RTI and my Juvie Water Dragon....help!

Posted by martinsonly on February 04, 2003 at 14:02:42:

I have a juvie Chinese Water Dragon who I purchased then found it to have a respiratory infection (gaping and some clear mucous, a "pop" at the start of a gape). I have no money available at this time to go to the vet (please withold negative comments).

For two weeks I saw relief (no gaping or mucous and a resumed appetite) after adding increased heat 24 hours a day. I used Reptosol in some peach baby food (which it loved) to help boost it's immune system. This morning I woke up and found the "pop" and gaping had returned, though I've made no decrease in the heat. I have human grade amoxicillin, keflex, and trimox available. Can I use these? If not what should I do? Again, I'm not in a position to take the animal to the vet at this time (willing, but not able).

Thanks
