Bacterial Diseases in Reptiles




The bacterial diseases are treated according to the type of bacteria causing the infection. Antibiotics are given orally or by injection to treat some bacterial infections, while topical antibiotic creams or ointments are used to treat others.


Sometimes the severity of the infection may require surgery, especially when the bacterial disease does not respond to antibiotic medicine.




The best way to prevent bacterial diseases in your reptile is to provide proper nutrition, hygiene and a clean environment for it.
