Sunken fat pads

Postby Kmehaffey1 » Fri Oct 11, 2019 11:19 am

I have a almost 3 year old female bearded dragon who is currently laying and her fat pads have been sunken in for weeks. I give her baths all the time and she drinks every once in a while but they are still sunken in. She’s very chunky, a little over a pound so I know she isn’t too skinny or malnourished. what can I do? Should I worry?

Hi there,

I agree, pics would help.

If you think shes chunky, I wouldnt really worry about her fat pads. Or are you concerned she isnt hydrated well enough?

What does her daily diet look like with quantities.
Make sure she is getting extra calcium if shes laying.

You can use this link for this sites image uploader:
https://www.beardeddragon.org/useruploads/

Once you upload, you can click your picture and copy and paste the XIMG code to you post, and it will show up as your picture :)

How is your girl doing now? It's been a week or so, did she lay her eggs?
