Turtle Food

At Petco we have plenty of delicious, nutritious turtle and tortoise food choices to help your pet thrive at every age and stage of life.

Depending on their species, your pet may prefer to snack on shrimp, feast on fruit, or devour green, leafy veggies. But whatever tempts their palate, keep in mind that all turtles and tortoises require a well-balanced diet. And that means you’ll need to supplement with commercial foods that are specially formulated to meet your pet’s unique nutritional needs.

FAQs About Turtle Food

Turtles are omnivores, so they enjoy vegetables as well as protein-rich snacks like worms or insects. But that should only make up about 40-60% of their diet. The rest should consist of commercial turtle food that’s formulated with their specific nutritional needs in mind, to ensure a completely balanced diet.

Petco has a wide selection of turtle food options to fit your pet’s specific nutritional needs, from pelleted commercial foods and freeze-dried insects to live mealworms and crickets for snacking.

That depends on your turtle’s species and stage of life. Most turtles need to be fed daily as juveniles, whereas some adults can be fed every other day. But all turtles need access to fresh water every day. Talk to your veterinarian about your pet’s specific dietary needs and feeding schedule.
