Thank you for the link! I didn't know overdose of vitamin A was so common! I think getting it naturally from food like veggies is the best way.... Nutritionists will tell you to eat a balanced diet and varieties so you get all the nutrients you need. This means feeding box turtles veggies and fruits as part of a varied diet. I think people get freaked out thinking the turtle is going to suffer from vitamin A deficiency, so they start supplementing the turtle with vitamin A. If you eat enough varieties, you get all the nutrients you need and it's hard to get overdose since all the vitamins and minerals work together regulating the amount the body needs.
