Hey guys my Amber successfully laid her clutch of 19 total eggs!!! My questions are

I fell asleep with her light on and woke up at 3am to her still basking under her lights should she be ok or did I stress her out?

Another is that she is thankfully eating greens and crickets again (15-20 crickets) but she seems sluggish and slow is this due to her laying eggs and digging so much? An I mean slow like a dragon trying to ambush prey type of slow she is currently basking under her lights I'm just worried about her energy level.

I also dusted her bugs should I just allow her to eat as many as she wants or could I overfeed her? I wanna get her back to normal I'm just worried about her energy and calcium levels

It's normal for her to be tired, she's been through a lot. It may take her a few days to get back to normal energy levels.
As far as the light that shouldn't be a big deal, if she is sleepy she'll nap.
I would feed her a little more than normal for a week or so also, got to make sure she gets her calcium levels back up.
The last time Ruby laid she had 2 clutches in 5 or 6 weeks. She has some mbd from the person that had her before us. I hate to think how 2 clutches could have set her back it i hadn't been diligent on her calcium after the 1st clutch. I know every dragon is going to be different but beter safe than sorry 🙂

Definitely she has been basking all morning but just got down off her platforms and is on the cool side atm. I'll try feeding her crickets again in a little bit I just hope she has no more eggs to lay this was her clutch.

Hopefully I can keep her calcium levels up high what would be he best way? Just dust her bugs let her get under her UVB light and give her greens if she wants to eat them? She didn't exactly act enthusiastic about her bugs this morning but she did eat them slowly so I was extremely patient and hand fed her

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
