My Simi passed away yesterday

I posted this last summer how my Simi was coughing or sneezing. He was prescribed antibiotics. He seemed to perk up for the most part but never really seemed 100%. We took him in again last Tuesday. They drew blood and found his white cell count was elevated extremely. We are heartbroken once again since we lost Atlas our rescue beardie. I totally feel like we failed the poor thing.

So sorry to hear about Simi! So hard to lose a pet! Sounds like you did a lot to help these little guys. In humans, a high white cell count sounds like an infection..maybe the same for reptiles? I'm sorry that the vet wasn't able to save Simi!

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
