    new dragon hiding from uvb

    That's great you had a fecal done! Yes, just turn the UVB light off so she will come to bask and warm up. Warming up is very important. She will be ok without the UVB for a short while. I'd rest her eyes for 3-4 days and try the UVB again. If she is still sensitive and hides again you can turn...

    new dragon hiding from uvb

    Do you know her approximate age? Baby, juvenile or adult? What do you measure temps with? Are you measuring basking surface for basking temp? Proper temps are very important for their general health, all metabolic processes, digestion, absorption and good immune system. Zilla 50 UVB have...

    Hi Jen, That's great the vet didn't find tophi. I've not heard of septic arthritis pushing the joint apart, but there are many things I've not heard of. :) Since the vet already did an aspiration of fluid to check for tophi she probably checked for microbes. Was a culture sent? Poor girl, I hope...

    Sarth, Daeds, & Starling **5/28 First Camping Trip Pics!**

    Hi Jen, This has probably already been thought of by your vet and he would be in the best position to assess but I'm just brain storming. I'm wondering about septic arthritis which effects joints, making them swell, and is very painful. It can spread to other joints. Even though she was on an...

    Hi, I'm a friend of Sweetiepie9. I have 2 AV+ dragons. I have 14 dragons all together. It can be managed and protect your other dragon/s. I'm not understanding what's going on medically with her and that may have some effect on her over all health. I've asked a friend of mine who is the expert...

    4 month old beardie not ate for a week now...

    Possibly you mean Beech wood chips for substrate? It is also called Beach wood. {Sadly some uneducated pet shops recommend some bad things for bearded dragons.} The first thing is any and all wood is a horrible substrate. Uncomfortable for them to walk on, the possibility of being wounded or...

    Another rescue for us...

    Being that you have rescued before you may already know not to give her any protein for at least a while, maybe a few weeks. When an animal, any animal is starved, their body will shut down systems to conserve energy. If she is starved and emaciated her kidneys may not be working, or working...

    Sand.. why not?

    Bearded Dragons come from Australia where it is called desert because of low rain fall, not because Australia is a sand dune desert. Think "The Outback." though the dragons are found in several areas in Australia. The ground is dry and hard packed. Bearded Dragons mainly live in trees, scrub...

    Thanks Everyone, I have a friend, a good friend who is not a reptile person and doesn't appreciate how wonderful Bearded Dragons are. She knows I love and adore mine, even laughs about it sometimes, all in good fun. She just doesn't get it! Thinking she was helping she said "You are really sad...

    Tail rot!!

    Hi, As you know Tail Rot is a serious infection. Rule of thumb, if the current treatment isn't working you need to let the vet know so an alternative treatment can be prescribed. I'd get Damien to a vet ASAP. Tail Rot can become a fast traveling infection and move up his tail toward his body...

    Unsure I am feeding enough

    Hi, Hatchling through to sub adults at about 16 months old should be fed 2-3 times a day, all the bugs they will eat in a 10-15 minute period. That is a lot of bugs, and have fresh daily greens. :) Amanda

    Is he ok?

    Hi, First, Thank you for taking him. He needed you! :love5: Yes, beardies shed randomly, not like snakes that comes off in one piece. He does look to be in shed. Giving him a warm bath can help soften the shed and probably feels good to the dragons, I can only imagine it must itch or...
