Tiacil for Bearded Dragons

16th Dec 2013
Henry Smithfield

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

John Cousins
  • Veterinary Surgeon

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.
