Amber Technolgy Reptaid
An all-natural antibiotic, anti-parasitic to help small reptiles fight off the parasitical issues that may plague them.
It is well known in the reptile world all known traditional medications have limited success with parasites afflicting reptiles (especially troubling for Coccidia in its various forms). Some veterinarians feel there is no drug which can conquer this persistent parasite. In addition, while undergoing treatments for parasites, the reptile often suffers loss of appetite and general lethargy from drugs being administered. Reptaid has been used to successfully rid reptiles of Coccidia in just ten days of steady treatment. It is also effective against Roundworm and Pinworms, and possibly any other parasite which may afflict your reptile.
2. BACTERIAL INFECTION
One of the more serious medical conditions which reptiles encounter is a respiratory infection. It can be treated with antibiotics but the side effects of such treatment often include loss of appetite and general malaise. Eye infections are also common among some breed of reptiles.
Reptaid has proven very effective in the treatment of bacterial infections. Instead of a loss of appetite, the reptile usually responds with a very noticeable increase in appetite and vitality after just 2 days of treatment. And where antibiotics failed to work Reptaid has helped the reptile completely defeat the infection with no reoccurrence.
3. LOSS OF APPETITE
Reptiles suffer from a loss of appetite from time to time. Sometimes the reason is never determined. But Reptaid has
been used as an appetite stimulant when no other medical issues were apparent. The result is a healthy, happy, hungry pet
Read the product use carefully before beginning the Reptaid. Shake bottle well before each use. Reptaid can be used for all reptiles and some amphibians. This includes all chameleons, geckos, dragons, anoles, turtles, tortoises, snakes and frogs.
Administration of Reptaid is short term. However, there are clinical settings in which Reptaid is utilized beyond a ten day regimen. Reptaid may be used for many weeks with clinical drug holidays (breaks) as directed for microscopic parasites. For the first ten days administer once daily.
1. There are two containers in the package. A small vial and a 1 oz eye-dropper bottle. Pour the small vial into the 1 oz bottle and shake well. Discard the small vial.
2. The basic guideline for dosage is .1ml (.1cc) per 100 gram animal weight per day. This is equal to about 2 drops from the eye dropper. There are 20 drops per ml.
3. If your animal weighs 50 grams, then cut the dosage in half. Since .05ml is a very small amount of fluid, you can draw that much Reptaid in the syringe and then draw in some water so you have more fluid to inject into the reptiles mouth.
4. If you are treating babies or pygmies, then administer drips from the syringe WITH the needle. These are tiny tiny drips from the orifice of the needle.
5. A drop comes from the eye-dropper. A drip comes from the orifice of the needle.

1. Administer Reptaid according to the dosing chart above once a day for ten days. Wait 2 days and then repeat for 10 more days as needed.
2. 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 squirt the Reptaid into its mouth while it's 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.
3. Reptaid can be administered by injecting the solution into a feeder insect if you are certain that your reptile will eat the insect when you offer it. It is necessary to watch the insect be eaten to be sure that your reptile is receiving the Reptaid. It does no good to inject an insect and then let it loose in the cage for the reptile to catch the insect free range style. Your reptile may not eat that particular insect. And likely the insect would not live long after being
injected with Reptaid.
Any feeder insect your reptile will eat can be injected with the Reptaid. You have to use a syringe with a needle for this application. Just turn the feeder insect over and inject the proper amount of Reptaid into the soft underbelly, then offer the feeder insect to the reptile right away. You can also use crickets, other roaches, and most worms in this same manner. Just inject the Reptaid into the feeder bug and give it to your reptile
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 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 chameleons mouth. There is enough Reptaid in those tiny drips to help the animal.
5. Administer Reptaid according to the dosing chart once a day to the reptile for ten days. Wait 2 days and then repeat for 10 more 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 Reptaid time to assimilate and benefit from the administration throughout the day.
6. As with any protocol for parasites, it is suggested that you test the animals fecal matter after treatment until you have 3 clean fecal tests. Be certain to disinfect the cage and all cage furnishings so reinfection does not occur.
