<--- What Susan said. Some reptiles will naturally sneeze through their nose leaving a white deposit (salt). We call it snalting. This is how their bodies remove salt from their bodies. If this is occurring then it could be a normal biological function and something we see as semi frequent and normal.. But if you have something like a respiratory infection then you definitely need vet help. The symptoms would be different.. Mucous buildup, not eating and breathing like normal etc. There ARE other causes than respiratory infection that make it appear to be a respiratory infection.. One problem just causing secondary affect. |
Call around to local vets an ask. Also look for an avian (bird) vet.. They are going to be able to help much better than a cat and dog vet.
Some vet info.. And this was posted a decade ago hope it helps.
