Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and reptile Rescue.
Can you post a Picture of what you seeing?
Can you tell me about her habitat?
Do you use an Under the tank Heater?
UVB light linear tube or compact coil, strength and brand?
State to locate a Herp Vet?
Do you only have one light? A UVB is not described in Wattage. Do you have a linear tube or a compact coil UVB? It would be a 5.0, 8.0 or 10.0.
What are the enclosure temps?
How big is she hard to tell from pic. Is she a juvenile or adult?
Thank-you! First issue is you do not have a UVB light which means she is not metabolizing calcium that should be dusted on her Prey. She has not been eating enough, and she looks dehydrated. She needs a UVB bulb as soon as possible. This along with calcium work together to metabolize calcium into D3 in the body. The UVB I recommend is a linear tube Reptisun 10.0 to run the length of the tank. The Agama is seriously ill. she is dehydrated and under weight. I suspect she already has the onset of Metabolic Bone Disease. She needs to see a Herp Vet asap. If she is not seen she will not make it. With this being said I will give you some immediate first aid. Please give her a soak in a 50/50 warm water and Pediaylyte soak in warm water. You will need to support her since she is extremely weak. Next to feed take some chicken baby food and add a pinch of plain calcium and drop on snout and allow the Agama to lick it off. This may or may not help in her present condition. Please supply a State and I can find you a list of Vets.
It is hard to see the bumps in the picture, but everything else I mentioned is visible. She is very ill and the bumps may even have been from Mites. She needs to be seen by a Herp Vet tomorrow if possible and a UVB too. Please supply a State so I can locate some Herp Vets for you.

You can us a little Neosporin only on the bare sore areas. She needs to see a Herp Vet today. As I said she is very ill and needs hands on help by a Herp Vet. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service 5 stars.
Have you had the Agama in to the Vet? Please let me know what the Vet has said.
I am so sorry for the loss. She was very ill. You are always best to get a Reptile locally where you can see what you are getting. My sincerest condolences.
