Though reptomin is used by many people, I myself have never been a fan. I prefer natural foods such as crickets, various worms and larvae, and I experiment with various fruits, vegetables and greens until preferences are found for each of my boxies. I will also offer cooked chicken and small amounts of lean beef on occasion. I will also add either Reptocal or Vitolife to their foods at least once each a week. As for processed foods, maybe once a week a small amount of canned puppy food. It is high in calcium and vitamins, is great in adding quick weight to undernourished boxies and both meds or even greens can easily be mixed in as needed.

I currently have 1.2.2 Florida Box, 1.2 C.A. Ornate Woods, 0.1.1 Florida Softshells, 1.0.0 Texas Yellow Mud, and way too many RES's...
