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.
