    GNT Cancer

    Hi there, my precious girl taro had suspected GNT, we even went through the xray which showed the mass. She had surgery to remove the mass and it was biopsied. It turned out though that it wasn't GNT at all, it was an abscess. She had a fair chance of recovering at the time but she also had...

    Deep Heat Projection & LED bar for 4x2x2

    I use the DHE too, my girl loves sitting beneath it. She even seems to prefer it over the halogen (I've put my hand under both and surprisingly the DHE seems more targeted and powerful)

    8 month male will only eat butter worms & hornworms

    I was scared of this too ,my Charlie was a bit over a year when I nipped it in the bud, she still had a little growing to do... but they can go a short bit (1 week or so) without it causing damage. When he's hungry enough he will eat other protien- just monitor to be sure hes not losing weight...

    8 month male will only eat butter worms & hornworms

    I used to have this problem (except it was super worms !) I ended up weaning her off. I dropped the supers to just once a week and continued with BSFL on a different day (bugs just 2 days a week). Then I dropped supers altogether and introduced different veggies. Now she eats anything I give her...

    Beardie not eating much or moving has lots of black mark

    It sounds like he's looked after pretty good other than the small adjustments karieree suggested, if he's been eating mealworms as a staple I'd envisage him to be a bit fatter as they are very fatty bugs, though this can vary depending on feeding schedule too. He's still juvenile so it's...

    Beardie not eating much or moving has lots of black mark

    Hi there, sorry your dragon isn't doing too good. Could you please post your set up? (Including lighting, heat, humidity etc? That looks like a Zen habitat but might be good to post dimensions anyway too) He looks a little on the thin side, and his fat pads are sunken. This could be because of...

    18 month old hiding all day

    Sorry I know it's been over a month since I've posted this. Just thought I'd update to advise that you guys here were correct. I took her to the vet and there wasn't anything really wrong. They even did an ultrasound to be sure. They gave me a food supplement- for her to have once a week. She...

    18 month old hiding all day

    Yes I gave her another bath today and she pooped a pretty average looking poop; I collected it to bring in. Good to know about the enemas I'll make sure to always opt out

    18 month old hiding all day

    She basked for maybe 20 minutes or so this morning and went to hide again; though she doesn't look particularly unhealthy she just seems moody. I think I found out the cause; 1. Her lips are a little puffy and have some faded looking colour around them 2. I have pics of her from Thurs where she...

    18 month old hiding all day

    Its good to know they can go into sleepy periods unprovoked; the vet wasnt worried when she was 375g at 16.5inches so im glad to know 400g isnt too off the mark for 17, she doesn't particularly look obese but again i would like to wean her off the supers and get her onto more salads; i think the...

    18 month old hiding all day

    thanks for reply; do you think 400g is too heavy for a 17 inch dragon? she has put on some weight (25g) but she also grew 1/2 inch since i weighed her in August so perhaps the 25g comes with that i would think it may be brumation if it weren't for the season- though we are into spring now. Is...

    Charlie 1y ago vs today

    Petite pogona :lol: yes she is ! The vet described her as very "humanized" with her expressive behaviour and seeming desire to be handled; but truthfully shes spoiled utterly rotten and I swear she thinks she's the only beardie in the world haha

    Male BD is not very well

    Oh the mouth is very red and inflamed, I can't see the teeth ? Looks like stomatitis; the entire mouth looks very inflamed and angry- needs urgent antibiotics and something for pain most likely; good that the vet opens soon- put him in a warm towel/carrier and get him there asap! The black...

    Male BD is not very well

    Ooh no poor boy; he does not look well, it looks most likely a respiratory infection. he needs to be seen by a vet ASAP if it is a respiratory infection it shouldn't cost you a ton to fix, even if he requires nebulizer meds - but the sooner the better, these can go pear shaped very fast Make...
