Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
Hello,My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.
I would love to assist you, but need to ask ask some questions.
What type of tortoise or turtle do you have?
What type of greens are you offering?
If a tortoise are you offering grass hays?
Any swelling in the eyes?
Everything sounds great as far as husbandry with the one exception of the UVB light I recommend the Reptisun 10.0 linear tube, which is one of the best on the market. The All Living Things bulbs have had a problem exploding and sending shards of glass in the enclosure. I do recommend a basking light for the warm area. They actually need 3 temperature zones. The basking temps can go up to 115 for this breed, mid 80's to 90's for ambient temps and the cool side 80's.
The eyes could be a result of a Vitamin Deficiency, or could be debris in the eyes. You can try some sterile saline eye drops to rise the eyes and see if it helps. You can also use some Terramycin opthalmic ointment and see if that helps. You can order that online here: http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Terramycin.html
If The saline and Terramycin does not help, then a Herp Vet will be need for a more indepth exam. I can locate some for you with a State.
