I've had OzMonkey since he was a few weeks old. The pet store had no clue of the age. He is just over 3 years now and within the last 2 months has had the same issues as this discussion title. Only, we've not seen a vet dude to our city on lockdown due to Covid.

My dragon has not eaten or drank water in that time and his right arm has been very swollen and at first, he drug it around.

For the past few days/night she won't move at all. He won't go after the superworms or dubias. I try and forced feed, he just closes his eyes with solid black beard and pale gray undercarriage.

I've had him sleep with my cat, OzMonkey be resting on cars back or belly. For 3 years, OzMonkey is very comfortable with Kidd, my older Mainecoon, is very to tolerate of him.

I have a mobile vet coming to the house, Monday August 17th, 2020 and I don't know what to expect.

Other than a dead dragon.

Hi there, sorry to hear about your dragon, he does sound very ill. Please start a new thread so that people can help with his issues, hopefully something can be done. Include all the info about exact lights you have, what Oz was eating, etc. Post pics of Oz, a close up of his arm and full body picture and also pics of his enclosure and the lighting. Hopefully Oz can be saved. Here's how to post pics : Then use the XIMG to upload them
