Ornamental reptiles, like other pets, require care and may suffer from various diseases. In the following, I mention some common diseases in ornamental reptiles:
Respiratory diseases: Most ornamental reptiles are susceptible to respiratory diseases such as respiratory tract infections and sinusitis (inflammation of the paranasal sinuses). These diseases can cause symptoms such as sneezing, coughing, and runny nose.
Skin diseases: Ornamental reptiles may be sensitive to skin diseases such as fungi, dry skin and skin secretions. Factors such as improper nutrition and environment full of some bacteria can cause these diseases.
Gastrointestinal diseases: Gastrointestinal problems such as diarrhea and vomiting may also occur in ornamental reptiles. The cause of these problems can be improper nutrition, infections, or other factors.
Parasitic infections: Parasitic infections such as psoriasis (related to psorium) or helminth infections may occur in ornamental reptiles.
Musculoskeletal problems: problems such as spin addiction, fractures, or muscle problems may occur in these animals.
Neurological problems: Ornamental reptiles may also suffer from neurological problems such as seizures or mood disorders (behavioral problems).
To prevent these diseases and care for ornamental reptiles, proper nutrition, proper ventilation, and basic hygiene are important.
