Intestinal Tract Inflamation

 

Intestinal tract inflammation causes a noticeable decrease in the appetite of a lizard as well as an overall decrease in its movement and energy. Many different diseases in lizards can cause the same effects in terms of its movement and attitude.

The first step is to examine the feces of your lizard to see if it has the conditions of worms or other parasites. If no parasites are evident it is most likely a case of intestinal tract inflammation. If you do notice parasites in the feces then there is another parasitic infection effecting the lizard. A trained veterinarian can perform a proper fecal examination and definitively determine the cause of your lizards sickness and suggest an appropriate treatment.
