My Beardie Hates Baths

Postby missbrightside » Wed Apr 14, 2021 9:44 am

My little guy throws a fit and makes a huge mess everytime I try to put him in a bath. Is there anything I can do to make bathing more enjoyable for him?

I usually clean the sink and add 80-90°F water (boiled), no higher than his elbows. Is 80-90 degrees the right temperature for the water?

If he doesn't like them I would stop giving him them. If he messes himself you could use a washcloth or something similar to clean him up.

I've stopped giving Charlie baths too, unless he gets poop on himself or is constipated. Otherwise he seems perfectly fine to me, and much happier when he's not in the water. I would like to take him outside in a warm summer rain sometime, just to see what he does.

I use baths to get mine to poo. Easy to dump the dirty water out and rinse the dragon off. If they really need to soak, just put them in clean water after they potty.
