Beardie not eating?!

Beardie name(s)
Blue
Hey! I recently moved houses. My beardie seems to not be eating her food since. She will eat one bite of something every day or so, but that's all. I wasn't worried at first because I knew she was very stressed about the new environment. Any advice? About a week ago, she would poo every day(which is not normal for her). She would also get very excited and want to come out every morning. Is there seem to be a reason she isn't eating? Can being placed near a window effect that?

Hi there,

Relocation stress can occur even if you've had your dragon for years. Any change in environment (especially a large change) can trigger it. It's possible too that being near the window is stressing her out extra, depending on what she is seeing. Whatever it is, its probably all very new to her and will take her time to get used to her new environment.

If she's by a window, just make sure that direct sunlight can't shine in through the window into the tank.

Ok, thank you for your help! I'll give her some time to get used to it.

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?
