Shedding before Brumation?

Hi,

Our beardie has been slowing down (we live in Florida) and we took her to the vet. She took an x-ray and fecal recently, thought we may get another. The vet believes she's entering Brumation.

She has some bits of her skin that look ready to shed soon though, should I stop her from entering brumation till it's done?

Thank you!

Brumation can be simulated to in correct lighting - and surface basking temps- lets go over the UVB your using and your temps in the tank -- that way we can say for sure its brumation coming on - No coils for a UVB please and surface basking temps need to be taken w/a digital probe thermometer- are you using any colored bulbs in the tank?

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?
