Signs of injured beardie?

Postby reiddragons » Wed Nov 27, 2019 3:19 pm

Hey everyone,

About two hours ago, had my beardie out and was on the floor. He ran over to burrow by my pant leg and when i mved to get up i'm worried my leg rolled on top of him. I'm concerned he may be injured but he's showing no signs.

How could I tell if he's hurt?

-He's walking normally.
-No black beard.
-He had a bath and swam normally.
-His poop did not look bloody in the bath.
-He's eating.

Are there any indicators for a beardie that is injured?

Hi there, if he's walking + acting like he usually does then there's likely nothing to worry about. :)

Hello,

I agree, unless you put your entire weight on him, he is most likely not injured. If he starts to
limp, become lethargic or black beard then you would want to look a bit closer.
It sounds like though, he is fine. :D

if it was minor and there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with him he's probably fine, maybe just a little startled

Thanks everyone. He seems ok but he did gape today - he only gapes under his heat lamp, and he was under it...so he doesn't seem to be doing anything unusual.

Is there anything I should look for? Again, he only gaped under his heat lamp like normal.

Hello,

If he normally doesn't gape under his heat lamp, then maybe double check the temperatures
to be sure it is all good for him.
If he is injured you should be able to determine that pretty well. He may start black bearding,
having a lack of appetite, limping, lethargic behavior, etc. If he isn't exhibiting any of those signs
yet then he should be just fine.

Hi Tracie,

He wasn't hungry today, didn't seem at all interested in his crickets. He ate between last Thrusday and today though. The lack of appetite today is likely unrelated, right?

Hello,

Yes, it is most likely unrelated to that incident. Has he shown any signs of brumation or is
he old enough for that yet? If he is going to shed he might not be as hungry as normal either.

Hes only 7 months, not old enough for bringing. However, he is showing the signs, and it,is cold outside with less sun.

Oh god, is my,baby ok?
