bath under a faucet?!?!

Postby MangoKush1313 » Tue Jun 30, 2020 12:50 pm

I seriously, just watched a video of someone holding their BD, and letting the faucet water run over them; granted, the BD looked calm and even lapped up some water but......I thought you shouldnt let water get in their little vents?!?! Is this a thing?

Not good - I would think more of ear infections etc-- dropping water on the nose or spraying is ok but not letting the faucet run over the head

That's very dangerous, a respiratory or ear infection is almost certainly in this animals future. Please tell anyone you know that that is not safe at all.

Yeah it's too bad that some others will think it's O.K. Here are a few videos showing beardie's given water the right way.

I know :( I commented on that post; was curious as to where in the world they possibly learned that that was how to bathe your BD!

So as a side question....

We give our Kush a bath once a week; we drip water on her nose but it's hard to tell really if she's getting any. I haven't seen her actually extend her tongue or anything to get some.

With that being said, do you guys think I should also incorporate a dropper, and see if that's any better? Sometimes I get worried because I have seen bearded dragons actually actively, drink or go to water.
