The raw honey is a antibacterial that will kill an infection - hold off on it till you hear from Tracie or AHBD --- I dont want to make it worse and they can help you better than I w/ the vitamin A thing and raw honey --- so the saline is doing no good ? Poor baby --- hang in there and I am hoping AHBD gets on here soon ---Tracie is on late at nite --

Ok so the 5.0 UVB is where? Top of screen? Inside the tank? Is the basking bulb a coil or a regular looking bulb? The 5.0 is more for aquarium use- I would recommend getting a 10.0 bulb how long is your fixture- placement and distance plays a key role here so this important

I have the uvb tied to the top of the screen from the inside and the heat lamp is a regular bulb. The uvb fixture is 18 inches

Ok so it's a T 8-- it needs to be 8-10 inches directly above basking decor and No cover over the bulb -it needs to be exposed-- please upgrade the 5.0 to the Reptisun 10.0 T 8- do this ASAP-- your basking temps are being taken w/ a digital probe thermometer--? They should be 95-110- a gradient heat is recommended-

Basking temp is around 105 and cool side is around 80-85. Honestly his breathing is getting really labored and i don't think he's going to make it through the night i hate to say it. If i end up getting another dragon I will switch out the bulbs with a 10.0
Thank you all for your help I will keep you updated

I'm so sorry that you + your beardie are going through this. :( The honey mixture may help his eye but it does sound like he's got other issues that I don't know what to tell you to help him. My heart goes out to you.

The vet your going to is a good one? Take him in and see what they find as far as what's going on and prognosis - then make that decision-

Hello,

I did PM you also. I wasn't aware that he was this critical.
Remind me again, did you ever have a blood test done on him? To me, the swelling of
his eyes look like he could be having renal or heart issues, an ultrasound or blood test
would help determine that.
For now, you can dilute the honey down with warm water to thin it out & put it on his eye
lid & inside of his eyes. Has he opened his eyes at all recently? Is he keeping his beard
dark all of the time?
I would recommend not giving any antibiotics right now, especially since he may have some
renal issues going on. Have you noticed whether or not he has any swelling on the hands,
fingers, feet, etc?
Let us know how he is doing.

Tracie
