    New beardie stinks of cigarettes

    Thanks for the suggestions; I’ll hold off on the baths then. funny thing about the lemon juice suggestion.. Earlier today during suntime he ran through some lizard tail plants by the pond. Those have a bit of a citrus scent and that seems to have helped get some of the cigarette smell off him...

    New beardie stinks of cigarettes

    I just adopted a 1 year old (hatched May 2021) male dragon from Craigslist Monday evening. After giving him two baths (one immediately upon coming home with him cos he was absolutely filthy and one yesterday cos he still had hard stuff stuck to his beard), he began to reek of cigarette smoke...

    Septicemia

    Thanks, I’ll see if I can find some honey and try that. He does like sweet stuff and likes bee pollen, so hopefully that would help encourage him. I just only seem to have a brief window around 10am when he’s able and willing to take feedings.

    Adopted a bearded dragon with one Eyeball bigger than the other

    My boy has the same exact thing. He seems to be nearsighted in that eye and farsighted in the other. He‘s never been able to hunt his own feeders, so I’ve had to tong-feed those. Also he has no spacial awareness or depth perception, so I have to be careful he doesn’t walk off things and has...

    Septicemia

    He awoke a bit better this morning; he was awake from about 8am to noon and eagerly ate just under 2ml of his critical care slurry. He also took his Orbax dose with no resistance. But that was all he was willing/able to take. His color was a little better, but he was still very weak and still...

    Septicemia

    She said it was Baytril with some fluids and B vitamins. It was just for the one time in her office. At home I am to give him 0.1ml daily of Orbax, which I am glad for cos he willingly takes that medicine and it doesn't seem to have as bad of side-effects for him. (His vet had prescribed it in...

    Septicemia

    He's really not doing well today. After the injection last night, he went pale and has been that way all day. He's also been very lethargic. He woke up a bit midmorning for a poo and 1ml of pumpkin baby food (refused his critical care slurry, but did take the pumpkin well from the syringe)...

    Septicemia

    Thanks for responding; sorry I haven't replied sooner today as I'd been spending the day trying to contact his vet (who we did get to see tonight.) Since he was so poorly Saturday, in desperation I went ahead and gave him 0.1ml of the Orbax on Sunday. By the late afternoon he seemed to pick up...

    Septicemia

    Please I need some advice for my boy. It's a long story of how we got to this point (which I will get to after) but the urgent point is he has septicemia and I have no way of getting him treated until Monday evening when his vet opens. I have some antibiotics left over that are still within...

    Beardie has allergic asthma?!?

    Update on my Ajkula: I brought him to his vet last night (they were booked on Friday). She gave me an ointment for his eyes because they were irritated, but said there aren’t many options for his asthma beyond what I’m already doing. I’m just to keep up with the nebulizer and the prednisone...

    Beardie has allergic asthma?!?

    Thank you so much for replying! I really appreciate your time and trying to help me. About the fur pets, I do have two chihuahuas and two cats... Hence why I have to keep my house so clean and run air filters in every room. (Also I use a pellet litter system for the cats so there is no dust.)...
