    Only right lung is moving when breathing?

    He seems to be getting good hydration levels, but now it seems his RI has come back yet again. He has been breathing with his mouth open a lot, and I pulled a bit of what seemed like snot out of his nose. It's a constant battle with this guy! He has a pretty good appetite again so I am just glad...

    Only right lung is moving when breathing?

    Hey everyone, Dimitri has been sick from the day I got him. Had a real bad respiratory infection, start of MBD, and little to no appetite. The doc suggests I feed him baby food by syringe for the next three weeks, which has been working quite well. He is finally looking healthy. Until I...

    Lighting for Bioactive Tank

    Hey everyone, I have been toying with the idea of switching my beardie over to bioactive for more enrichment and fun. Everything is set up, I am just giving the new tank (36x18x18 Exo Terra) some time to develop first before putting him in there. The only thing that is stumping me is...

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    Hey Colleen, what was your deciding factor of putting him down? I’m so sorry to hear about that. I just don’t want him to keep suffering if he is always going to have problems.

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    He is actually doing much worse since the vet has given him the meds. He hasn’t eaten in two days and won’t even stand anymore. I have gave him some water with a dropper today. I just don’t understand how he could have even developed mbd if that’s what he has, the uvb is the T5 High Output...

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    They didn’t say they did an enema, so hopefully that was true. I have a ceramic heater for night. I will just keep tabs on him and hopefully he will be doing better tomorrow. Thank you

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    I know, this is really disheartening. He is doing a lot worse ever since his visit with the vet today. He just pooped blood a few moments ago. I'm really at a loss with what to do. There was not a reason to give him the injections and they were done before actually confirming everything with me...

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    Hey Tracie, I took him to the vet today. They gave him a few shots of antibiotics and liquid calcium supplement. The vet says it was MBD. Not sure how this could have happened. The calcium brand is zoomed I believe. I try not to give the Nekton Rep too often. Swelling has gotten worse and I...

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    Hello Tracie, The T5 is Reptisun by Zoomed. There is no screen covering it. I dust his food quite frequently to get his levels back up as far as calcium goes. I also dust with Nekton Rep a couple times a week for added vitamins. When he was sick they only thing he would eat was Repta Boost by...

    The T5 HO is on top of the tank without a screen obstructing it. It sits about 12 inches away. I haven’t made an appointment for blood test yet. He just went through a round of antibiotics and a shot of B-Complex vitamins. The vet gave him a dewormer as well last time I went and it seemed to be...

    Gout in baby bearded dragon?

    Hello everyone, I have had Dimitri for a few months now. He’s about 9 inches in length. We’ve had lots of ups and downs. He was sick with what the vet believed to be a respiratory infection after not eating for weeks and eventually not being able to move his back legs. Now we’ve nursed him...
