John Courteney-Smith, MRSB is the Reptile Products Manager for Arcadia Reptile. Today he joins us to talk about Metabolic Bone Disease and UVB. John has a mission to eradicate this affliction and spends a great deal of time educating the community on UVB and Vitamin D3. He has written The Arcadia Guide to MBD and its Elimination in Captivity. This podcast episode is an introduction to that book. It is an excellent read and I highly recommend adding it to your library. In the US, you may purchase a physical book from Light Your Reptiles or get a kindle edition from Amazon.com. In the UK you can head on over to the Northampton Reptile Centre. For the month of January 2017, both Light Your Reptiles and Northampton Reptile Centre will be having a sale on this title!

John’s next book in the series is The Arcadia Guide to Reptile and Amphibian Nutrition. If you suspect that there may be a podcast episode on that book then you are very correct. Links to the books are below and you are welcome to study ahead!
And dare I suggest that there is more? We are leading up to a much bigger view of our hobby. If you want to see where John and I are going go ahead and pick up the third book on the series!
Arcadia Reptile has earned their place in the reptile community by producing quality products. Their website arcadia-reptile.com is an excellent resource on reptile lighting.
