Brumation dehydration concerns

Postby SkittlesK » Tue Feb 19, 2019 12:51 pm

Hi guys,
so first off I think my beardie is coming out of brumation.
She started eating again but my concern is she is dehydrated & she is not drinking enough water.
Should I force it on her?
Or let her drink when she is ready.

Also, she's not basking all the time, here and there she will
I'm thinking this part is normal or due to dehydration. Thoughts?

Thanks

Taylor

I vote not forcing her. Try giving a bath (just water) once a day (or every two days). That would help with the dehydration thing.

Yeah I agree dont force her-- she will drink if shes thirsty - give her those baths and if shes thirsty she will drink - you can put a drop on her nose to see if she will lick it off - if she does offer more -- if she doesnt then shes not thirsty

Yeah usually I offer drops on her nose & she licks it up
Not lately though.
I'll just wait, see if she's thirsty later
I'll give her more baths too :)
