Tiacil for Bearded Dragons 16th Dec 2013

Can we use the Virbac Tiacil Drops for reptiles(Bearded Dragons)? Our Vet recommended them.

  • Website Content Developer at VioVet

Yes that is perfectly OK if your Beardies have an infection which is likely to be susceptible to topically applied gentamycin. This antibiotic is often used in reptiles. You do not say what you are trying to treat. Tiacil is usually used for superficial infections of the eyes (conjunctivitis) and can be used in reptiles. It is not licensed for use in reptiles, but very few drugs are, so if you want to use an effective medication, this is a good choice.
