HELP!! JUVENILE BEARDED DRAGON FELL ON TILE IM CRYING

PostPosted: Thu Jun 27, 2019 5:25 pm

I was holding my sweet 5-6 month old bearded dragon, Kiko, and I was standing doing so. She kept walking so I used my hands as stairs, I guess you could say, because she wouldn't stop. Well she started going faster and she fell really hard ON TILE! She landed on her back, tummy facing up and I quickly put her back. I was crying a lot she is so precious to me
When I put her back upright, she was kind of just laying there, kinda frozen? Like she didn't move.
I picked her up and gave her some worms after comforting her a bit and she seemed fine. Though, her beard did get pretty dark as well as the underside of her. She can move all her legs properly and she is no longer dark.
I am just worried that there may be something wrong or something I'm not able to see. I'm worried. And Vets aren't cheap.
Please help :(

How is the dragon doing? I read your post last nite and was hoping some one had responded --- I am thinking you should take him in and have him xrayed just to make sure nothing internally is going on --- you can call the vet and ask what the charges would be for an x ray -- office call ---

Being only 5 or 6 months old will work in her favour as she's quite light cf a full grown adult bearded dragon so the actual force of the impact will be much less .

The fall likely knocked the wind out of her and stunned her .

Keep an eye on her and if she starts to BB or starts crawling about oddly or not using some of her legs , or has blood in her poo , or coming from her nose or mouth , these are signs she's got a serious injury and needs urgent vet attention.
Will not hurt to ask a vet to give her a good thorough physical examination and take some x-rays.

Hello,

Poor baby, it most likely stunned her, which caused her to turn dark & not move much. It might
have knocked the wind out of her partially.
A vet visit might be a good idea to be sure nothing is broken. Just watch for her starting to limp
or favor a certain leg or arm, lethargic behavior, blood in the stool & decreased appetite.
It sounds like she will be ok.

If she's eating + walking normally she's going to be fine. :)
