so I've come across many different supplements brands and I was just wondering what is the best one the market!

There is the:
Exo Terra repti calcium with and without D3
Rep-Cal (with vit.D, herptavite, etc)
Repashy (calcium plus LoD or just calcium plus)
Exo Terra multi vitamin
Reptivite

I'm just a little confused as to what ones are the best and if you do have any advice here I'd love to know your dusting routine, I'm also trying to find a good one to go with since everyone seems to have different thoughts/opinions on this!

I've used RepCal phos free calcium, RepCal phos free calcium with D3 and Herptivite for many years. I dust lightly at almost every feeding win the phos free calcium...twice a month lightly with the phos free calcium/D3 and lightly twice a month with the Herptivite. It works for me but it's not the only way.

I also feel that what you feed/gutload the insects with is as important. I feed/gutload crickets, roaches, superworms, locusts with dandelion greens, collards, kale, escarole, endive, carrots, squash, zucchini, sweet potato, sweet red pepper, etc and a bit of fruit such as berries, melons, apples, pears, etc.

My veiled female, for instance live 6 or 7 years as a rule and the males longer.

All that's important is that what you use creates a balance and the chameleons live long healthy lives using it. Others can tell you their supplements and schedule and how their chameleons do to give you options.

Hope is helps.

I had made the switch to using just Repashy calcium with Lo D daily. Then I had an intensive husbandry review by an awesome vet and he recommended I change it, which I have. I’m using all Repashy brand - Supercal No D with each feeding. Alternating once every other week Calcium Lo D (will be med D when I run out) and Supervite. It’s only been about a month with this regimen, but my girl is doing great so I’m sticking with it.
