Brumating?

Postby heidiveinohatt » Sun Oct 21, 2018 9:17 am

Im not sure if my bearded dragon, Floyd, is sick or brumating. He has never brumated before (He didn't brumate last winter. His symptoms are the following:

Lethargic, very tired
No appetite
Throwing up any food I force feed him
Pooping less, not much content in his poop. Mostly just his urate and water.

The weather here has changed very quickly, and I will admit I have taken him out of his cage more than i should have. Whats your opinion?

EDIT* According to my temperature gauge his heat lamps are around 95-100
He has a Reptisun 10.0 UVB Bulb

Hi. The throwing up part is not good. When Beardies brumate they don't throw up. Can you post a picture of him and his set up?

No I was thinking he was throwing it up because when they brumate their digestive system is kind of in a shut down state and I was putting food into his stomach which was making him sick. Im not sure how to post photos on here? But everything is as it should be, ive triple checked with the vet and the opinions here online. As for how he looks, today his eyes were very sunken in but I believe that he was dehydrated because I noticed his humidity levels were too low which has since been fixed and i gave him some water. I also noticed his brow bone was not round but it was now flat which im not sure if it is related or not.

That doesn't sound good. But no worries! You and your beardie will get through this together. Can you give us an update?
Do you guys ever wonder why your lizard, oh beloved lizard, gives you the stink eye? You know you are in trouble then. They will probably burn down your house! But don't worry, because after they burn down the neighborhood, he/she will have let all the anger out, and then you will be best buds again! With a few 'slight' bank payments, you will be completly broke!
