Neo-Calglucon, calcium glubionate, was originally created as a human calcium supplement. When pet owners found out about this product, they began using it to treat hypocalcemia in their pets. It is in liquid form, and one must supplement their geckos with D3 (UV, powder, etc.) so the NeoCal can be converted and processed efficiently. Administration/dosage can be a little tricky since there are so many variables that affect the absorption rate. 1 cc per kg twice daily is the normal dose for hypocalcemic animals, but, in my collection, I give producing females a drop or two every week or so. I determine how much NeoCal to give the females by examining the density and quality of the produced eggs. I know that this is not too scientific, and my methods might not apply to your collection or others. I can tell you that egg production in my collection far exceeds the "average."
I believe that NeoCal is no longer available, but I've heard that there is a similar product on the market that has replaced it. When I caught wind of the impending discontinuation, I purchased a large quantity of the stuff. Since it is only calcium, it is an OTC drug. You can probably find it at GNC or your local pharmacy.
