Worm Diseases


Flukes and tapeworms are two of the most common parasitic worms which infect lizards. They inhabit the inner body of the lizard and live off of it. Since the worms make their home on the inside of the lizard it can be difficult to pinpoint the cause of the sickness and especially difficult to determine the type of worm that has infected the lizard. For this reason a fecal exam is almost always required before medication can be prescribed. Of course this will require you to take your lizard to your local veterinarian for further treatment.
