Should I be worried?

Postby Dogstar5988 » Wed Aug 05, 2020 9:13 am

Hello, my beardie has been acting kind of lethargic this past week. Normally he likes to come out and run around my office while I work from home but lately he has just been laying under his hammock/ramp. He has been eating fairly normally maybe less enthusiastic towards his dubia roaches and salads. He has also had loose stools for a few weeks now, they have just been unformed and watery and also infrequent, maybe every 3 days. I have a vet appointment scheduled for Monday but wanted to see if you folks had any thoughts.

I would drop your T 8 to 6-8 inches from basking decor-- should be unobstructed w/ No clear plastic cover over the bulb
