So I have a beardie that's about a year old just a few days ago I went back to feeding her mealworm because I was told they were high on fat.maybe 2days later she not moving around much she's dragging her back legs and laying on her belly I was told it can be impaction so I've been trying to
To give her warm baths and rub belly rubs I was also recommended to give her prune juice and applesauce and neither of the two works because she won't except it she spits it out and I've also been trying to give her water and she doesn't really drink it when she's in the bath so does anybody has any tips to make beardies use the bathroom?

Get some canned pumpkin plain add a drop or two of olive oil and honey --- see if she will eat it -- if not make a slurry out of it w/ some water and feed off a spoon or syringe --- see how that goes -- keep feeding it till she poops -- she does need to stay hydrated to keep things moving - if feeding by syringe feed real slow so she does not aspirate --- let her swallow what you put in

Okay so she finally had a BM which is good but still isn't moving around as much is that normal and what time of food I should give her for I guess this "healing stage"?
