Ant Killer

So I took my dragon to a cookout at the neighbors and let him or her (not sure) run around. Not even 5 minutes and it went to a pile of ant killer and licked it……at least it looked like it licked it! I scooped it up quickly and Since then it’s been very lethargic, still eats when put food in front of it face, will drink when I give it drops of water but not moving much at all. Any suggestions?

Hello,

Sorry I missed this post! How is your sweet dragon, were you able to get some activated charcoal for her
or get her to a vet?
What type of ants, fire ants or red ants?

My dragon is back in action! I ended up having to order charcoal online, but by the time it got here all was good! Not sure what was going on?! It was day 2 and he (or she) took a very large poo and all seemed to go back to normal🤷🏻‍♀️

AC is really only effective if given pretty quickly after ingestion of a toxin.

Sounds like your dragon only licked up a little bit of the tasty ant poison, LOL. Add a little bit of extra water to the diet to help flush the kidneys from any residual stress caused from filtering out the ant bait.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
