    Enclosure feedback

    Hello, I have a 1.5 year old male beardie and he's always been a lazy boy who refuses to eat much salad so I wanted to get some feedback on my viv to see if anyone had any suggestions to see if there may be something bothering him or to make him more active. It's a 4x2x2 zen with an Arcadia...

    Blackbeard, sunken eyes after vet yesterday

    Ok yeah, I think it must have been the blood draw. He's black bearding less today and he even accepted a hornworm so I think he's slowly starting to feel better.

    Blackbeard, sunken eyes after vet yesterday

    He is ADV positive so I just take him in to monitor bloodwork occasionally. It's just weird because he was totally normal before I took him in. The vet said the bloodwork was fine, they didn't put any units for the AST so I wasn't sure if that was elevated or not. I don't think they did anything...

    I wasn't in the room when the exam was done, they did tell me that he was very stressed for the blood draw

    Blackbeard, sunken eyes after vet yesterday

    So I posted here yesterday because I took my beardie to the vet yesterday for a wellness exam and he was fine, then he started blackbearding and acting funny.

    black beard after vet

    So I took my beardie to the vet today for a wellness exam and bloodwork and he was fine. I think maybe he was a little overstimulated though, when I brought him back home he was fine for a while then suddenly while basking he started gaping and blackbearding and freaking out. I put him in his...

    More hiding?

    My 1 year old beardie has been spending more time hiding lately, in the morning he'll go straight to his hide and falls asleep early. I plop him back in his basking spot and he'll stay there for a while normally. Besides that he's eating and pooping normally. He should be done bruminating at...

    Hard Urates

    he does get butternut and acorn squash. I can try to add more squash but Im worried the hard urates are a hydration problem but I'm not sure how to hydrate him more

    Do Beardies bruminate longer up north?

    My 1.5 year old beardie has been semi bruminating since November and I thought he was starting to come out of it but he's gone back to going to bed at noon again. I live up north so the sun still sets pretty early this time of year so I was wondering if anyone else had beardies that bruminate...

    Not pooping as much?

    Ok thanks, I take him to a board certified reptile vet and she told me any amount of D3 can cause toxicity, but I'd be curious to know if it's necessary even with good UVB.
