My 2 month old beardie isn't eating, well I am extremely careful when I have to syringe feed her. Well I don't know if she came this way or if I did it 😭 but her bottom jaw Is broken on the left side. I am new at this, I can't even find a vet close to look at her and even if I do I can't afford it. I have had her a month. She doesn't seem to be in pain and she's still moving and basking and even opening her mouth but just won't eat.

Lets check your lighting --- this is what you should be using --- a solid bright white basking bulb that keeps temps 105-110 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer --- next a long tube fixture like a 24" Zoo Med w/ a Repistun 10.0 T 5 bulb --- this would be for a 40+ gallon tank - if its not then get the 24" fixture but use the 5.0 bulb that comes w/ the fixture -- or this one a Arcadia Pro T 5 w/ a 12% bulb - please tell me what you have for a UVB please NO coils --- your baby needs all this to be correct -- I am going to flag your post to our vet tech med

You want a actual surface basking temp- stickons are inaccurate- the probe needs to go on the spot where she basks wait 10 min or so then get the temp- the temp your getting is a ambient temp you need surface temps- the uvb is a health hazzard please replace it as soon as you can- the coils are inadequate and your dragon needs that uvb to help heal the jaw and keep her from getting mbd or some other illness- visit this website www.pangeareptiles.com and look at the uvb's I posted- one will be under fixtures and the other under uvb lights you will find the Arcadia under that one the zoo med under fixtures

Yep those are stickons- please get a digital probe thermometers - 2 of them look at the pet store zoo med digital probe thermometer- one for the basking side and to use on the decor piece and one for your cool side of the tank-- you want 3 temps in your tank surface basking temps--105-110 middle of the tank 90's and cool side 80's
