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.
What type of reptile are we speaking about?
Can you post a Picture of the Moss?
Can you look and see if it is caught in the throat?
What is the reptile doing?
What type of reptile is it?
Can you open the mouth and see if you can use tweezers to pull it out?
What type of worms are you feeding?
I may have further questions.
You need to use a credit card on the side of the mouth and pull down on the beard to open the mouth. Use a pair of tweezers to help remove the moss. You should never use any substrate with fibers or loose substrates. They are deadly. The meal worms and super worms should never be fed either as they are not digestible and can cause liver damage down the road. The only choices to help the Dragon is to try and remove the moss from the throat yourself or an Emergency Vet visit. No other easy choice or way to do this. replace that substrate with Paper, Tile or cage carpet.
Unlike dogs we cannot induce vomiting, so we have to manually remove the moss.
