ACE-High is one of our key multivitamin products. It is a specialist product mainly used by veterinary surgeons to correct certain very unbalanced diets.
ACE-High contains high levels of vitamins A, C & E. This provides the higher levels of these vitamins required by certain groups. Large lizards and chelonia in particular are known to require extra vitamin A. "Runny nose syndrome" in chelonia responds in some cases to supplementation with 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 thought to be linked with vitamin A and /or E deficiency.
These higher levels of vitamins are also beneficial to all species during periods of stress and disease. 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. Vitamin E has been shown to boost the immune mechanism in some species. Vitamin C is used up by the body very quickly when it is under stress and so must be replaced.
