HEAD SHAKING BEHAVIOR (VIDEO)

Postby MBrown » Fri Jul 05, 2019 2:41 pm

I posted a question earlier - so for background info, here https://www.beardeddragon.org/forums/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=250043

Jo’s been doing this head shaking behavior since his vet visits this week. He’s been doing little “gulps” and then shaking his head. Link to video. https://www.dropbox.com/s/z9jrxrq5xdevl0i/Video%20Jul%2005%2C%2018%2013%2028.mov?dl=0

Can anyone explain this? I don’t know how to interpret it to know what his needs are. Please help.

How often does the dragon do this ?

Might be result of an inner ear infection ?
Not sore enough to make the dragon show a BB , but sore enough to annoy.

Or maybe something neurological ( due to pressure inside the skull / brain ) ?

If the dragon is often doing this , it's worth having a reptile vet assess and work out the cause.

Thanks for the reply.

He’s starting to do this more frequently lately. Seems to be more when he’s handled. I’ve been giving him more baths to help pass an impaction (per the request of my vet), so ear infection was something I considered too.

Unfortunately, she’s out until Thursday, hopefully I can get him in as soon as she’s back. Thanks for your advice!

Hello,

I responded on your other thread, too. Please let us know how he is doing. You will be looking
at taking him into the vet this coming thursday?
Would you like for me to merge both of your threads also?

Thanks Tracie, you can merge them for me, I would appreciate that. I’m going to give them a call when the vet gets back to see what she thinks.
