Hello,

Are you still using the liquid calcium for him also? Are you getting the proper dose into him for his
weight? I can help with that, if you need. This could be a calcium issue, since that does cause a
lot of neurological problems.
Keep us posted on him.

I think he was around 48 grams. I don't exactly remember and they said to use 0.07 of the medicine. Im still giving it to him twice a day.

Hello,

How is your boy doing today?
Ok, that dose sounds conservative, depending on the strength of the calcium. How long did they
want him to take that, twice daily for?

For a month. He can get down from his basking spot, but I have yet to see him get back up. His legs don't work very well or at least one of them doesn't work very well. It has 0 muscle in it. He ate on his own yesterday I didn't have to use the tweezers he just wobbled over lol

Hello,

I hope he is doing better. You can try having him swim around in a shallow container of water. That can
help him regain leg strength, but be sure you are there with him because they can dip their heads under
water or drown quickly.

Hello,

That's great he seems to be getting some strength back in his leg, I hope so. That has to be really
frustrating for him not to be able to use his leg as he normally was doing. Keep us posted on his
progress!

Hello,

Well, he might be trying to slow down for the season, which is normal. I would do your best to keep
him out & basking right now, as much as possible so he can get better.

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
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience.
