Reptaid XL is a natural organic treatment remedy for reptiles. Reptaid XL was created to fight viral, bacterial, fungal, and microscopic parasite infections in reptiles weighing over 250 grams. If your pet is smaller, Reptaid is for reptiles weighing 250 grams or less.

ReptaidXL is packed with antioxidants to help support a healthy immune system. When reptiles are exposed to certain elements or environments, this can cause immune fluctuations. Reptaid helps with:
 bullet Immunity
 bullet Upper respiratory functions
 bullet Eyes & mouth health  bullet Natural purification of foreign contaminates
 bullet Bodily energy
 bullet Healthy digestion

Reptaid XL works to maintain a healthy immune system to keep your reptile in peak condition. For reptiles 250 grams or less, use Reptaid.

What is Reptaid XL?

Reptaid XL has been formulated as an all purpose Anti-parasitic immune system treatment for reptiles. It is a blend of natural organic herbs which have been tested to assist reptiles in treatment for many parasites as well as bacterial infections and other debilitating ailments. It works in two ways. It serves to defeat the advance of parasites, bacteria and viruses, as well as boost the immune system of the animal so that its own immune system can function at full strength to conquer the troubling situation. For these reasons, uses for Reptaid are unlimited in the treatment of reptiles both in laboratory and home environments.

What are the symptoms of coccidia or giardia?

The primary sign of a reptile or amphibian suffering from coccidiosis or giardia is diarrhea. The diarrhea may be mild to severe depending on the level of infection. The diarrhea may be watery, very smelly, bloody, or contain mucus. Blood and mucous are present, especially in advanced cases. Severely affected reptiles may also vomit, lose their appetite, weight loss, become dehydrated, lethargic, and in some instances, die from the disease.

Most infected reptiles are in the four to twelve week age group. The possibility of coccidiosis should always be considered when a loose stool or diarrhea is encountered from this age group. A microscopic fecal exam by a veterinarian will detect the cysts confirming a diagnosis.

What is the traditional veterinary treatment for coccidia or giardia?

Traditional coccidia or giardia veterinary treatment consists of giving Albon (aka Sulfadimethoxine), Flagyl (aka Metronidazole), Marquis (Ponazuril), and/or bacitracin for 10 to 14 days. In some cases, numerous 10 to 14 day treatment cycles are needed. Like many other bacterial infections Giardia has developed resistance to many of drugs used to treat it. Since neither Albon, Flagyl, or Marquis actually kill coccidia or giardia protozoan, they are not always effective. Reptaid or Reptaid XL will eliminate these protozoan, even after numerous rounds of Albon and/or Flagyl have been unsuccessful.

REPTAID XL can help:

  bullet Stimulate immunity
  bullet Rid the body of microscopic parasites such as Coccidia and Giardia
  bullet Kill viruses, bacteria, and fungi
  bullet Soothe the digestive system
  bullet Rid the body of free radicals
  bullet Prevent coccidia or giardia if dosed preventatively

Tips to Administering Reptaid:
  1. Reptaid can be given orally, directly into the mouth of the animal. The best implement to use is a needleless syringe. Some animals will allow this and if the animal you are treating will accept oral treatments, then this method is the best option. Often a reptile will gape at you when you approach. Try to just inject the Reptaid into its mouth while it is gaping if possible. If the reptile will not gape or eat, then it becomes necessary to hold its mouth open long enough to insert the syringe and administer the Reptaid.
  2. Reptaid can be administered by injecting the solution into a feeder insect if you are certain that your reptile will eat the insect right then when you offer it. You have to watch the insect be eaten to be sure that your reptile is getting his treatment. It does no good at all to inject an insect and the let it loose in the cage for the reptile to catch it free range style. For one thing, you don't know if your reptile will ever eat that specific insect. And very likely the insect would not live very long after being injected with Reptaid.
  3. The best insect to use for injecting the Reptaid is the Blaptica Dubia cockroach. You have to use a syringe with a needle for this application. Just turn the dubia over and inject the proper amount of Reptaid into the soft underbelly, then offer the dubia to the reptile right away. You can also use crickets in the same manner. Silk worms do not seem to work very well for this application and have not proven effective in this application of Reptaid. Mealworms, wax worms, and hornworms may work but these have not been tested as yet.
  4. You can also treat tiny pygmy leaf chameleons or very young chameleons of other species. The idea here is to get some very small drops into the mouth. You can use a paperclip to very gently pry open the mouth. If you can't get the mouth open, at least just get the lips apart so the drop will land between the lips in the gum area of the mouth. For this dosage, use the syringe with the needle and just squeeze out two or three tiny drips into the chameleon's mouth. There is enough Reptaid in those tiny drips to help the animal.
  5. Continue treatment for 7 - 10 days or until symptoms are completely gone and health is restored. It is best to administer the Reptaid in the morning, giving the metabolism of the Reptile time to assimilate and benefit from the treatment throughout the day.
  6. As with any treatment for parasites, it is suggested that you test the animals fecal after treatment until you have 3 clean fecal tests. Be certain to disinfect the cage and all cage furnishings so re-infection does not occur.

Shelf life of Reptaid, before opening the bottles is 4 years.

Cautions/Warnings

Caution: If the reptile's condition worsens or does not improve, stop product administration and consult your veterinarian. An examination from a veterinarian is recommended prior to using this product.

Warning: For reptile use only. Keep out of reach of children and animals. In case of accidental overdose, contact a health professional immediately.

The dosing guidelines must be followed exactly as written. Reptaid is to be used ONLY for the care of reptiles. Under normal circumstances improvement in the reptile's health will be indicated by improved vitality, appetite, color, and attitude. Discontinue use if there is a noticeable decline in general health or any adverse symptoms occur. Overdose of this product can cause serious side effect to include: irritability, change in behavior, reduced consciousness, vomiting and subsequent dehydration, coma, or death. One must not exceed the daily recommended dose. It is important to weigh your reptile before administration of this product to obtain accurate daily dosing. Continuous use of Reptaid or Reptaid XL without appropriate scheduled interruption is to be avoided, as it is associated with clinically significant listlessness, diarrhea, and vomiting. As with any nutraceutical or pharmaceutical product, Reptaid may cause an allergic reaction that may manifest as potentially a serious condition. Any suggestion of allergic reaction, even the most subtle, should alert the reptile owner or veterinary health care provider to cease any further administration of Reptaid and to assess for interventional measures for such a reaction. One should have all of the appropriate emergency contact information readily available before starting this or any nutraceutical, pharmaceutical, or nutritional supplement. It is recommended that the pet owner, the novice in particular, discuss the use and side effect profile of this and any product with his or her veterinary health care provider. Co-administration of Reptaid with other agents must be done with caution. Co-administration with pharmaceutical antibiotics is considered safe in most instances with rare exception. One known exception is the co-administration of Reptaid with the antibiotic Baytril, which may have caused an adverse reaction of clinical significance. Therefore, this product should be given with caution when receiving prescribed antibiotics. Overdose of this product in a gravid (pregnant) reptile statistically increases the risk of miscarriage. Evidence of liver disease is a relative contraindication due to the presence of ethyl alcohol in this product (alcohol may be evaporated out of the Reptaid for safer use if your reptile has liver disease). This product should not be used with any medication that suppresses the immune system. All benefits and risks of this product should be weighed appropriately before use.

Treating More Than One Pet?

Amber Glass Bottles ~ If you have more than one pet that you are treating, you might want to consider purchasing one or more amber glass 1/2 oz., 1 oz., or 4 oz. dropper bottles, so you can split up the tincture into a smaller bottle. That way there is less chance of product contamination.

In addition, when treating more than one pet, it may be necessary to assure sterile administration without carry over from pet to pet. This is very important when using Paxxin to treat some pups and using as a preventative for others. The best way to assure this is to use the dropper only to transfer product to an individual sterile oral syringe, using a different syringe for each pet. (This method will also reduce the chances of product contamination.) Those syringes should be sterilized after each use. Each pet should have its own syringe that is not shared with another pet.

The use of a syringe containing measured drops from the dropper will also remove the risk of the animal biting the glass dropper.

These are terrific for storing dried herbs, tinctures, colloidal silver, etc. All are boston rounds and have black plastic phenolic lids, unless noted. The misters are fabulous and deliver a very light and delicate mist. Excellent for misting the face or for animals who are shy of sprayers. The cute little 1/2 oz. droppers are perfect for splitting 1 oz. tincture bottles into two separate bottles.

Syringes ~ these are luer slip syringes without needles that are excellent for administering measured amounts of Paxxin, CS, tinctures, etc. Reinforced tip, large finger grips, smooth draw and easy-to-read graduations. Rubber plunger with double contact for a positive seal and effortless injection. FDA approved and autoclavable.

If purchasing for use with Paxxin (aka Parvaid), syringe size needed is based on the weight of the puppy. We suggest two syringes, one for oral doses and one for enema doses (if not being given Sub Q fluids or on IV's, enemas are or may be necessary to prevent dehydration). Make sure to mark the enema syringe clearly, as you never want to accidentally use an enema syringe for an oral dose, even after it's been washed, as you can re-infect a puppy with parvo.

Puppies/kittens weighing under 3 pounds need 5 to 6 ml syringes. Animals weighing 3-10 pounds need 12 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 11-20 pounds need 20 ml syringes. Puppies weighing 21-40 pounds need 50 ml syringes. Puppies 41-50 pounds need 60 ml syringes.
