Hi Everyone!

I hope to get help. I have a sick Beardie who is 4 years old. Its the first time he's been sick or has shown these symptoms. He's been sick for 3 days.

- Droopy Brow
- Not eating
-Pale ( he shed 5 days ago)
- Looks very weak and not moving ( Although this morning he walked to his water bowl and then plopped)
- His basking temp is 96 degrees.
-He pooped 2 days ago but only the white part ( urate)
- 3 days ago, he had bloody feces but that has not re-appeared.

What are you using for a UVB? Brand and bulb? How old is the bulb? Has he recently come out of brumation-? How are you taking basking temps? Is he drinking water?

He doesn't look too happy. Have you brought him to the vet for a checkup? It may be something as (relatively) simple as a parasitic infection, to something more complex. It's also possibly related to lighting or diet as mentioned so the more details you can provide us about his setup the better we will be able to identify any possible issues there.

Please do review your tank setup with us so we can be sure it's all correct for him. He is
looking dehydrated, indeed.
Can you get some oral fluids into him, as soon as possible & maybe some squash baby food
too for some nutrition?
Do you have a vet you could get him in to see?
Has he opened his eyes at all today?

Let us know how he is doing.
