I put her in a warm bath because I heard it helps them hydrate and she started drinking the water on her own, had her face in the water and everything. If I can find a picture I’ll show, it was very surprising. I’ll try some honey and water with a syringe to get her used to it and see if I can get her to take blended/Puréed veggies
Scrambled eggs - not a good idea , too much protein for her , will likely overwhelm her kidneys.
Is a fallacy that soaking a dragon in a bath will hydrate it....
> they do not absorb water through the skin ( arid zone dwellers - skin is impervious to moisture )
> they will not take water in by capillary action via their vent either - that's a nonsense myth .
Will only hydrate them if they actually drink while in the bath. Only way a dragon can get moisture on board is via it's mouth.
BE VERY CAREFUL administering water by mouth by syringe - can very easily cause the dragon to aspirate water into it's lungs ===> VERY BAD !
Best given in very moist IC food replacements in a slurry or a paste form.
