RIP Mushu

Postby Nik6ix » Mon Apr 06, 2020 7:04 pm

Today I had an unfortunate event, my year old beardie passed away of what seem to be a stroke, this afternoon he seemed perfectly fine basking in his hammock he got up had a poop, was running around, cleaned it up left the room to discard of waste an wash hands by time I came back in he was laying back down, I took him out to run around a bit but as I went to get him I noticed his beard was going black and his mouth was gapping. I brought him out anyways an put him on me he felt cold an stiff and his bottom half was turning blacker, I brought his container of crickets out an when he wouldn’t go for them I knew something was wrong. I called our vet for an emergency visit (as our vet is closed to walk-ins due to Covid) our vet was nice enough to take him on her lunch break by time we reached the vet no more than 10-15mins later they came back out and told me he was becoming colder, stiffer an they couldn’t find a heart beat😢. I’ve been trying to do some research on beardies and strokes and there doesn’t seem to be much info. I came across an article written by someone a few years ago who’s beardie passed almost the exact same way even down to taking a poop right before.. does anyone know of possible cause.. it just seem so left field all within 40mins to hour he was perfectly fine to passed away. This was my first experience as a Beardie owner and although it was short he will never be forgotten, and Thankyou to this website for helping us along the way with tips, suggestions and general info during puberty & him having pesticides.
