My bearded dragon keeps gagging ? Maybe. . Idk. It’s weird. He looks like she’s choking… he doesn’t make any noise doing it.. he just looks like he’s trying to push something out of his throat. It has me scared. He seems fine. But he’s been doing it for for some days / weeks.

It kinda sounds like your beardie could possibly have a respiratory infection or problem or maybe they might be choking on a big piece of food are you feeding him insects the size of the space between his eyes?

Yes his crickets are no bigger than the space between his eyes. If not smaller. . I was thinking a respiratory infection myself. I just wanna know he’s okay! Looks like I’ll have to try an get him to a vet.

Yes his long light is a T 8 & I use all kinds of lights really. He has 3 on his cage RN.

His cage also doesn’t always look like that. Normally there’s a water bowl in the back right corner & hanging plants for him to climb. Ect. I’m in the middle of cleaning it.

The T 8 is not strong enough to go thru screen please unobstructed it - it needs to be 6-8 inches directly above the basking decor

If I put it inside he goes on it … like literally climbs up to the light & will lay on it. I don’t want him to burn himself. It’s 100 on one side. 85ish on the other & somewhere in between in the middle.

I’m going to take him to the vet hopefully be4 the week is over. Nothing else he does seams on normal other than the like gagging thing and he’s not gagging he doesn’t make any noise he just looks to me like he’s choking.

Please get your surface basking temps up to 105-110- please post a video of him doing the gagging thing and your UVB needs to be unobstructed -- hes not getting enough UVB w/ it sitting on top of the screen-

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
