We just got this dragon four days ago. We are new bearded dragon owners. Does it look like his eye is infected? tia
Your basking bulb and uvb play a huge part in the health of your dragon - we need to start w/ all your lighting pleaseThank you. Do you think I should bring him to a vet or back to the pet store for them to look at it. Could it be parasites or mites. Just don’t want it to get worse. As soon as I get home I will see what lighting I have and take a picture of his set up. We do have a solid substrate. We are brand new to the bearded dragon world so any tips would be greatly appreciated. He also is not eating. If anyone has a tip on how to get him to eat that would be great. We have two leopard geckos also(not in the same tank). But I remember it took about a week when we first brought them home to eat. Hoping it is the same with Frankie. Tia
You have a tiny one. The eye does look irritated, but not sure it is an infection yet.
What type of UVB light & basking light are you using? Do you have a loose substrate in his
tank, or a solid particulate?
You can get some sterile saline solution to try & wash his eye out a couple of times per day
to see if that helps out.
Let us know how he is doing.
Ok I would get a Zoo Med 24" fixture Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO Hood this will come w/ a 5.0 bulb hang on to it for a back up distance and placement is different from this bulb you need 22" Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5 HO
