Bearded Dragon fell in the pool

The men were apparently horsing around outside pushing one another and Buddy had enough and took a flying leap off of my SO and into the pool.

He was immediately scooped up out of the water and he seems to be fine and didn’t do any movements that would suggest he inhaled water but I would like to know what should I keep a look out for just in case he did manage to breathe in a little water.

As of right now, his beard and body is normal happy vibrant outside colors and he seems pretty happy with himself.

Hi there,

The good news is if you haven't seen any issues pop up by now, you should be out of the woods :)

In the future, for anyone who has a similar situation, a quick little warm bath to wash off any chlorine wouldn't hurt.

Thank you Brandon. Buddy was rinsed immediately with some warm bottled water and got to hang out with his favorite person (my SO) while he dried off in the sun.

He’s shown no signs that his quick dunk in the pool was anything more or less than a brief adventure that scared the socks off of his humans.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
