into it after a while without frogs, but the rotation I'll be using matches some of the other folks on the board:

    Repashy Calcium Plus at every feeding
    Repashy Vit A every two weeks
    Repashy Superpig thrown in for colour

    We use exclusively dendrocare. We have had awesome results . We have used it for about 2 years now. It is a complete supplement including all the vitamins minerals and color enhancers required for dart frogs. We also use it for all our tree frogs. Dendrocare Is specifically made for dart frogs in Holland and is a very fine powder that adhears well to insects.

    I have used dendrocare too. I just use the others now because they are easily accessible.

    Although from my understanding superpig has been discontinued. I could be wrong though.

    Now I'm curious about Dendrocare...

    I can't tell you if Superpig is discontinued or not, but I did just order some from Northern Gecko this afternoon.

    Maybe it's was just a certain size. Northern gecko was the one that had told me it was discontinued. Well anyway let's hope it's not true. Lol

    Well I found some info. From the repashy website "Superpig is finally back in stock after an ingredient shortage that made it unavailable for the whole year of 2016." So this is what may have caused the confusion.
