Betadine Solution is a must have for Reptile First Aid and Wound care. Betadine can be used to treat and clean minor wounds, blisters and burns on reptiles! We reccomend using this product in conjunction with the Derma Gel Spray or Derma Gel.

Our Procedure For Treating Minor Wounds on Reptiles:

Place the reptile in a bin/container filled with luke-warm water. Be sure to only fill the water up to chest height or lower to ensure the safety of your reptile! Add a few drops of Betadine Solution to the water to create a light brown color
Soak the animal in the solution for 10-15 minutes.
Remove the animal and dry off on papertowel. Apply a thin layer of Derma Gel to the affected area.
Place your animal in a clean enclosure and monitor health until healed. Seek Vet advise if your reptile is experiening adverse symptoms or not healing!!


Betadine Solution can also be used as a disinfectant for cleaning enclosures!
