My beardie fell and im very concerned!

Postby Beanboy » Sat Oct 24, 2020 7:29 pm

My beardie fell off my couch. Its not a large drop but I believe she smacked her head. Her frill was somewhat black and after calming her down, she had somewhat of a diarrhea like poop in her cage. I did not see any blood in her mouth or stool, as well as poop, but I'm concerned. She's ignoring food and running about. She also rubs her frill on things. Im really concerned she hurt herself. How can i tell if shes seriously injured or not?

Hello,

Did your dragon land on carpet or a hard wood or tile floor?
Do you have a Frilled dragon or a Bearded dragon? The only way you can really determine
whether or not she is injured is to monitor her behavior for the next day or two. If you don't
see any blood from an external injury, then watch for blood in her stool, marked lethargy,
loss of appetite, inability to move, etc. If she starts to change her behavior too much & is
not herself at all it would be a good idea to take her in to make sure she didn't injure her head
or something of that matter.
