    Hi! I adopted a rescued red eared slider 6 years ago, and it is believed that she is 20 years old now. 2 months ago, she developed a whit fame over her eyes. I visited my local vet, but he had no clue what the issue could be, because she has clean water, and a well-balanced diet. Do you guys...

    Well, after s a lot of research and some advice i believe that the red marks i have been seeing on my King snake may in fact be the start to Scale rot. My vet cannot book me in until next week and have been looking into medicines? I have seen lots of people say Neosporin or Triple antibiotic...

    Hi, I came home from work today to find that my bearded dragon of approximately 9 months does not seem to be able to support her own body weight. She is constantly lying down and when she does try to walk, her ankles seem incredibly floppy and legs don't seem to be able to take her weight. She...

    Posting on behalf of a friend without an account. This snake is only young, a year and a few months, otherwise healthy. She's had him since the end of feb this year. He has these lumps that keep just coming and going, it can be there one minute, gone the next. He has been treated by the vet...

    Hello, This is my first time posting on here. My friend has a neon tree dragon and part of one of his back legs is very swollen and black. His foot and toes on that leg look dead. It started out as a little bump on his foot and now it’s this. This lizard is VERY skittish and we do not know...

    I got 2 White's Tree Frogs on 2/4/16 and they've settled in well so far, except that that smaller one (2 inches) hasn't eaten at all. I was yawning for a few minutes yesterday and I noticed substrate in the mouth. I use coco fibre substrate as well as moss. Temperature and humidity have been...

    Hi guys, It is with sadness I post today. My gorgeous girlie Squish passed away very suddenly today. I know you won't have any definative answers and the only way to get them is to have a PM but wondering if any of you may have any idea what happened. I have had Squish since Oct 2012 (she was...

    Hello all, My son's horsefield, Gil, aged three, appears dead. For the past week he's eaten little, but he's been drinking and bathing. Last autumn he went through a week or so of minimal eating. I've just been to check on him and he was where I left him at 7am this morning. Completely...

    Hey guys, my bearded dragon seems to be constipated/impacted. Before anyone asks, he IS on Calci-sand, but it has never seemed to hurt him before (Although I plan to change it soon). I personally think it is because I gave him mealworms, so I've changed back to crickets. Strangely, even though...
