Why is this happening? She has been lethargic and not eating.

What are your basking temps and how are you taking them? Stick ons are inaccurate -- and your uvb are you using a coil or a long tube fixture? These things I am asking are crucial to the dragons health and behavior
Right now it’s 81 degrees the bulb burnt out yesterday so I replaced it with a long uv tube not sure the watts I am going to by a new bulb today. Do you think that’s the problem?

Your dragon needs basking temps of 95-100 those are surface temps-- please get a digital probe thermometer- place the probe on the spot where she basks wait 10 minutes get temps-- this is how she will start her digestion - your uvb should be a 24" zoo med fixture w/ a 22" reptisun10.0 T 5 or a Arcadia pro T 5 w/ a 12% bulb this one pet smart has started carrying- these are good for tanks 40+ gallon you need this for her to be able to fight off illnesses and for her to be able to absorb the calcium she's getting

I got her new lighting. She isn’t eating not even crickets ( that is her favorite) but drinking water that was my concern the watery discharge in the tank that’s the picture I posted. She is very lethargic not her self at all. I am very concerned 😟.

What lighting did you get? I posted what you needed- she's drinking that's good-

It looks like she vomited up her water. It may have been because she drank too much and could be a one time thing but I would keep an eye on how much she drinks. How's her beard color? Her not eating could be because she didn't have a warm enough basking spot. Get your lights and temperatures correct and she should start wanting to eat. Another possibility, if she doesn't seem to get better is she could have aspirated some water and could have a respiratory infection.

Hello,

How is your girl doing?
Sometimes when they drink too much water too quickly they can throw it up.
As Karrie suggested, using either a digital probe or temp gun will help make
sure your temperatures are optimal. Be sure that she basks for a good portion
of the day so she can properly digest her food.
Let us know how she is doing. If this continues, you can definitely consider
getting a fecal done on her.
It looks like she is going to shed possibly?

Buffy snuggling with my partner!!!
So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
