Possibly Overheated Bearded Dragon Need Advice

Postby Smkinney » Wed Jun 30, 2021 5:17 am

Until yesterday my dragon has been acting as normal. The temp spiked at my home due to the heatwave and I think it may have been too much for my guy. Between the ambient heat and the UVA/B lamp it was most likely too hot for a period while I was at work. Since my guy has been laying in the corner of the tank not really moving with his eyes closed and mouth open. Last night I cut all heat sources to see if it would help and no luck this am. I also snuck some water into his mouth with a medicine dropper. Any advice?

What was the cool side temp? Set him in some cool water -- watch him --- please watch those temps - we had a member on here not long ago lost their dragon due to getting over heated -- where is the dragon as far as house ? upstairs - down stairs --- I would move him into the coolest room you have -- what is his behavior now?
