Upper Respiratory Infection

Postby Kevmac925 » Sat Apr 17, 2010 7:25 pm


I bought my bearded dragon lilly around February. From the day i got her i kinda knew something was wrong but it didnt seem like it was a sickness. I thought maybe shes just stressed. She would Puff out her beard while breathing when she got excited. While doing this sometimes she'd open her mouth and let out a little whistle noise. Now she the other day i picked her up she had a bubble coming from her mouth and a string of mucas. My mom and I are in a tight situation. We dont have the money to see a herp vet so i have no idea what to do. Is there a home remedy please someone help. I love my beardie dearly and if she died......I just dont know. Please help.

Hi, my beardie has just been diagnosed with an upper respiratory infection and has been prescribed antibiotics from the vet. I have heard that Reptaid can help with this, but I am not an experienced owner to be able to say for sure. I live in the UK and it is not easy to get hold of and seems pretty expensive (but cheaper than a vet). I know how distressing it is, i have been worried sick about my little one and hope that one of the experts on here gets back to you soon with some good advice xxx

I suggest ordering Reptaid from Reptaid.com Order it ASAP
Also here is a Thread about Reptaid viewtopic.php?f=6&t=114920
"Reptaid has been used on many species of reptiles for over year with amazing results. It is being used in at least 7 countries that we know of right now. It has helped reptiles recover from
1. parasite infections
2. eye infections
3. respiratory infections
4. lip rot type infections
5. loss of appetite
6. loss of libido
7. lack of energy or vitality "
