    I have a couple green anoles and one seems to have had an eye infection for about 4 days now. I cant get a vet appointment until friday but I feel its an urgent issue and cant afford an emergency room visit. Anybody have any remedies?

    Update from this thread - https://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/snakes/1258741-eggbound-cali.html Lil Nipper was slowly passing the poo blockage, but was floppy around the area of the blockage. I was advised to offer him a fuzzy which he ate on Thursday. On Friday I had to go out of the...

    I’m new to Uros. I just bought a nice pair (male and female) of ornate uros from a lady that lives near me along with the tank she was keeping them in and all the supplies. She’s had them for just under 2 years and she thinks they’re about 2 and a half years old. They’re about 10 inches long...

    Anyone seen this before? Vet isn't concerned. Its hard and about the size of my finger nail (the lump, that is!) It doesn't seem to bother him and he's functioning in all departments.

    Hi all, I have just returned from the vet with Stanley, my bearded dragon, where the vet has just told me that he has osteomyelitis in both his front legs and one back leg. The vet was extremely negative, saying that antibiotics rarely work in this case, and told me that it would be best to...

    Hey. So yesterday I went and boughtba 6 month old Horsfield Tortoise, and I've fallen completely in love. Unfortunately looking at him today one of his eyes seems a little weepy and swollen, definitely more so than the other eye anyway, having never owned a tortoise before I'm not sure how...

    Hello, I have seen in quite a few places and a few videos the topic of water blisters being discussed in anacondas if they spend too long in their water bowl. Due to anacondas being semi-aquatic I never thought that spending too long in their water would be a problem as in the wild they spend...

    I have a 47” Dwarf Boa (uncertain of exact locality) who has been fabulously healthy for the 3 years that I’ve owned him. About a week and a half ago, after a nice full shed, the underside of the tip of his tail began turning red. I posted a picture in a Boa Constrictor Group on Facebook and...

    Hi all A week ago i noticed my iguana has bigger hemipenal bulges as normal. Could it be it has to do with breeding season? Or is it an infection? He/she is about 1.5 - 2 years old. Ive been searching the internet and to me it looks like he is starting to show its a male but i rather ask it...

    We have had our Horsfield for just over a month now and he seems to have settled in well. But this morning we noticed that his right eye won't open while the other definitely can. He is wiping at it a bit too. We have tried to rinse it. Any advice? If we keep rinsing should that do the trick? Or...

    Hello, I noticed on the picture that one of my babies got something in its eye(s?), you can see that on the picture. I guess it's a common thing so hopefully someone can tell me how to treat it (or to do nothing). Thanks.

    Hi all, my girlfriend has recently gotten a trio of rats over the last few months and one of them is making a strange noise that I could only describe as a mixture between a pigeon cooing and a wobble board (Rolf Harris style). Is this a common thing or is it likely the start of a respiratory...

    After picking up a stunning sunset boa on sunday I was a little shocked by the fact the guy had failed to help the snake shed and it had stuck shed on its head and eyes, but I have had experience in the passed as so decided it wouldnt be a problem for me. Today I decided I would give him a bath...
