Swollen Inner Eye

Postby Amalthea » Sat Sep 22, 2018 5:38 pm

This is my cousin's Beardie. It has this sort of growth/swelling in it's eye. Does anyone know what it could possibly be?

I'm not too sure about her set-up as we don't live near each other.

Tell her to bring the little guy to a vet. Growths can be deadly if left untreated

I doubt she would. She's not the best pet owner to be honest. He last Beardie died from neglect.

Hi there, ask your cousin if there is sand or other loose substrate in the tank , that could irritate the eye. If so , tell them to take it out ASAP. Just put down newspaper or paper towels. Get some plain saline to very gently rinse it, there may be a speck of something irritating it. Rae honey can be used as ointment, it's a powerful antimicrobial. If honey is used , be extra sure there are no loose bugs hiding in the tank, they could come out at night and attack the eye.

There's no sand that I know of, and I'll get my mother to pass along the rest of the information thanks. :)
