- Beardie name(s)
Hello, a couple weeks ago my bearded dragon was diagnosed with parasites and he is currently on two medications. He has been being medicated for about 2 weeks now and is still not eating and is not as active as he used to be. He just lays around in his cage with the occasional black beard (he does not black beard all day). Before I started his treatment he just kept on sleeping in his cave but now even though he is just laying around he is still on his warm side and under his basking bulb. Is it normal for bearded dragons to not want to eat at all when they are being treated for parasites? I’ve tried googling and read about some people giving their bearded dragons probiotics when taking antibiotics, is that something that I should try and if so what is the best one? I would appreciate any advice on anything else I should be doing for him during this time, he is my first bearded dragon so I’ve never had to go through this before and want to be sure that I’m doing everything right, thank you!
