Some questions:My baby beardie is exhaling really heard and breathing heavy what could that mean, I just looked over and he was doing this. Please I’m kind of freaking out, there are no 24 hour vets near me
He just took a bath but I watched him the whole time and he was only in there for a couple mins, his head never went under just a couple droplets on his headSome questions:
Did this occur after eating ?
Has he had a bath recently ?
How do you give him water ? (Spray bottle, eye dropper etc)
What is your tank humidity or the humidity of where you live ?
How often is the tank cleaned ?
Is there anything new in his tank that may have stressed him out ?
My guess is he may have something stuck in his throat. You can use a credit card/id or similar to prop open his mouth gently and look with a flashlight. This is best done with 2 - 3 people to hold the beardie still and use tweezers to remove the blockage.
If he’s aspirated anything, it’s likely he could have an infection and needs to see a vet. He could also get a respiratory infection from the tank temperatures not being adequate and the tank not being clean/too humid.
Please post updates ! And take to a vet asap !
