You can get this at the grocery store- you need to set up a hospital tank - you need a UVB and basking light set up together - can you take the lid off that tank - ? Is there a UVB ? You have not said

You need a UVB that is just a basking bulb - he cannot live w/ out this
https://www.reptilesupplyco.com/wholesa ... o-med.html this comes w/a 5.0 bulb hang on to it for a back up
you need this bulb
https://www.reptilesupplyco.com/t5-uvb- ... o-med.html
I recommend you go look at your local pet stores for what I posted or something similar to it -- He needs this ASAP- your dragon will not be able to digest his food w/ out it - if you get to the store and need help post what you find and I can help you
In the meantime if its warm where you are take him outside let him sit on you for at least 15 minutes or longer as long as you can stand the heat -- but he needs this UVB - your dragon is going to need this to pass the impaction -
Have you gotten any water into him or any food I recommended - - ?
can you take the top of your tank off ??

It’s a desert uvb bulb . He’s been under it an hour and seems to have perked up slightly yet still no stool. I’ve bathed him in another warm bath and massages his belly. No shops are open right now but I’m getting apple paste tomorrow

Ok apple paste I am not sure you want something unsweetened apple - are you not near a grocery store -- ? Ok the UVB tell me exactly what you got-- it needs to be a certain distance in the tank for certain bulbs
