Is this Zoo Med Reptivite with D3 good?

I wanted to get repashy calcium plus, but I can't get it soon. I still need multivitamins for my leopard gecko. My feeding schedule is feeding 4 times a week. I leave a bowl of plain calcium carbonate in his tank. I dust with calcium with D3 2 times a week. Can I use the Zoo Med Reptivite once a week for him. Also, he is 10 months old. Can I use this supplementation schedule when he is an adult?

The reptivite does not need to contain D3 if you are already giving the calcium with D3. Too much d3 is as bad as too little, if you already have it, I would dust once a week with the calcium+d3 and then once a week with the reptivite+d3.

You can purchase reptivite without d3, but it usually has to be ordered unless the pet shops carry it.

Do you gut-load your feeders at all? If so, depending on the food and how many vitamins/calcium is in the food, you would not need to dust with the reptivite as often.

I gutload my crickets and mealworms with apples and carrots and my mealworms live in this dry goatload from a reptile store.
