Xeno 200 is an easy to use spray which is remarkably versatile and effective. It acts against a wide range of internal and external parasites which affect rabbits, guinea pigs, rodents, ferrets, birds and reptiles.

Is this safe to use on my bearded dragon?

19th Feb 2016
Dawn Leask

Hi, I have a 5 year old bearded dragon and would like to know if this product is safe to use on him? Thanks.

This product is very safe in Bearded Dragons but you must give the correct sort of dose. Weigh your Beardie first, then give the correct amount of drops. A large overdose could be toxic.

Area to apply

23rd Oct 2014

Where on the body should this be applied?

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

Anywhere on the skin where it is not likely to be removed by the animal. It is absorbed through thin skin quite quickly. Applying it to the surface of thick hair or feathers will mean it fails to work at all. On birds it is usually applied on the back between the wings, separating the feathers to apply directly onto the skin. On small animals like rats or ferrets etc, it is normally applied to the skin at the back of the neck near the base of the skull. It should be placed high up enough to be out of reach of licking if the animal turns its head to reach it. (Birds do not lick it off.)
