Droopy Eyes

Postby marthakatejenkins » Sun Feb 10, 2019 8:57 am

So I have a beardie that’s about 7 months old. Over the past 2 weeks he’s had increasingly droopy eyes and a little bit of lethargy. He has no other symptoms... eats normal, poops normal, plays aroud a good bit. I was doing research and figured it is probably dehydration since he does not drink out of his water bowl but I give him baths basically every day. His eyes get better after his baths but are back dropping after a few hours. What can I do to hydrate him a little more? Should I use his dropper to water him a few times a day AND do baths? Or do y’all think it is something other than dehydration?

Please post pics of your tank and lighting? What are his basking temps? What kind of lighting do you have? Substrate?

I’m not sure how to post pics but I have reptisun 10.0 in the tank and a heat bulb with basking temps of 101. Substrate is reptile carpet. He also has a hide, basking rocks, and a limb to climb on.

Does he drink in the baths? If not he is getting no hydration from them. If you think he is dehydrated then yes offer him drops of water on his nose. Pics will help us to see if it's dehydration or something else.
