  • Oct Reptiles Magazine,, best ever

    Hi Forum,
    If you would like to read one of the best articles I ve seen in a magazine about (Common Ailments in Captive Reptiles) its in this month's Oct copy of reptile magazine page 64 . I ordered my subscription VIA telephone this saves me over 50 % on the cost.
    This article is written by two different reptile Vets concerning reptile disease and cause. I cannot copy this article to this page but it has offered me a complete understanding of many common ailments. . From RI to stomatits, to Anorexia, Metabolic bone disease, 250 different species of mites and a real mind blower was the info that many forms of blisters disease may be a by product of secondary bacterial infections from dermal infestations of mites.. Certain vitamin deficiencies can cause changes in the lining of the lungs reducing the production of a beneficial mucous this can results in a re-occurring problems this is very similar to condition that can occur in humans where they don't make a surfactant to clear the lungs., yes you can treat the infection but it may return unless you fix the problems.
    Please if you can beg , borrow and or order this magazine very useful info for herp keepers. and may be useful to DVM"S.
