Lethargic

Postby ruckmancl » Tue Mar 12, 2019 6:41 pm

My beardie is acting really lazy she flattens herself out and lays in the same spot for hours , I’m use to her being active and moving around. Today I went to hand feed her and she puffed out and started breathing hard she’s laying in her food bowl which is unusual and she isn’t moving but she is alive . She’s a healthy weight she shed the other day and her stool is very large but a little runny but not liquid . A couple weeks ago I thought she was pregnant because I felt and saw eggs but now I don’t see them. Any idea what’s going on ? I tried including anything I see important.

She won’t let me move her and she’s laying inside her food bowl so sorry ab the quality . Her eyes will barely open but they do. Her beard is not black neither is her belly she appears to look the best she ever has but this is not normal for her at all. I’m scared she might be egg bound UPDATE. She was dehydrated I missed her and she began drinking and moving around, thank you anyways

Please get rid of the red bulb it's hurting her eyes-- they don't need colored bulb--- she needs only good UVB and basking bulb--- please post pics of your tank and lighting--- lights should be on for 12 hrs off 12 hrs---

Thank god !!! She can have lasting damage to her eyes and that is why she is closing them -- the only lights she needs is a Good UVB inside her tank and basking light if you want extra lighting for her use a white daylight or reg House hold bulb --- not LED but the old style bulbs 75 watt --- but please NO more colored bulbs-- please post pics of your tank so we can help w/ other things --- thank you
