Exclamation BEWARE

Beware of Pyrethrens

I had 3 skinks that were diagnosed with an unknown kind of mite and Pyrethrens were recommended.
2 of them died a traumatic death - convulsions and bleeding through the mouth.
I have never seen anything so horrific.
The vet I saw didn't know what he was doing and sought the advice of a vet at Guelph. Neither one knew what he was doing. They guessed and my animals suffered the consequences.

Before treating for Anything PLEASE do your research.
