Hello,

My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in reptiles and reptile Rescue.

The Dragon should be seen by a Herp Vet for an Opthalmic ointment to aid with healing and and to also check the eye itself for injuries like a corneal abrasion which is common in this instance.

I suggest using some sterile saline for the eyes to clean them. We normally do not hose two dragons together because of injuries and territorial issues. A male will over breed a femal if housed together. so they are kept separate and the femal is brought to the male for breeding and then separated after the breeding.

If you need a Herp Vet please supply a State to locate some for you.
