Beardie

I'm sure they are but I'm not asking if they are better ? I'm confused on your comment. I'm asking if anyone has knowledge with a bearded dragon having upper respiratory infection

Kristi, I do not. However, tegus, green iguanas, tortoises, snakes, etc. can all get it. Sometimes, high heat for them to bask cures it. Other times, antibiotics must be added to the treatment. I hope that helps.
 
Thank you Walter.. I took her to the vet she had to stay overnight and get nebulizer treatments he sent her home on fortaz antibiotics and metacam... she is still open mouth breathing so I'm worried I'm waiting for him to return my call so I know what to do I just figured maybe someone else has dealt with it before and new any info ...thank you again
