    Baby Beardie Not Eating

    She was still too small to do a blood test... 27 grams I believe... the vet said he didn't think Allopurinol would get her to the point where she was able to lead a normal life, although he didn't go into detail as to why. I was pretty overwhelmed at the time and wish I would have asked for more...

    Baby Beardie Not Eating

    Hi there!!!! I hope that Moonshine is doing better! I'm a worrier too, so I certainly relate. I have some sad news about Brea- we had to put her to sleep last week. She stopped eating insects on her own, and I was syringe feeding her exclusively. Her joints became extremely swollen and she could...

    Hi Tracie, Thank you for the info! She hasn't been pooping as regularly since she's been on the Critical Care, but I can send out a sample as soon as I have something to send. Here's a picture of Brea from this morning! She's definitely doing better, and I hope she's back to eating on her own...

    Hi Tracie, Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it! Yes, I would love to get her tested and would really appreciate your help in making that happen—please let me know how to proceed! The vet didn't suggest liquid calcium — he brought up MBD but didn't seem to think that was very...

    I do really like our vet- he specializes in reptiles and has always been great. she did perk up a bit after the feeding, although she was still pretty lethargic when i took her back home. i had to go into the office and when i left she was chilling on her basking log. so we'll see how she's...

    thank you all for your well wishes! we went to the vet this morning... she's indeed too small for a blood draw— she is 27 grams right now. the doctor thinks that it's most likely ADV, based on what he was seeing. he gave her a tube feeding and fluids, as he thought she was dehydrated as well. He...

    He didn't check her for ADV yet, although he said that based on observation he didn't think that was likely. I'm wondering if it's neurological? or hopefully i'm freaking out for no reason. i know my husband thinks i've gone off the deep end lol. i'm really hoping we can get some bloodwork done-...

    this is so helpful, thank you! i'll get this set up as soon as i get home, how long would you recommend keeping her in there? we feed her dubias primarily and dust them with calcium and repashy supervite 5x per week. she's not super into veggies but will eat dandelion greens sometimes. we also...

    Hi Karrie- thank you for getting back to me so quickly! We use a Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 T5 HO, inside her enclosure, about 13 inches above the basking spot. She's in a Zen Habitats 4 x 2 x 2 enclosure. i use a 100W halogen for the basking spot and I also have a CHE bulb in there; because of where...

    Hi all- i am desperately in search of some answers for my sweet beardie, Brea. She's not very old, around 3 months we think, and we've had her since August. We have a vet appointment tomorrow morning, but in the meantime I'm hoping others in the community may have experienced something similar...

    Baby Beardie Still Not Eating- Please Help!

    Yes, BSFL were recommended to me and i'm definitely going to give them a try. Thankfully, things are going much better with Brea! The Fluker's Repta-Boost really helped! She's filled out significantly and is way more active. Yesterday she ate 6 dubia and a wax worm on her own! My main concern...
