Ticks

 

Ticks are very common in lizards. Ticks attach themselves to the host lizard and suck the blood from it.

The simple presence of ticks on a lizard is not life-threatening, however the longer they are allowed to persist the more damage can be done to your lizard.

Although pulling the ticks off the body of your lizard may seem like a good idea, it is not as this likely will lead to infection. Neguvon is one of a few solutions that can be used to kill the ticks and eliminate the spread of them. Consult your veternarian or pet store for the appropriate solution to use as Neguvon cannot be used on all lizards.
