    Boundless energy!!!

    The light thing can be done with different lights not sure but your phone torch may work? Just be careful when doing so as you don’t want to bend them about too much if they do have eggs but agree with above comment. I wouldn’t at all let them mount eachother or even be out at the same time,they...

If they are then it could be egg laying behaviour,scratching and wanting out can be signs she looking for somewhere to lay.If she turns out to be a he then he is trying to mate and get to the female,I have 2 boys and 2...

    How long can beardies be (act) gravid?

    I agree! This forum has helped me so much with my 4 little bambino’s! She should only needed an ultrasound but sometimes they’re not visible and a blood test will show if she’s got eggs or in the process! As I say with bee the minute they put the scanner on lil belly you could see so many...

    How long can beardies be (act) gravid?

    Hi! My girl bee was Gravid (from when I knew) for about 2 weeks before she needed to be spayed,she stopped eating and started bobbing frequently.She was digging and she was glass surfing,although she had a black beard for the 2 weeks as well as the other behaviours.Im not sure on an extract time...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you! She’s still on meloxicam and lactulose,since stopping the antibiotics she’s seemed less upset.I’m trying to cut the painkillers down but she struggles with the pain and the same with the laxatives she struggles to poo without them but I will try the natural things you’ve suggested.She...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Hi, Unfortunately honey doesn’t seem very good.She doesn’t want to move and has her eyes mainly half shut.She did have some rocket earlier which she seemed to enjoy but seems more lethargic.She just looks really tired and fed up if I’m being honest,her chest/belly looks bloated and she seems...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you so much,she’s actually doing better with pooing.It still causes pain but she’s doing regular sized poos,occasionally it is small again but for 2 days she’s been having good sized poos so it’s a good bit of news.She will always be loved regardless of if she’s still here with us,just...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Hi, I have a few updates on honey.My vet doesn’t think that a spay will resolve the issue,she also feels as though we’d be putting honey through too much with the recovery.She’s been back to the vets yesterday and we had a look on her scan,again there were no eggs or follicles and her uterus was...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Hi, I spoke to the vet and she has given me some lactolose (think that’s the name,its a laxative) and another med called emeprid.Have you had any experience with emeprid,from what I can see online it’s to help her stomach.I’m giving her the first dose tomorrow,she’ll be on 4 separate meds and...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Hi, Yes still black bearding will go down about an hour before bed but other than that it’s always there as well as her tail.I’ve been diluting the enrocare which seems to help but she still isn’t very happy.The vet said about next Thursday but I don’t know if it’s good to wait that long.Honey...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Sorry to reply again before you’ve had a chance to read the first one but I’m a worried about honey.She has a slight black beard when she gets up but after her medications it’s very black and so is her tail.It stays like this for the rest of the day until about an hour before bed.I rang vets up...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you! Money is tight right now after bees surgery as well so don’t mind something cheaper than manuka! Luckily,my vet has said we can do a payment scheme with this surgery so it’s not going to be a lump sum which helps with other expenses and vet visits. Honey went vets this morning,zoe...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you! I am thinking of going Holland and Barrett which is a reputable health store,her lip actually looks a lot better but will still get some of the honey.I did read about some places selling it under false pretences,when it’s not actually unpasteurised! Will have a look into any local...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Does anyone know what the best type of honey is for them? I’ve heard about Manuka honey but it’s quite expensive at around £40,I’ve found some for £18 so am happy to pay that but am also happy to get something cheaper as long as it works! She’s been shedding her mouth area and now has caused a...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you for the replies! Means a lot to both me and honey,she’s getting rocket,cucumber and kale at the moment.She will eat anything given so am happy to try any suggestions.She won’t eat slurries,that’s the only things she will run from.When I first got her she couldn’t eat because her jaw...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Thank you,she’s as sweet as honey🐝! I would much rather try to get her to lay than spay but am willing to if vets thinks it is her only option. Today she has been a bit worse she had a black beard and tail tip for a few hours,she’s had shredded rocket and has calmed down and basking.Her tail and...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    I can tomorrow,she’s just really squished up if that makes sense.She’s small about 300g and half the size of bee.It’s really hard to know what to do,she’s seeing her regular vet Monday so we should know a bit more.The pain meds have helped a lot,she’s still eating just hoping the vet on Monday...

    Spay on stunted rescue.

    Hi guys, I recently made a post about my girl bee needing to be spayed,she had the spay and is doing very good. I’m not sure if I have bad luck or if it’s just due to the fact it’s becoming more of an issue but my other rescue honey is now due to be spayed as well.She’s been acting very off the...
