Head under water?

Postby KieraKern22 » Tue Jul 16, 2019 2:44 pm


So I gave my beardie a bath and his head went underwater and I think water got up his nose bc bubbles are coming from his nostrils. Is he okay?

How is he doing now ? Watch to see that he doesn't develop a respiratory infection. Heavy breathing, gasping, clicking noises as he breathes.

Maybe he's messing with you.

But in all seriousness, just keep an eye on him. If he behaves normally and displays no other symptoms, he's probably ok. He'll probably learn not to breathe water in like that again. Our dragon puts his head under during baths and you can see he literally chugs water.

I agree, a lot of them love to dip their heads under water to drink. Some have a terrible time
with aspirating water because they get overzealous about drinking & will end up having some
I would suggest upping his basking temperatures by a couple of degrees for a week or two in
case he did have any water go down the wrong way. It will just boost his immune system by
a little to help out.
How is he doing today?
