I put my baby bearded dragon in a bath because he was shedding and he started trying to swim/try to climb out of it and then he just stopped and sinked his head in the water and then I drained some of the water out thinking I put too much in and when I put him back in a realized his stomach was sucked in and he wasn’t moving his arms or legs so I thought he was dead but when I try to put him on his back he moves his back and whips his tail in protest, he’s also slowing breathing and his eyes are closed majority of the time. I don’t know what to do please help

I'm sorry to say but that baby does not look like it's going to make it. Something very serious is going on and it looks like he won't recover. Sorry that this happened, was he alert + eating before ?

Hello,

Oh my, I was wondering the same thing, was he not doing well before the bath? Could he have
aspirated any water? Please hold him & try to check on his breathing, etc. Maybe try to angle him
downward in case he did aspirate water, but he definitely doesn't look well.
Please let us know how he is doing.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
