In Reply to: I would never use Bone meal as a cal source... posted by azteclizard on May 07, 2003 at 15:33:53:

True but thatís why the FDA regulates these things. We would be in big trouble if cows were regularly exposed to these toxins, because it wouldnít just be in the bones. I have used it for over 10 years without a single problem. Calcium from animal sources is used regularly in the pet bird industry too, animals that are highly sensitive to toxins. I feel pretty confident it is safe. However if you have your doubts then you can use reptile supplements. Only prob is most consist of other vitamins and minerals besides calcium so you have to be careful of overdosing. Which I think is a bigger risk then toxins. But hey thatís me.
