Reptiles/Leopard gecko


Hi I just bought some Terramycin for my Leo but I don't know how to apply it I don't know if I have to put it in her eye or above it please help me I'm really worry for her

Hello Reno,

Sure!  You can apply the terramycin easily by putting some on the end of your finger & quickly pressing some into the eye, gently.  
You can also use a swab, but with care so as not to accidentally poke the eye or apply too much pressure to it.
How long has your leopard had an eye infection?
Does he have retained eye caps?

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
