Reptaid XL is a natural organic herbal treatment remedy with antioxidants formulated to help your reptile overcome coccidosis (also known as coccidia or cocci), giardia (aka giardiasis), pin worms, upper respiratory infections, etc.
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.
