Herpesvirus Infection in Reptiles

ADVERTISEMENT

Treatment

 

A veterinarian will commonly prescribe antiviral medicines for the infection. The medication can be either an ointment (for application on mouth sores), or oral medicine (for generic treatment of the disease).

 

Prevention

 

Once the animal is quarantined, to prevent the Herpesvirus from spreading, the pet reptile's habitat needs to be thoroughly disinfected.
