I would look into your own husbandry for the cause of respiratory infections. Recurring ones indicate there is a problem in the environment more than anything. Temps either too low, or humidity is too high or way too low or dust or some other irritant is causing the issue. Improperly treating past respiratory infections can also lead to flare ups, as the infection just never went away, just went into a more dormant state only to flare up if any sort of stress came into effect.

Detail out the husbandry practices you use, including cleaning schedule etc..since you own the dragon. Also, what treatments have vets prescribed to date?
