I got a collared lizard that is quite sick (Wild Caught). I am going to take a fecal when if goes next, and i am probably going to panacur and flagyl it. I am setin gup a cage with newspaper, basking spot, retreat and a water dish. A few questions. i heard they eat vegitation, do they? Is 115f a good temp for the hot spot? And are there any other tips for getting a WC collared healthy? Here are some pics that i just took of him/her.
Kyle, your main idea is the right one. Take it to the vet. If you have panacur/flagyl look up the dosage for the collard according to his/her weight. They will eat vegetation, but i highly doubt he will if hes WC and stressed/sick
get him going on crickets first. Good luck, Pm me if you need any further help.
ALSO try and see if he will eat waxworms. I bought a wild caught one also and he would only eat waxworms. I did have to put a few in his mouth first but he has been in my care for about 8 months. GOOD LUCK
Kyle, try to pm me now. I think you got my hydration PM? And the 115 bask is to warm for a new comer. Like i said in the pm (if you got it) use a 60 W Regular soft white lightbulb just for now, keep the hot end quite a bit cooler.. 85-95.
