Please help my beardie is spitting up what looks like blood

Postby Savage530 » Thu Apr 09, 2020 7:15 pm

Hey guys my bearded dragon Lizzy Mcguire hasn’t ate or drank anything in about 4-5 days and hasn’t digested anything in about a week. She’s been throwing up the past 3 days and today I finally seen her throw up and got a video. She’s really sucked up and looks dehydrated I’ve tried to get her to drink through a syringe and I’ve given her 3 baths today hoping it will help. Also behind her eyes on like the top of her skull it’s really sunken in looking. Please any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Hi,

Unfortunately that's done very serious signs that something is very wrong. How old is lizzie?

I know its difficult right now with what's going on in the world, but do you have a reptile vet you can take her to?

It sounds like organ failure based off the sudden sunken fat pads and vomiting. Try to keep up the oral hydration and try to get some food in her in slurry form such as squash baby food.

Keeping her a bit warmer overnight will help too. Aiken for around 80.
But really at this point she needs a vet.

Hey bro so I took her to a vet and they’re saying pretty much what you said her liver is failing pretty bad and she’s not in good condition. They’re saying she may need to stay over night and get shipped to a reptile specialist in the morning they said for only tonight it’s $800 and I unfortunately don’t have the funds for that with everything going on. I don’t know what to do man. Thanks for replying I really appreciate it.

Hello,

Oh no, that isn't good how awful for you both. :cry:
Is there any way they can let you pay it out? Are they saying she needs surgery or what was
their opinion?
Is she home with you with now? All you can do is try to keep her comfortable & as Brandon
suggested, hydrated as much as you can with water & a thin baby food slurry. Bless her.
Did they do any blood work? She is pretty critical so I'm not sure they would have done blood
work on her.
I will keep you two in my thoughts. Let us know how she is doing.
