Tamodine Wound is a powerful antifungal and antibacterial tamed iodine veterinary medicine. It is ideal for cleansing and dressing wounds and infected areas in conjunction with veterinary treatment.
A very useful product for the first aid box, Tamodine Wound is recommended for cleaning cuts and infected skin. Simply apply Tamodine to wet cotton wool and gently cleanse the surface of wounds. Once clean, wipe off any excess, and release the reptile.
Tamodine is effective against bacteria, protozoa, yeasts, fungi and some viruses without damaging delicate skin. It has all of the activity of free iodine but with much reduced irritant sensitising effects, and it does not stain.
Tamodine is suitable for cleaning mouth rot lesions in the mouths of reptiles. These are likely also to need antibiotic treatment from a Veterinary Surgeon and will also benefit from supplementation with ACE-High (this is likely to be necessary as part of a tube feeding program).
We would advise against using Tamodine Wound on Amphibia as they can absorb chemicals through the skin.
