After having some shinglebacks come down with symptoms of an early RI infection I called a fairly well known reptile keeper/breeder who told me to use Chlorsig 1% eye oitment with the instructions to apply daily to their eyes until it goes and it usually clears up in a few days. So I've followed those directions and had no results. Based on research it seems the active ingrediant chloramphenical could be used to treat an RI infection however it would need to be administered orally or via IV. So does anyone have experience either using this - or - a deep understanding of RI and with a chemistry or medical background? Before the wannabees jump in I will be taking them to a vet, I'm now just curious if I was given a bum steer or not.
