Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years and have worked with Dragons for 40 years. Please forgive the Virtual assistant. It is automated. I need to ask a few questions to best assist you.
Can you tell me about the UVB light. Is it a Linear tube or compact coil, strength, age and brand?
State to locate a Herp Vet if needed?
Thank-you! The Phone call did not go through, but I can continue with you here. The eye issue may be a corneal abrasion and infection. This most likely was from the sand you removed. Sand can cause intestinal impactions skin issues and corneal abrasions. The eye can be treated by using some Plain Sterile Saline to rinse the eye out. Once that is done there is an over the counter ointment you can order on line called Terramycin. You can order it here:
If this does not work to help resolve the eye issue, then a Herp Vet visit is advised to have the Dragon seen and have them stain the eye to see what is going on and treat it with a stronger medication that will get better results. If you supply a State I can locate a Herp Vet for you.
