I cant tell if it is bothering her since she isnt moving any limbs anymore. I dont think it was like that yesterday because im pretty sure I would have noticed it. I believe the blood test covered the kidney and anemia, which the vet said came out fine. The flavor that we got was strawberry for the yogurt. should i go ahead and give her some? if so how much

I would go ahead & give her some of the soy yogurt. Hopefully she will lick it willingly off her nose, give her as much as she will take.

Try with .1 cc at first, and work up to .3cc. No more than .8 cc daily. Someone correct me if I am wrong.. I am going on a 300 gram weight.

its 12:45...about 3 hours since stubble's lights have gone out. Normally she'd be sleeping 10 mins after lights out, but shes still up doing that repetative mouth thing. I feel so bad for her suffering :*-(

Well...our poor baby is getting worse, and my wife and I decided today that we're going to take her in to put her to sleep. We did everything we could, and thank you all for trying to help us get us through this.

I am so sorry, and I know how difficult of a decision that is to make.
I will keep you in my thoughts today.
Hugs

oh wow i understand completely how difficult and agonising that decision is to make but only you will know if your baby is suffering or not therefore its the right decision for her, not necessarily for you as no one wants to lose a very loved pet but for her it is and she will then be at peace, feel the comfort in that.
my thoughts go out to you on this day.

You are in my prayers. I am very sad it had to come to this, but it is better than her suffering through it. I commend you and your husbands courage. She is going to a better place where she can play and eat all day, and brag about her loving slaves who she misses more than anything.

Best of luck,

Sarah, Killian, and Blaze.

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about Stubbles. When I saw that picture of her with her mouth open like that, I knew it wasn't good, I suspect kidney failure. Did the vet give you any reasoning at all?

Thinking of you and assuring you that you did the right thing, she is no longer in pain. I know how hard that was to make that final decision. :(

Ya its been a day of tears for us :cry: The vet did ask if i would allow her to do an autopsy to see exactally what was wrong with her, and I gave her the permission because hopefully what she learns will help another beardie in the future. When I got there, she did take one last look at her, and noticed that 1/2 of her whole body felt harder than the other half. She will let me know what was wrong if she finds anything wrong.

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!
