Help with beardie having seizures

Postby bmorgan91 » Sat May 04, 2019 3:04 pm


Hello all! We are new to the beardie world and desperately needing help for ours. My parents surprised my 8 year old with a petsmart beardie (I know I know) in November.. we noticed him having some shaking of the head pretty early on. We are consistent with calcium on his crickets and greens also the UVB. He started shedding a couple weeks ago and didn’t have a big appetite. Yesterday and today he’s had probably 10 seizures all together.. his appetite is good today he ate a lot but im extremely worried and my 8 year old is devastated. Please send any help our way or any tips :(

Please review your tank setup with us, as well as post any pictures so we can see your lighting
placement as well as the dragon's physical appearance.
We need specifics such as type/brand of UVB, insect size & type fed, supplementation, the
temperatures & substrate used.
