Well i bought a mountain horned dragon this last weekend and everything was great then he got really sluggish and tonight when i got him out he wouldnt open his eyes or barely move. Finally i brought him out and held him for awhile and he opened one eye (cant seem to open the other) and started moving around sluggishly. Hes not very big and im temporarely housing him in a 10 gallon enclosure (only while im at work, otherwise he gets free roam of the whole bedroom), i have a heating mat, and i have a large water dish with a air stone in it to keep water moving so he drinks (they like moving water i hear), im using a reptile substrate like you use for snakes that consists of peat, vermiculite, and bark. In with him i have a live plant called a kalanchoe. Im wondering if he has some sort of eye infection in the one eye seeing how he cant open it at all? can i use neosporin or a triple antibiotic ointment on a lizard? I feed him medium sized crickets every 3 days or so. Also the room stays at a steady 75-78 degrees not counting the heating mat that is in with him. Any help or advice would be appreciated!
