ACE-High is a special vitamin supplement which has been formulated to provide high levels of vitamins A, C & E, crucial in aiding animals such as fish, birds and reptiles through periods of stress and disease. The enhanced levels of vitamins A,C & E along with smaller quantities of other vitamins and minerals including B1, B2, B6 & B12 have been proven to improve health.
Vitamins A and E are both involved in helping the body resist infection. Vitamin A is essential for healthy mucous membranes such as the mouth, lungs and gut, and vitamin E has been shown to boost the immune mechanism in some species. Vitamin C is used up very quickly by the body when it is under stress and so must be replaced.
ACE-High contains high levels of vitamins A, C & E. Large lizards, and chelonia (turtles and tortoise) in particular are known to require extra vitamin A. Runny nose syndrome in chelonia responds in some cases to supplementation with vitamins A, C & E. The classic terrapin problem of swollen eyes and pneumonia is a manifestation of vitamin A deficiency. Poor hatchability in chelonia (and other) eggs is also thought to be linked with vitamin A / E deficiency.
