F10 Treatment Applications in Exotic Animals

Webinar 2: F10 Treatment Applications in Herptile Patients

Tuesday 6 July | 19h30-20h30

The F10 product range of veterinary disinfectant and treatment products (Health and Hygiene Pty. are unique in various respects. They are all based on the main active ingredients of alkyl dimethyl benzyl ammonium chloride and poly (hexamethylene biguanide) hydrochloride, with various additional minor constituents to optimise their efficacy for use in their different applications. The company believes in an open and ‘evidence based’ approach, with efficacy (primarily against viruses, bacteria and fungi), and safety (corneal, dermal, ingestion, inspiration and environmental), being tested against all ‘end products’, by external quality controlled government approved laboratories. The test certificates in respect of such tests are made publicly available on their website. The products are approved for use in many regions globally including (USA, many areas of Europe, UK, Australia, China and many other areas of Asia and many areas in the Middle East). The safety and efficacy of the core products results in veterinary treatment products also being licensed for use in the same regions. In this webinar the panellists will discuss the main and divergent applications for F10 products in the herpetile veterinary field. F10 is non-corrosive and in view of its safety profile is ideal to use by fogging, for the control of air borne contagious infections, e.g. mycoplasma, herpesvirus, Aspergillus spp., Reptarenavirus, paramyxovirus, etc.. Taking this a step further, the products administered by nebulisation are licensed for the treatment of bacterial, fungal and viral infections (rhinitis, tracheitis, and pneumonia), on occasions used alone, in other situations used in combination with traditional systemic therapy, subsequent to culture and sensitivity testing. Dermal applications, F10 can be used for fungal or bacterial infections or subsequent to burns, bites, scratches or shedding problems.

Reptiles are the most common pet to be kept in bedrooms, thereby increasing the risk of zoonotic infection. Herps are also often kept in high concentrations in racks and other forms of confined accommodation in specific rooms. In both situations the control of contagious (often zoonotic) disease is essential, and readily achieved by fogging, ensuring that all surfaces are effectively decontaminated. F10’s safety and efficacy by fogging is second to none.
