Does Your Dragon Sleep With Bad Weather?

Postby Selkie1993 » Fri Jan 15, 2021 11:23 am

Hi there,

Just curious to see if anyone's dragon hides when it's raining? This is the third time I've noticed that when we have a storm Drogon hides all day xD big baby.

Also, has anyone used ben-bac probiotic gel to help kickstart an appetite? I've given Drogon a few doses but he's still meh with food. He's been awake from brumation for about a month and a half, so I'm wondering if it's time for a vet visit.

Thanks for the advice and discussion :)

Darwin tends to be a bit less active on cloudy days now that I think of it. He really enjoys days when the sun comes through the living room window and lets him bask on the floor.

As for the bene-bac, I've never used it as an appetite stimulant. It's not likely to do harm to try, though be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling it (and handling poop) because it contains a strain of bacteria that may be harmful to humans.

Yeah, I think you've helped out before with my beardie issues regarding his lack of appetite. He's just still not into his food, only has a few bugs every other day. But he's still super active and cuddly, so I'm not sure if a vet visit is needed yet.
