Brumating or ill?

Postby Stover27 » Tue Feb 18, 2020 11:29 am

Hi I was hoping someone could give us some advice. Our 3 year old bearded Dragon isn’t looking well at all. Hasn’t eaten much in 2 months. We thought she was maybe brumating but she now has sunken eyes, a black belly and doesn’t move. Is this common? She also has a large scaleY growth on her back.

Ok that looks bad you need to get her into a vet ASAP --- here is a website to find a vet

I agree, that doesn't look good. A vet visit is highly recommended as soon as possible. You'll want to get a sample of that rough skin tested for a fungal infection and treated accordingly. You can proactively apply some antifungal cream like lamisil to the affected areas. I also suggest offering water by dripping it on her nose to lick up and you can also try the same with some veggie baby food to try and get some nutrients into her.
