Reptaid™ is designed to help your reptile overcome viral, bacterial and microscopic infections without the complications one would get from more traditional treatments.

While undergoing traditional treatments for parasitic infections, reptiles can experience loss of appetite, lethargy, hydration issues, even organ damage. Reptaid™ is a blend of herbs that is gentle to the system, and is found to be beneficial to the health and well being of reptiles.

My personal experience with Reptaid:

I have personally used Reptaid on my bearded dragons, and I can tell you, this stuff is amazing. My female beardie, Athena, came to us overrun with parasites and extremely stressed. After 10 days of Reptaid, the diarrhea stopped and her fecal was clean. Her gut flora was so healthy, in fact, that my vet actually asked us what we were using and wrote it down!

I cannot recommend this stuff enough for relocation stress, bacterial infections, viral infections, parasites - you name it. I would recommend that anyone who has reptiles keep a bottle on hand. It's awesome.

*Note: there is a product sold in many pet stores called Rept-A-Aid. This is NOT the same thing. In order to purchase Reptaid™, please go to their website at for a list of retailers. I would also like to say that I have not be compensated in any way from their company or otherwise - I just feel that this product is a must have for any reptile owner.
