Hello,By the information supplied I can see he is well cared for. The Diet and husbandry is excellent. Unfortunately the wheezing and the bubbles indicate there s some type of respiratory issue going on. I know you would like to do an at hime treatement, but if I am correct he will need an Antibiotic from a Reptile Vet. This is a link to locate some in the UK: I wish I could tall you there is an at home treatment, but he should be seen as soon as reasonably possible.Joan
