Poor thing! Think you're doing the best you can for her given the circumstances. It sounds like she really took a hit from the enema + maybe getting ready to brumate, and it may be touch & go for a while. Until you can get her back to the vet, I'd say to keep her warm and as comfortable as possible, and follow AHBD's suggestions about Critical Care. I'd also spend more time with her as she goes through this difficult stretch. I know beardies aren't people, but I can't see any downside to a good, long beardie snuggle at a time like this. Pulling for you both!

Since she is black bearding that is a serious indication that she is in distress. Was she black bearding before you went to the vet for the first time?

Unfortunately with these recent developments it's really necessary to have her be seen by a competent reptile vet. Do you have a different vet that is near you that could see you today?

I'm sorry but I wouldn't trust your current vet. And I'm thinking you might want to stop the loxicom too, it can be a bit taxing on the system, but I'd wait for someone else to come and back me up on that before deciding.

Aw, poor girl really looks wiped out and in serious condition. I agree that the enema was not necessary, many beardies have degrees of digesting food in their systems most of the time. When my guys are slowing for brumation they go for a couple of weeks with no poo and then sleep for a 3-4 weeks at a time, up to 2-3 months with no pooing then either. For now it's good to try to get some Critical Care or other supplement in her. If she doesn't like the flavor of it you can add a tiny bit of fruit juice [ not acidic ] raw honey or a home made smoothie. You might also try some Repta boost if your pet store carries it. Her system was totally flushed out and she may [ or may not ] have had some slight health problem prior to the enema but an enema can at times wreak havoc on a small animal's system. How long + what strength was she on the Loxicam ? That also could effect her because side effects are nausea, vomiting, dizziness,so now that you took her off of it she may be able to get better little by little. Don't give up hope, she may still rally + overcome this.
