My beardie ate half an Aleve


New member
My one year old beardie is not quite a pound yet. Tonight, about two hours ago, he pounced on and bit an Aleve pill, swallowing half of it before I could stop him.
All the vets were closed already. I used this forum and found out I could give him an eighth of a tsp of an activated charcoal suspension. I did. I also got cilantro, parsley etc. for a detox slurry. When can I give that to him? Should I keep him warm or cool? How many times should I dose him with activated charcoal?
So far he's acting normal.

Sorry I missed this thread!
How is your boy?
As far as activated charcoal, you can give him 1-2 doses, daily with water.
I'm glad to hear you went ahead & made a detox slurry for him, that should really help to draw out
anything in his system. For now, keep him warmer overnight, as it will help his body's metabolism
so the detoxification effect can work more effectively. Anything can pass through him better if he
isn't as slown down.
Let us know how he is doing.

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
