Description

Reptoboost is a carefully blended mixture of glucose and maltodextrins for energy, electrolytes, vitamins and probiotics to help debilitated reptiles as a pick-me-up. Reptoboost in the drinking water will provide the extra energy needed by animals that may be under veterinary treatment, stress, or for tortoises for post-hibernation recovery. Its high palatability means it can be added to the drinking water, making its use simple for all species of reptiles including lizards, snakes and tortoise. Reptoboost can also be administered by stomach tube in rehydrating reptiles which have become dehydrated.

Reptoboost contains probiotic organisms which live for a short time in the gut, this helps to stabilise the pH levels so that the reptile to re-establish the correct balance. The electrolytes present aid in maintaining adequate levels in reptiles with diarrhoea (meaning they are losing electrolytes at a fast pace). The maltodextrins in the blend provide sustained energy rather than just a short burst. Recommended and used by veterinary surgeons, Reptoboost is important for reptiles receiving veterinary treatment. During these times the normal gut flora may be unbalanced and a breakout of harmful bacteria may occur, causing other health problems.

Reptoboost should be used at a rate of 1 scoop per 500ml of drinking water. Change the water daily and gentle rinse the reptile to wash off any residue from the skin. For recently woken tortoises bathe them in a warm solution of Reptoboost to encourage them to drink, this should be done 2-5 times a day until they begin eating. Always wash them afterwards to remove residue from skin.

As always, excellent service. Always use this product for a sluggish tortoise, there isn't a better one.

I had run out of this product and needed it to help boost the recovery of our poorly Bearded dragon. I was pleased to find it at a good price from Viovet and it was a relatively quick delivery. Whilst he rarely drinks water I was easily able to work out a powder/water ratio for his size; and following daily soaks he showed signs of improvement which I think was partly due to using Reptoboost.
A definite staple for my reptile first-aid box.

A really excellent way of helping tortoises to wake up after hibernation, or to act as a "pick me up" following illness - added to warm bathwater. I really wouldn't be without it.

I have a large group of tortoises and always use this if one is off its food or on antibiotics. It is very effective and rarely fails to restore health and wellbeing
