So worried.

Postby Puppycut » Mon Jan 09, 2017 7:22 pm

I've asked about my girl before and thought it was brumation which may be possible. I think I need to take her to the vet because she will not eat anything. Doesn't move much and I'm worried sick. Her basking temp is about 95 and cool side is about 80. She ate one superworms the other day. Could it be parasites?

when is the last time your bearded dragon pooped? try to give her a bath, maybe it will help her warm up faster.
could she have possibly in fertilize eggs? sometimes females will have eggs, even without a male, but there is no baby inside of them.
i hope your beardie is okay :(

She did poop yesterday, thank goodness. There was definitely an improvement, she was exploring and she ate a bit.

i am glad your dragon is getting better! squishy is the same, if he doesn't poop, he won't touch anything, until he pooped.
i am happy that your bearded dragon in doing much better! :)

Check temps with a digital thermometer or temp gun. The stick on dials are horribly inaccurate.

I adore her. She is such a sweet dragon, a rescue. Her name is PixiePearl. Lol

If you can, get temps of your enclosure with a different thermometer. Temps are one of the most important aspect of dragon care. They need to be accurately measured. 105°F-110°F basking site, about 85°F cool end.
Tell us more about your set up. What heat lamp and UV bulb do you have?

Hello,

Sorry if you have already reviewed your tank setup, but which UVB are you using & how close to her is it?
That's great she is a bit better today. Has she had any water recently?
What is your supplementation schedule like?

I have the all in one bulb. The good one that's recommended. It's a 40 gallon tank and digital thermometer and plenty of things in tank. Hammock, log, plants.
It sits on top of tank screen in a ceramic /metal base. Flukers heat bulb when needed. She's in the warmest room in the house. I give her calcium 3 times a week and barge her twice a week. Anything that you can offer is appreciated 😋

Okay, I thought you meant a stick on thermometer as a analog. Your basking spot is a bit too cool.
Is the basking bulb a mercury vapor? "All in one" kind of sounds like it...but not sure.
How long are your lights on?

Yes all in one mercury vapor. It's on from 7am till 8 pm. I also have another basking bulb going so it reaches around 95 degrees. I was told by vet 100 is too hot for her. She's about four. I just want to make sure she's getting what she needs. I have repast veggie burger but she doesn't like it. She's picky and not a great hunter. Any suggestions?
