    Electronic Infrared Thermometer

    Hey all, I'm looking to purchase an electronic infrared thermometer, something I should have gotten by now. I know that my local pet shop offers a few cheap ones, I believed manufactured by Zoodmed and others. Will these suffice my needs, or do I need to step it up to a commercial grade...

    David, My screen is 48Hx24Wx24L. What distance should he be kept from the bulb? He always wants to get closer, I don't know if he is seeking more heat or UVB.

    Casque Burn

    Casque Burn Pictuers There appears to be speckles of blood where the skin is still connected. Before accusing me of neglect, know that I asked an exotics pet vet to treat his burnt casque, and she found no sign of burn. My guy is now in trouble, having lost a large portion of his casque and the...

    Casque Burn

    The vet recommended silvadene, but it is a prescription medication...others have suggested neosporin without pain medicine. I have yet to apply a cream, but at this point I dont think it would help. This piece of skin is surely coming off. I understand that it could help the new, fresh layer...

    Casque Burn

    Hey all, I took Samir to the Vet's right before Christmas. He had a supposed RI and a burned casque, which was quite obvious. He would always put his casque against the top of the screen and eventually it was burnt. He his now unable to do so and has a different setup. I may include pictures...

    Hand Warmers for Transporting?

    Hey all, I'm concerned about the temperatures for travel today. It's cold here and I'll be blasting heat in my vehicle -is it safe to throw in a couple hand warmers into the travel box? They'd be underneath and behind some artificial shrubbery. My main concern is any gases/fumes that may be...

    Optimal Setup?

    are you suggesting I lower to 100w? My guy hangs out around there and is always getting very close to his daytime heat light. (assuming in sought of heat). As for disturbing his sleep, nothing does. I sometimes let him spend the night out of his cage in a hibiscus tree and wake him up the next...

    Is My Guy Sick?

    So, I've been working on a paper right next to his cage. He's been asleep, and twice I have heard him "hiss." It sounds like air being released from a bike tire, or a sigh. Is this the popping noise you are referring to? I know you can't say for sure, but 'popping noise' is hard to distinguish...

    Is My Guy Sick?

    Does anyone have experience with diagnosing/treating this? I've never taken him to a vet's office and would like to know what I should expect for procedures/payment. He has also experienced some constant shedding around his 'yellow stripes,' as I have mentioned before, but I've been instructed...

    Is My Guy Sick?

    sneezing Would this popping noise be consistent with his breathing, or would it be irregular? I also just heard him "sneeze," which I think was the other noise I was trying to describe earlier..it just didn't come to mind. I'm not able to provide pictures at the moment, but I certainly can...
