This was sudden onset as of this morning. 10 month old bearded. Circling and loss of balance. Temperature and humidity fine. Has a uvb bulb less than 3 months old with no mesh between it and the enclosure. Everything was fine yesterday. She ate and pooped. I don’t know what to do!! I’m very scared and very upset. Can anyone help? There are no reptile vets near me

Sometimes it can be caused by an ear infection, has she been in the water lately ? Or might she have hit her head on a hard surface ?

What are you using for a uvb? Coil or long tube fixture?

UPDATE: She passed away. I am devastated and I don't understand. This was so fast.
I am so sorry- dragons hide their illness for as long as they can - so I am gonna throw this out there it could of been lack of calcium absorption from what you were describing- uvb is crucial- the 10.0 has certain placement screens will block 30% of the rays- but that is a guess on cause- he could of been sick when you got mirri - 10 months old is pretty young- again I am so sorry and yes it's devastating and a shock as well ❤️‍🩹 my heart goes out to you

The uvb bulb is inside the enclosure no screen blocking it. She got calcium dust on her dubia or salad but only once a day.

Thank you for the kind words. I’m absolutely heartbroken

Hello,

I am so sorry your girl passed so suddenly. :cry: The movement like that makes me wonder if
she had a stroke since you mentioned it came on so quickly.
I am sorry for your loss.

Hello,

It is the worst feeling I know. When it's sudden like that, it is usually something to that extent.
We are all here for you if you need anything. She was well loved & that's what counts.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
