Respiratory Infection? please help!

Postby MushuDaBeardie » Sat Jan 25, 2020 1:55 pm

Hello! Mushu my, 1 1/2 year old beardie, recently went into brumation! He did it last year, I took him to the vet before he did last year and everything went fine! But this year he came out and he started wheezing/coughing. I found him coughing up mucus and have been researching non stop as this really scares me! I want to take him to the vet but it's currently a Saturday and everything is closed! I live about 1 hr away from an exotic vet and I am really scared for his health. I have no experience in the area of sick beardie's and I really would like some help! What should I do? I have upped his heat as I've read. I am using a 150w heat bulb along with a CHE to add to his heat. I have also removed his water bowl and I am unsure about giving him a bath.

Do not bathe him if you suspect a RI -- please get him into the vet asap -- it sounds like hes got a RI going -- here is a website to find a vet closer if there is one
