Sick Beardie!

Postby red10484 » Sat Oct 31, 2020 9:27 am

Help! My beardie is black and struggling to breathe. He was literally fine this morning. I don't have the means for a vet right now. Covid has a previously fine family struggling right now.

Your dragon is in distress--- please post pics of him and you can post a video on youtube of him breathing - post the link in the message box -- in the meantime what are his basking temps and how are you taking them? NO stick ons --- and your UVB brand and bulb? NO coils -- what is the humidity in the tank

Im not sure how to take a pic on here. Im very aware he is in distress. I called the only emergency clinic in my town and they wont see him. His temps are 101( I bumped them up a little). His humidity is 30%. I have an infra red temp gun for temps and a digital thermometer. He had a t5 HO uv its long. I have been googling all afternoon. I have him propped in his viv so his head is facing downward at 10/15 degree angle. I did try a warm bath and he didnt scurry about. He is completely black bearded and his belly is slightly black as well. Our regular vet hasnt returned my call. Please is there anything else I can do?? Do you have facebook?? Could we link there? I can send pics and video

try this website for a reptile vet http://www.arav.org
Why do you have him at a angle did he aspirate water ? Post a video of him on youtube take the link from you tube and post here in the message box --- we need Tracie or AHBD to see it and have them help here -- your UVB should be 12-15 inches in the tank directly above the basking decor piece -- he really needs to go in ---- asap---- please use the vet address I posted and see if you can find someone else -- your vet should of taken him in right away --- is there mucous coming out the nose and mouth ?
