Have Reptile Care Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
Can you tell me about the set up?
Is the lump hard or soft?
Do you leave feeder insects in with your Leo?
Thank-you for the information. I suspect that the lump you have found is an abscess. These can be quite common in Reptiles. This can happen if one of the feeders happen to bite the Leo, then bacteria gets trapped in the area and an abscess occurs. I am going to give you links for the UK Herp Vets in hopes that there is one in the area where you are located. This is my link for all the Herp Vets in UK:
http://www.livefoods.co.uk/vets.php The Herp Vet will open the abscess and clean it out, and administer antibiotics as well as give you some to give at home. This may open on its own, but most likely will need to be addressed by the Herp Vet. Joan
I was hoping that one of the Vets that were listed would be able to help. I have a list of Vets in your area. Maybe one could do a phone consult with a Herp Vet on the lsit. Joan
