    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    Unfortunately, Dumpling passed away tonight. We noticed him struggling to breathe and before we could take him to an emergency vet, he was gone. We are devastated. Thank for answering all my questions here. My little guy is at rest now.

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    He drank some water today and hasn't black bearded or acted cranky. He moved around a little too! He has lost quite a but of weight since this summer. His last fecal test was clear but they said he was dehydrated so we started giving him water from a dropper. I believe he did become less...

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    Thanks! We did a lot of research on this site and others to try to give him a nice life! I hope he pulls through 🤞🤞

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    He said there definitely was some swelling near his spleen where the lump is, and that could have something to do with the anemia. He hadn't been eating at all for a few weeks before I felt the lump. This is a pic of his setup. We changed the uvb at the beginning of this month. His old one was...

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    He's a bit brighter today (no dark beard) but still lethargic and eyes still sunken. His head is up though! Edit: but he keeps closing his eyes...

    I think he's a decent vet and the place we go does specialize in exotics. Writes in chicken scratch like a real doctor anyway.

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    Thanks for replying!! Dumpling is somewhere around 2 years old. We got him from a lady who couldn't take care of him anymore so we don't have a hatch day. He slowed down on eating in September but I thought it was a combination of a tough full body shed and cooler weather slowing him down. Then...

    Bearded doing worse after vet visit

    My bearded dragon went to the vet this morning after not eating and seeming kinda off. The vet did a blood test, smear test, and an x-ray. He said my guy was VERY anemic (his words were "his blood looks like koolaid"), had a bacterial infection, and there is a circular swollen region near his...

    Not eating but basking all day

    Here are pictures of Dumpling in his tank right after the lights turned on this morning. He slept on his basking platform.

    Not eating but basking all day

    Measuring with IR gun/digital probes. If my boyfriend or I are in the room he sometimes climbs down to walk around or sit on one of the non-basking platforms to watch us, then climbs back up to bask eventually. Pretty normal for him which is why I'm starting to doubt it's brumation. I'll post a...

    Not eating but basking all day

    Hi! My 2 yr old beardie went off food mid-September. Before that he'd go for his veggies and dubia within minutes after I put the bowl down. Since he's an adult and it's getting colder where I am, I figured he may be starting to brumate. Got a fecal test done 2 weeks ago and he's all clear...

    Dragon runs through poop while I'm at work

    My little rescue has fully recovered from pinworms and now he has healthy poops very regularly around the same time everyday. The only problem is he poops around 11am while I'm at work. I have paper towels down but he gets post-poop zoomies and runs through the poop and gets it everywhere. (I...
