This was a case of follicular stasis I treated in an Argus Monitor last year, which required surgery to remove the ovaries and overgrown follicles. I’ll be writing alot more on reproductive problems down the line, as they are extremely common in captive reptiles, but in the meantime here’s a great article on this condition outlining the disease process, diagnosis and treatments commonly encountered:
Welcome to the Exotic Pet Vet Blog. I’m hoping to share interesting cases I see in my daily life as a domestic, avian and exotic pet vet as well as tackle some issues facing petowners and vets alike. I will be sharing some of my experiences, funny and otherwise, and hopefully giving some useful advice on common ailments and how they can be prevented for pet birds, small mammals, reptiles, amphibians and other weird creatures I encounter.
Stay tuned for an update shortly on my background and experience, and I hope you can get involved in the comments section. Don’t be shy, ask if you have any queries I can help with. And most importantly share your experience and insights too.
All the best,
Sean McCormack BSc (Hons), MVB, MRCVS.
