My bearded dragon is breathing weird

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

[url][/url]Hey everyone, I really need your help to know if my beardie needs medical treatment. After I gave my beardie a warm bath he started breathing funny. His little mouth is making a puffing sound and blowing saliva bubbles during every breath. I have a video but I’m new to the site and don’t know how to upload. Please help! Thank you

Hello, Your Beardie may have inhaled water. You can try to keep him at a decline to help the water get out of his system. He should be able to pass the water out and be fine.

Hello,

Yes, that is likely what happened, it happens fairly often.
As suggested, do place him on a slight decline to help any water drain out of his system.
Also, try to keep him warm in the tank, around 80, to help boost his immune system.

Let us know how he is doing.

Hello,

That's great to hear! So, his breathing has returned to normal now?
It is scary when that happens so hopefully he wont ingest water again on his next bath.
