EAR INFECTION HELP (spinning in circles)

Postby Rangomango » Sun Nov 08, 2020 2:33 am

Today My bd has been showing signs of discomfort with his ear, he keeps going in circles with his head tilted side to side scratching his ear. I seen that baytril Is the best for infections but not sure how soon I’ll be able to get it.

Any things I can do at the moment to make him more comfortable 😢😢

Hii. i have seen some of mine show ear discomfort if they are or have had shedding issue in their ear./ i only mention this because of course we want to make sure we are doing the right thing. how old is your dragon and how long has this been happening ? Baytril i believe is used for infections , like URI.s and may be what you need but can you look in the ear and see if there is any incomplete shed or has this started happening since his or her last shed? i do not recommend sticking anything kn their ear or anything.... do they have a place that they can get to that warm to bask easily? do they just stay there where it is warm or do they move from there. ? If they just stay at their basking spot do we know the actual temperature there? I have purchased Baytril online, but i really hate to give any of my pets any medicine or chemicals unless it is absolutely necessary and needed. Baytril if used , i would also recommend a probiotic, not that i am a vet only a herp enthusiast. So . how long have you owned your beardie , what's their setup and how long has this been happening , and what is your Beradies name ? :D

Hello,

How long has your dragon had these balance issues?
Do you know what the humidity in his tank or the room is? You can try adding a humidifier
to the room to help out. Wintertime usually dries out the room & their tank environment &
sometimes contributes to balance problems.
Is he exhibiting any signs of illness other than the circles, such as lack of appetite, black or
darker than normal beard?
You can also boost his nighttime temperatures to a range of 75-80 in case he has an infection
or is developing one. Baytril is usually a good antibiotic for general infections.
