Concerns regarding his breathing

So, Swordtail has been breathing oddly and sneezing a bit lately and I chalked it up to something like allergies at first because it started when it began to get cold but it has gotten a bit worse. Is there a possibility that he has a respiratory problem? There are no vets that take beardies in my area so is there a chance I could help him get over it on his own?

It is possible that he has an R.I. Can you post a short video ? It does sound like it from your description. Tracie might have helpful suggestions and she does sell antibiotics on her website so you can tag her . In the mean time see if you can find a vet, even if they are out of your immediate area.

He stopped sneezing so this was all I could get

That's good that he's eating + active ! I checked Drache's [ Tracie's] website and I was wrong, she sells probiotics but not antibiotics, sorry for the mistake. All you can do is keep the enclosure a little warmer at night, around 82F and hopefully he can beat this. Still, call all the vets that you can and see if they'll dispense some Baytril [ enrofloxacin ] for you and Tracie can help you with the dosing. That's all I can think of. Best wishes to you + Swordtail !

How should I go about making it warmer at night? I already have a heat lamp in his enclosure that heats him during the night but how do I make it warmer?

Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
