Disinfecting for ADV

Postby Goatnator13 » Tue Jan 29, 2019 4:13 pm

Hello, we had a baby from pet smart that we think died of ADV. I want to reuse what I can obviously, but want to make sure that it doesn't spread to our future dragon. I would like to clean his basking rock, tree, hiding log and food bowls to reuse, as we spent around $700 on getting everything right, diagnosing, an treating the baby before. The tank I'm not taking chances on. Will bleach and dswnfecting wipes kill ADV? Or do I have to replace this stuff still?

Rinsing and baking the wood at around 250-300 for 45 min or so should disinfect it pretty well. As far as glass and synthetics go, I'd use bleach or a concentrated mix of F10 at around 1:100 or so which should do a good job of disinfecting everything. It's good to have F10 on hand either way and a bottle of concentrate lasts for quite a long time. https://beanfarm.com/products/f10sc-veterinary-disinfectant-100-ml-3-4-oz

Hello,

A diluted bleach solution of 10 parts water to 1 part bleach will work well with Adeno. You can
also use a steamer to clean & disinfect the tank, too which is highly effective!
