    Samson Update

    I just wanted to give an update on Samson. A lot of you helped tremendously with him when it came to getting the correct lights, and when he had an eye and respiratory infection. I am proud to announce that we are in the clear. His eye has been fully healed for about a month now and he is eating...

    Wow, I just can’t win. I did a really quick browse online while at the store before I bought it and I did not see that. And there was a beekeeper outside selling local honey when I walked out from purchasing this…haha this sucks. But yes, we have a health food store and a beekeeper.

    Well, a few days ago I made a post that Samsons eye was doing better but then the next day…and the last few days, it has been glued shut every morning. It’s so crazy how sticky the fluid is that’s coming out. We have about 2 more weeks of antibiotics to go and I am doing honey again. I bought...

    Thank you very much, I may be biased however I also think he is a great looking dragon. And yes, I am extremely relieved to see progress because it was stressing me out that he wasn’t getting any better. After his medication runs out, I will be taking him back to the vet for another fecal float...

    Ok, so I am keeping my fingers crossed but I think we are making progress. Samsons eye has not been crusted shut for 2 days now, and he is going to the bathroom more frequently. I think the antibiotics and anti-parasitics have finally kicked in. Here he is last night…taking control of the TV remote.

    I’m sorry, I was being facetious with the tweezer comment. I didn’t actually use tweezers, but I had to grab onto it with a towel and actually pinch it and pull it pretty hard to get it off. It was so sticky that it would not wipe off. I did try the honey but I don’t believe I gave it adequate...

    I believe the eye drops are twice a day for 21 days and the antibiotics are every other day for 30 days. The antiparasitic was a 3 dose medication. The vet said he seems a little small for his age, but now that we are getting the parasite taken care of and I have proper lighting, we should...

    No, no colored bulbs. I made the mistake of using a red bulb at night for the first week or so, but that hasn’t been used in 3 weeks or more. I did terramycin in the eye for about 10 days before going to the vet. Like I stated previously, the gentamicin and antibiotics from the vet have been...

    It’s Reptisun bulb. And it’s at about 12 inches or so

    It’s mounted under the screen inside the tank. And the basking bulb is a clear incandescent light bulb. I actually turned the UVB off yesterday to see if it would help anything…you think I should turn it back on? Substrate is reptile carpet.

    No, I replaced that before I even joined this forum. I only had the coil for a week maybe 2. I’ve had the T5 HO for 2-3 weeks now.

    UPDATE: I just wanted to give a quick update. Samsons eye wasn’t getting any better and I also wanted to just get a general check up on him so I took him to the vet. The exotic vet I was referred to is about 1.5 hours away but we made the trip. The vet was unsure what is causing the issue with...

    yea I just had him on the floor in the living room and skattered a few medium dubias around and let him have room to hunt. It was entertaining and he is definitely feeling better

    @KarrieRee not a good picture but the large dubias are about as big as his entire head

    @CooperDragon I appreciate your positive feedback. I was and am extremely perplexed by the 250W bulb as well. When I was researching using household bulbs versus “reptile branded bulbs” alot of people said they were using 65W. I started with that and it didn’t warm hardly at all. Then I switched...

    @AHBD thank you so much. I am trying my best, as I previously stated I feel like I didn’t raise Zeus (my 12 year old BD) properly. It’s going on a week of using the terramycin and as I said it looks to be helping however if it’s still bothering him come Friday, I will switch over to the honey...
