    My Bearded Dragon has shown some signs of an RI, but I'm not entirely sure what to do from here. Shes been swallowing quite often, you can hear her breathe, and sometimes she moves forwards in a "coughing" motion? She started swallowing around 3 months ago, but she only did this in the bath...

    Hello. My berber skink has been displaying symptoms of a respiratory infection (bubbling around his eyes and occasional sneezing). I only noticed this today and immediately made him a vet appointment, however my vet that takes exotics is on holiday and the earliest appointment I could get is in...

    Hi guys, So I've got a Brazilian Rainbow Boa, Bo, who is 16 months old now and he was recently diagnosed by a vet as to having a mild Respiratory Infection. My only problem is I can't seem to figure out how he got it and what to change to help get rid of it. The suggestions the vet has given...

    Have been doing this hobby for quite a few years. So had my own animal health experiences and also been asked for advice from others. Longer I have been in the hobby and the more I have heard of health issues in reptiles which usually end up at vets. Almost all of which don't seem to end on a...

    A royal python I received September last year has not eaten with me. They haven't eaten for 7-8 months. When they arrived with me, they were sick and I immediately took them to the vets, they had an RI. For almost 2 months they had to have injections every other day as well as vet visits. She...

    I have a western hognose that I got February 2019. He's about a year and four-ish months at this stage. He's gone from 31g to 117g with me. He has a great appetite. He shed twice last year, 4 months apart. It's been over 5 months since his last shed so I've given him a humid hide today. Current...

    So yesterday evening, me and my partner heard a crashing sound. Before we could even know where it came from, my ball python started making a loud coughing/sneezing underwater sound. My partner was there faster than me and the snake was in his waterbowl, knocked over a lot of his decor (logs and...

    3 months ago - 8 year old female bearded dragon vomited mostly broken down squash and greens, then again but just clear liquid, she was acting completely normal otherwise so I monitored her closely. 1 month ago - she ate some cut up blue berries and regurgitated them a few minutes later took...

    Hi all, I'm new here and a relatively new snake owner. I have a 4(ish) year old female ball python. I unintentionally acquired this snake a year and a half ago after the previous owner asked me to watch her for a few weeks and then moved 3000 miles away. I had zero knowledge about snake...

    Hi there, I have a 3 or 4 year old Bearded Dragon, she lives on her own in a 5ft vivarium. Before Christmas I noticed she was making funny noises, as if "bunged up" and also little noises during the last moment of breathing in/out. I suspected a respiratory infection, so I took her to the...

    I have tried giving Cosmo some medicine today but I think most of it went on to my finger ! Could I give him a little more now that I think I have found away to get his mouth to stay open? How long does it take for respiratory infections to clear?

    Hey guys!! For weeks now my corn has been sneezing! On the 29th of sep, I took him to the vets and he gave me baytril for 3 doses! Alas hasn't worked! And the sneezing continues! I took him back to the vets and he doesn't have a clue I feel of what to do! I have taken him off his bedding and...

    Hi, I'm probably going to be a little more honest than I should here, but the whole story is probably necessary. Skip to the end if you like :Na_Na_Na_Na: My royal has an R.I. I've only had him for around four weeks. I expect that it was my doing, though, because the ambient temps in his rub...

    Hi Forum, I have a corn snake which I have a suspicion might be getting the starts of a RI infection. I recently moved the 5 year old corn into a rub from a viv as I have a Royal that was too big for the RUB and needed the viv, no space for more vivs so best compromise. I heard what I...

    So I took my Royal with the RI to the vet and she is on a course of antibiotics. I mentioned about steaming and also that I had read that people nebulise with f10. The vets opinion was that nebulising was the best thing to do. I have bought a nebuliser and ordered some f10. What quantity and...

    I'm in panic, couldn't sleep all night and don't know who to call or write to, as the nearest reptile vet is not open for quite a bit yet today! My ball python, whom I had for less than a week is sick. I'm pretty sure it's respiratory infection. She is: sneezing occasionally, breathing with a...

    I'm pretty sure my royal python has a R.I. I just took him out of his viv and i heard a clicking noise coming from him and then he looked at me and yawned. I looked into his mouth and his saliva gland was all bubbly.... ...so... I need to take him to the vets. However, i cant go tomorrow and...
