A specially formulated probiotic for reptiles combining bacteria, enzymes, electrolytes and vitamins that is ideal for support of animals off their food, for post-hibernation problems in tortoises and rehydrating reptiles.
Reptoboost contains:· Lactobacillus with Streptococcus faecium which live for a short time in the gut helping to stabilise the pH, yeasts to provide a source of amino acids and vitamins.· lipase amylase protease and cellulase, electrolytes to aid in maintaining adequate levels in reptiles with diarrhoea which lose electrolytes and maltodextrins for sustained energy.
A very important aspect is the use by the veterinary surgeon in reptiles which are under treatment with antibacterials where the normal flora may be unbalanced and a bloom of inappropriate bacteria may occur causing perhaps haemorrhagic enteritis.
For support of stressed reptiles use 4g (one scoop) per 100ml of drinking water.
"Recommended by vet for ‘poorly’ tortoise. Not used previously but seemed to help and will use again - especially after hibernation."/ (Posted on
