Spikeyboo wrote:My beardie needs help too. She’s about 6or7 and just suddenly went limp. She was opening her mouth and sticking her tongue out and kept swallowing then suddenly she went limp. Is this a sign of burmation or sudden illness? She was fine and then this happened and hasn’t ate or drank or moved really since. I’ve never seen her do this before. When she opens her eyes they are like squinting and she’s having a hard time moving, she’s actually not really moving at all now or doing that mouth thing to much anymore. But she will barely open her mouth and then close her eyes. Is death near if so I will put her down? Or do I pay to find out what’s wrong? She’s on day 2 1/2 like this with no signs of improvement.


Hi.
Im so sorry that your girl is doing well, unfortunately I am no help at all. But I think it might be helpful if you made a new post specifically about your poorly girl, I'd hate for ypur post not to get noticed and just buried in mine.
Praying she's ok and gets the help she needs. It's horrible not knowing whats wrong with them. X

Thie evening my little guy has taken some pureed apple and honey off a spoon and also some plain water. Is there anything else I can offer him that will be gentle but increase his energy?

Great I'll get some tomorrow. Never seen it canned before so will hunt for it.
Next time he passes anythig I'll take a pic. I know that one wasn't great at all but its the only thing hes passed that has more substance to it than the urate and water.

Ok no more meal worms please--- they are too hard on babies stomachs-+ we need to see white urate- the poop looks good so he's not impacted- please make sure he's hydrated- I would offer salads that are rinsed before serving- make sure the insects are hydrated and gut loaded- the rinsed salads will give moisture- what is or was his diet?
