Upper Respiratory Infection?

Postby ChrisKim1010047 » Sun Mar 28, 2021 1:19 pm

Hi everybody,
So just today, my beardie, Toothless, has been making some wheezing and puffing noises. Sounds like a respiratory infection, I know. I have a vet visit scheduled for the 6th, and I ordered some Serrapeptase to hopefully help him out. But I'm really worried about waiting so long to visit the vet. I also don't know what could have caused it. He's been eating kale salads, with occasional waxworms. His hotspot is 95-100 F and humidity stays between 30%-40%. I give him a bath every few weeks. He has a Reptisun T5 10.0 HO. The only thing I can think of is that I tried giving him an Earthworm from my local reptile store and he spit it out after chewing on it for a bit. After that was when I noticed the wheezing. Please let me know what I should do to help him out until the vet visit. I know that Baytril is a good cure for these situations but need to be prescribed by a vet.

Where is the UVB? In the tank or on the screen? What is the distance from basking decor?
