Bearded dragon acting lazy and not eating

My bearded dragon isn’t interested in any good today, except baby applesauce. She is acting very lazy and hasn’t moved from her spot all day! I gave her her greens this morning as usual and put in a super worm and she has zero interest in it (usually she is gung-ho for them!) right now she is sitting on her pillow infront of the window as I move her in the afternoons to give her a different view, it just started today but I have noticed her slowing down over the last week. She is still alert just not wanting to eat today… could she potentially be going into burmation?

She ate one super worm this morning and now her beard looks swollen! I didn’t really notice it before but I really noticed it today! I am not close to any reptile vets as I am pretty rural where I am! Is there anything I can give her to help with swelling

She drank water and will eat the baby purée I got for her but will completely ignore the super worms or if they get close to her she closes her eyes like she’s stressed about them!

Is she a Dunner? Dunners are known to hold food in their throats. Also try offering other feeders, they get bored sith their food.

I’m not sure what that is or how to tell if she is one?
Can you post a pic of her chin from underneath and her tail from above? Dunner is a scale mutation, instead of being uniform the belly and chin scales are haphazard, they are more rangey looking. It also breaks up the chevrons on their tails. The tails can even be spotted with Dunners. (Also they have bigger feet). It's a cool morph 🙂

Ok, not a Dunner. Still may be holding food though. My big male does it with water most times, oddly neither of my actual Dunners do it.

She is only taking baby purée this morning. Im going to try wax or horn worms tonight to see if it’s because it’s soft food

How long does brumation generally last?
Our beardie started acting lethargic like a couple of weeks ago. Doesn't seem very interested in and food. Seems like he just wants to Hull up under his bridge not close to his UVB. His set up got changed about a week before he started acting this way, his perch wasn't under the UVB like it should be so I thought that was the issue then the bulb burned out. Got it all set up the way it needs to be and not so much the problem.
So I am just wondering how many weeks that can carry on?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
