Do you have an after hours emergency animal clinic anywhere near you? If so, call and see if anyone there works on exotics. Would really be worth a try. Some of those emergency guys are GOOD!

I am so sorry that your girl is having such difficulty.
I wanted to say...Hugs! I know what you are going through is so difficult. :cry:

If you do not mind I'd like to ask a few question to speed up any suggestions I might have.

What does your girls eyes look like? Are they sunken in any? Does she have darkness under her eyes that you would not normally see?
Would it be possible to post a pic showing them?
How often is she having the labored breaths/breathing?
When she gaps her mouth can you see any excess phlem/mucus?
What are the night time temps when lights are out? Low is what I'm looking for.
When and what was it she last ate before acting this way?

Sorry for all the questions, but it's quicker than trying to read up.

Oh, and why is it that beardies seem to always have issues on the weekends when our vets are not available? :roll:

Again Prayers and Hugs!

We have an update she ate a few pieces of romane lettuce then I put her back. Before I put her back she grabbed onto me finger like she always does. I laid her back in her cage and she chased a cricket about 3 inches and ate it. She is still laying there on her belly but she is holding her head up. About her appearance she looks like she is fine she just looks skinny now like she is underfed that's why I'm thinking it was impaction from a too big of cricket. I wasn't expecting her to make it through the night but now I think she's gonna make it.

Wonderful, great news. Keep us updated as I am thinking of her the next few days.

So she went back to being like she was yesterday and then about 30min I got her to perk up again and then its back to lifeless.. its really strange. Her eyes look the same she does flicker her eye lids really fast every now and then. But I can still get her to eat as long as I feed her by hand..

Just a thought :study:

Glad to hear she will still eat. She is hanging on, and hopefully can be seen by the vet tomorrow. You're doing a great job! I'll be watching for updates as you can post them.
Ditto what Esther said!

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
Mirage entered brumation yesterday, I'm gonna miss hanging out with my little guy.
