Hi everyone, Spike is currently on medication as his fecal sample confirmed he has worms. Iv read that it's a good idea to give them probiotics.....can anyone tell me if this is correct. And if so, what are they called in the UK? Unable to find Acidophiliz+, seems to only be in US.

It would help if you could provide links so we might be able to evaluate the credibility of the source.
A lot of what I see when googling probiotics for bearded dragons is sites selling something, which tends to put me on guard.

As far as finding them, try googling probiotics UK :wink: (Not an endorsement)

Same with Acidophiliz+ UK. It shows up available via Amazon UK (Likewise) :wink:

I read it on this website on the care sheet for treating bearded dragon with parasites. Def cant get Acidophiliz+ in UK. Looked everywhere!

That should be helpful. Unfortunately Acidophiliz+ is no longer produced (anywhere as far as I know). Non dairy/soy yogurt with Lactobacillus Acidophilus should work though and is widely available.

That explains why I couldn't find out what was in it besides Acidophilus. Not sure I could have anyway since it was (ostensibly) not for human consumption.

In searching for an alternative available in The UK, I did find this:

(Ignore the picture of the dogs--read the description)
by searching for substitute for Acidophiliz+ UK

Hope this helps
