Hello.
I am speaking on behalf of my sister.
The bearded dragon, Perky, is roughly a year and five months old and her weight is 440 kg.
It was believed that Perky was in her brumation stage. She has been in this stage for seven days. She hasn't moved since the start. Her eyes have been puffy for three days. Two days ago, a little bit of blood came from her nose. Today, when my sister was giving her water there was blood coming from her mouth. Blood also came from her eyes as well. We looked and studied her body a bit further and noticed that her nails had turned red as well The body temperature was normal.
Previously, in early September, she had yellow fungi, and we were able to take her to the closest clinic that would take lizards. She was treated and was told that she was healthy. She stopped taking her medicine at the beginning of this month.
We are not sure what to do now.
We have attempted to call vets around our area and outside our area. The clinics either couldn't take her because they don't have a reptile specialist, the doctor doesn't take emergencies, the doctor isn't in, or they were booked—the whole family made calls to clinics in an attempt to get her looked at today. This is sort of a last resort for us. Any information would be helpful and valued. Thank you.

Our vet tech is on at night I am flagging the post to her --- in the mean time please go over your UVB your using and your surface basking temps and how your getting them? Please call the last clinic that looked at her and have them email you copies of what was done and medication she has been on and how much given then post them on here --- the blood coming from the mouth and eyes is terrible---- I am posting a website for you to find a reptile vet in your area -- I would look for a place that takes emergencies for reptiles
www.arav.org please type in a city closest to you if your in a small area

Hello, can you post a few pics ? I've never seen or heard of a live dragon in that condition. If this is really happening it would usually be in a dragon that has died.

I'm sorry that this is happening to Percy, something is very wrong that I can't figure out but the bugged out eyes can indicate heart or renal problems. Tracie [ Drache613 ] will be on later and might have some input but Percy doesn't look good. I hope this is something that she can get through but it doesn't look good.

Do you have pics of the yellow fungus when they suspected it ? And ask your sis what type of meds. Percy was given. Was it Itraconazole or Voraconazole ?

I.. uhh.. um. convinced my sister to move her. Well, Perky is in another world.

O.K., I'm so sorry . That's what I suspected and I'm really sad for you, your sister and for Percy. I'm sure that your sis is grieving now but when she is up to it, please do find out what meds. Percy was given for yellow fungus.
But again, I'm really sorry and my condolences go out to both of you. :(

I just remembered that Perky was also treated for parasites.
Here's the list of medicines:
Baytril LA 0.1ml once a day for 10 days
Deworming (Pyrantel) 1 dose then 2nd dose after 14 days.
Albon oral 0.1cc once a day for 10 days.

Aw, you're welcome. I wish that it had been a good outcome for Perky.
Thanks for posting the list of meds. It's possible that being on a lot of things in a short time could have affected the kidneys. If you find out that Perky was also on the antifungal meds. post that as well. Hang in there, I'm sure that you + your sis tried your best to help Perky.
