    Reasons to buy direct from ReptileUV
    We are the ones that developed this design to get the huge amount of sick animals that came our way because of poor UVB lighting and poor info when we were just independent researchers rescuers and rehabers.

    We are the only distributor to do actual Lab tested D3 Blood studies with our bulbs. A first that has not been done before or after.

    Almost 2 decades of membership with the ARAV (Association of Reptilian and Amphibian Veterinarians)

    We have spent over $70,000 in vet care to our clients and our personal rehab work and donations to other rescues.

    The easiest and least cost on replacement on warranties. (Just write us and you will get your replacements before we get your return)

    Most important, we care about you and your keeps. We are and always have been a personal up front place to go for real advice on how to keep your family safe and healthy.

    Please watch our videos and FAQ page before you call for your personal consultation.

SolarTech's new Ultraviolet Index Meter (UVI 6.5 Meter) is now available at RUV! Because of so many dangerous reptile UV bulbs hitting the market (please read the UV Guide) we now highly recommend using this important and highly accurate tool if you are not using a Mega-Ray® UV bulb. Many respected name brand distributors are selling bulbs that may endanger your animals leaving injuries that even experienced exotic vets may not diagnose properly because the injuries never happen in nature.

Most people are educated on what the UV Index is. Before going to the beach you can look in your local news paper and see what the UV index will be for that day. A high UV index means that you will sun burn very quickly. Unnatural levels of UV index will burn your animals eyes and cause anorexia and eventually death.

Don't this happen to your animal!

Far too many reptile lamps sold today either emit very little UVB or (even worse) in some cases such as some inexpensive Chinese lamps flooding the market, they emit dangerous amounts of UVB. The use of this essential reptile tool will eliminate any worry or danger to you or your reptile from either.
