i have a 7-8 month old rankin's dragon that i believe is trying to brumate. he hasn't eaten anything in a few weeks. he's laying in one spot, half sleeping most of the day. i've given him a warm electrolyte bath which seemed to perk him back up for a day, but still no eating, and hes back to sleeping in his hide today. im very very worried about him going this long without eating as he doesn't have adequate weight to lose. i've tried contacting the exotic vet in my area several times to which they just say bring him in for an appointment but are disregarding my question of if i should be waking him up during this time or if i should just let him do his thing-im not trying to stress him out or mess with his rhythm. my temps are all correct, i'm monitoring them daily, and my UVB bulb is only from september so it should still be perfectly fine. please let me know any advice/if i should be trying to keep him awake & basking.
