Hi fc3schick87 thanks for the info,

yeah the antibiotic is the one you said, my brother is a vetinary nurse but his practise doesnt have anyone who specialises in reptiles, so hench i went to another one which has only recently been opened.
when i made the appointment they gave me the impression that they did over the phone. but when i got there i started to doubt it, when i questioned the vet she said all lizards have the same physiology so the treatment wouldnt be too different.

i read up about both internal and external parasites which was something else i wondered about but she didnt say anything about it, which i why im doubting her knowledge of reptiles.

giving the anti biotics orally isnt too bad, yoshi doesnt particularly like it, but by slowly adding dropplets to his mouth he does lick the end of the syringe, i think yoshi knows im trying to help so doesnt resist too much.

both puff and yoshi are too young to be sex'd properly so i've been tring to read up about other possible indications which suggest puff maybe male, and yoshi female.

things like general behaviour, both in and out of the viv,
the way the stand, the way they bathe, the way they sleep etc, there are supposed to be slight tells which females and males do differently, but it may just be me wanting to see these things after reading about them.

on the alternative vet front i have made an appointment with another vet in a different town who IS a specialist.
my brother looked him up, and checked all his credentials for me.

its a 45min drive and im a bit unsure about the length of time out of the proper atmosphere, other than slapping the cars heating up to full i dont want to make yoshi uncomfortable.

i have already covered the sides of there travel box as it was completely clear (yes a stupid purchase as i already knew about wd's and invisible barriers) but i couldnt find an opaque one, hench "customising" if myself

the petshop owner has only really started to sell water dragons recently, (may have been since i asked him if he knew of any breeders)

i do like the idea of injecting the crickets with the antibiotics, though im struggling with the logic of it - how much do you inject, and where ? surely more than a tiny amount would kill the cricket instantly ?

im debating changing there food to xx worms to add a little variation, maybe they would suit injection better ?
undecided on the best type of worm yet, hench the xx, many people recommend diffrent types, can you recommend any which yours prefer ?

thanks again for any info, its all greatly appricated.
