ADV in adults

Can a 5 year old beardie that we have had since he was maybe 6-8 weeks old have ADV as an adult? He is the only beardie we have.

Yes, I believe they can carry it and be symptom free or develop symptoms later in life. Is your dragon suddenly acting different or sick ?

I just saw this, so sorry!
They can carry Adeno for years, without any symptoms which would just make them carriers.
Or, they can carry it & be very ill. It depends on the severity of the strain, as well as their
individual genetics & health status.
