Respiratory Infections

 

Lizards which are having trouble breating or appear to have a cold usually have a case of respiratory infection.Respiratory infections are generally caused by subpar living conditions including low temperature or high humidity. If the lizards enclosure is close to a window the lizard may be getting a draft from the incoming air.

When a lizard gets a respiratory infection it is likely that the lizard will require veterinarian attention and some sort of antibiotics to cure the infection. Also, since lizards are quite good at hiding their sicknesses the infection will likely have had a good amount of time to progress so it is important to act fast.
