We gave him 3 lumber grasshoppers the one that is black and has the red stripe without thinking it could be poisonous!!! He hasn’t moved or ate anything in two days. He just lays there, we are scared he will die!! Help

Is your dragon an adult ? Although the lubber grasshopper has some toxicity I hope that your dragon will get through this. It would be good to get some activated charcoal or if he seems really ill get him to an emergency vet where they know how to handle this. If your dragon is smaller than 13-14 " then 3 large hoppers could also cause some impaction.

Yes, they are somewhat toxic indeed! As suggested by AHBD, if at all possible get some activated
charcoal into him as quickly as you can to help flush out his system right now. Be sure to get some
extra oral fluids into him, as well.
Let us know how he is doing.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
