Have you had enough time to observe her moving around more than just a few steps ? If she's looking fine + able to walk + breathe properly with no change in behavior then she should be good.

As AHBD said watch for any issues walking, breathing, eating, etc. be very careful with him next time. You didn't say if she's an adult or a younger one, but I know the little one tend to fast, unpredictable, and hard to find if you aren't watching and lose track of them. So with the little ones always make sure you know where a baby is before you move because they are so small and fragile. Adults are still fragile but they are easier to find and probably able to take and accident like this a bit better. As long as she seems like she's doing fine it's most likely fine and just keep a lookout for any issues for the next week or two 🙂

She went for a walk this morning and is very alert and active. She is breathing normally. I don’t know about her eating because she is currently in brumation and does not eat much. She is a 2 year old and I think that she is ok.

She just opened her mouth for a second and then puffed. Should I be worried? She does this after basking sometimes but could this be a sign of internal injury?

That doesn't necessarily mean anything at all, though it can...for this reason it's not advised that you sleep with your Dragon or anything like that, but accidents do happen. You need to keep an eye out for any black-bearding, lack of appetite, lethargy, etc.

When you say she's "been in brumation", for how long? And how often does she come out of the brumation. I'm asking because you said she went for a walk, and has apparently eaten some food, and when a Dragon is in an actual full brumation they shouldn't be eating any solid food at all. You can wake them up once a week for a warm bath and to give them a nice, long drink of water, and then let them go back to sleep, but if they're actually in a full brumation they should not eat any solid food at all until they are completely done and out of it, as the food will just sit inside them and rot.

She is not in full brumation, but it is cold so she is lazy. I think that she is okay though. She was very energetic this morning because of the thaw and went for a very long walk around the house. She then sat and looked out the window. She is very calm and happy. She was in full brumation a couple of weeks ago, but it has started to warm up so she is more energetic now. I think that she is fine. She is acting normal and not showing any signs of distress. Thanks!
