New beardie health

Postby Awils1226 » Fri Feb 15, 2019 10:27 pm

I got a new beardie about a week ago & he has barely drank any water I've tried a water bowl, misting & using a syringe & he'll drink a little but I don't think it's enough. & I feel like his eyes might be sunken in. Was trying to attach a pic but I can't figure out how to.

Hello,

They can get dehydrated pretty easily if under stress.
It's easy to post pictures here. Just click on the XIMG in the message box to upload pics
to the image gallery here, then copy/paste the IMG onto here.
We can review your tank setup also, such as the type/brand of UVB lighting, substrate used,
temperatures & supplementation if you need, just to be sure everything is correct.

this is him. I'll post a picture of his tank when I get home. I took this last night when I was worried his eyes might look sunken.

Hello,

He looks very healthy in this picture & his eyes don't appear to be sunken in either. How is he
doing this evening?
It looks like he has a nice round beardie belly there also. :D Has he eaten anything recently?
Keep trying with misting him outside of his tank, or using a plastic dropper or syringe to drip it
onto the end of his snout. Eventually he will drink one way or another. You could also try
getting a shallow dish & placing him beside it then pouring water into it slowly while he is there
to watch. Swirl the water around with your finger while pouring the water into the dish slowly. It
may peak his interest & he will start to drink that way.
