Hi Rocky! Good to see your eye open. Keep fighting, because you will have a great life.. Just pull through this!!

I CANNOT BELIEVE THEY MADE YOU PAY $100 FOR HIM! They should have just turned him over to be saved. People make me sick!

Ugg I have been waiting all day to hear something and I didn't get any notices again. Weird... Any way I also second what rowen said. We should do whatever we can to make these people aware of what they did and make animal services provide the same support they would for any other animal. Tas do you have the address still? Keep all the info and vet info on record. Keep a journal if you can.

As for the daily fluids did you ask if you could do this yourself? It's really easy. I would assume that means you would go back tomorrow right? Maybe a few persuasive phone calls to the vet to ask for some support in this would be helpful. I would be happy to call ;) Even if they just give you instructions and send you home with what you need for 5 days. He has shown improvement and I think thats a wonderful sign! I am also going to post a link on my website and facebook to see if we can drum up some more donations! But for now I definitely have another $10. Go Rocky!

You have been so brave ever since the beginning of this thing and we all applaud you and thank you so much for being there!

Once you do it once you will be okay with it. Could save $$'s
 
AFTER READING ALL OF THE TEXT MESSAGES AND PHONE CALLS MY TEENAGER HAS RECEIVED FROM ALL OF YOU. LET'S GET SOMETHING VERY VERY CLEAR. I HAVE CONTACTED OUR LOCAL SHERIFFS DEPT. AND IF ANY OF YOU CONTACT MY MINOR CHILD AGAIN IT WILL BE CONSIDERED HARASSSAMENT OF A MINOR AND YOU WILL BE PROSECUTED TO THE FULL EXTENDT OF THE LAW. ARE YOU ALL REALLY THAT STUPID? OR DO YOU JUST HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO. THERE IS NO NEED TO ANSWER TO 21 PAGES OF ABSOLUTELY OBSURD POSTS, BUT I WILL COMMENT ON JUST ONE TO LET YOU KNOW HOW STUPID YOU ALL ARE. SOME "VET" STATES THAT "ZEEK" YES THAT IS HIS NAME. WAS NOT FED FOR 4 MONTHS? ARE YOU JOKING?? AND THEN THE NEXT POST SAYS THAT THE LADY WHO PICKED HIM UP FROM ME SAID HE POOPED AND SHE WAS TAKING THAT TO THE VET. NOW IT DOESN'T TAKE A GENIUS TO FIGURE OUT IF AN ANIMAL HAS NOT BEEN FED OR WATERED FOR 4 MONTHS THAT THEY WOULD NOT POOP. "ZEEK IS JUST NOW OPENING HIS MOUTH TO TAKE FOOD FROM A SYRINGE"? HOW WAS IT POSSIBLE THAT THAT VERY MORNING HE WAS ABLE TO OPEN HIS MOUTH ENOUGH
TO EAT AN ENTIRE PINKY MOUSE? THE WOMAN AND HER 2 DAUGHTERS THAT CAME TO PICK ZEEK UP REFUSED THE PINKY MICE WE HAD IN THE FREEZER FOR ZEEK. THEY INFORMED ME THAT THEY ONLY FEED THEIR BEARDED DRAGONS COCKROACHES. READ ANY BOOK OR TALK TO ANY VET OR PET STORE AND THEY WILL TELL YOU AS I TOLD THE 3 WOMEN THAT CAME TO MY HOME, THAT BEARDIES NEED MORE THAN JUST COCK ROACHES. DID ANY OF YOU WONDER WHY THE WOMEN TOOK NO PICTURES OF ZEEK IN HIS HOME BEFORE THEY PURCHASED HIM. I WILL TELL YOU WHY. ZEEK HAD A FULL DISH OF WATER AND THERE WAS POOP IN THE SAND FROM THE DAY BEFORE THEY ARRIVED. MY TEENAGER IS IN TEARS. WHAT YOU HAVE ALL DONE IS A HORRIBLE THING TO DO TO ANY CHILD BASED ON WHAT SOME WHACO TRIED TO GET YOU ALL TO BELIEVE. YOU ALL HAVE CHOICES TO MAKE. CAN YOU LIVE WITH THE THINGS YOU HAVE SAID AND THREATENED TO DO TO A CHILD.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE COMMENTED THAT YOU DID NOT GET A RESPONSE WHEN YOU TEXT MESSAGED OR E-MAILED MY TEENAGER. LET ME MAKE IT CLEAR THAT I AM VERY PROTECTIVE OF MY CHILDREN AND I WOULD NOT ALLOW A RETURN PHONE CALL TO PEOPLE UNLESS I SPOKE TO THEM. I UNFORTUNATELY WAS NOT AWARE THAT WHEN THE ADD WAS POSTED IT INCLUDED MY CHILDS CELL PHONE NUMBER AND NOT MINE. AND THE B.S. ABOUT HIS 2ND EYE HAVING SOMETHING WRONG WITH IT IS JUST THAT, B.S. ZEEK DID HAVE AN EYE INFECTIONS APPROXIMATELY 5 YEARS AGO, AS I EXPLAINED TO THE LIARS THAT PURCHASED ZEEK. 5 YEARS IS LONG ENOUGH AGO THAT I DO NOT REMEMBER EXACTLY WHAT THE VET TOLD US AT THE TIME ZEEK HAD. WE WERE GIVEN MEDICATION AND DROPS TO TRY TO SAVE ZEEKS EYE, BUT WERE UNSUCCESSFUL. THAT WAS HEARTBREAKING FOR MY CHILD WHO WAS NOT EVEN CLOSE TO BEING A TEENAGER THAN, BUT A YOUNG CHILD. OBVIOUSLY AFTER 5 YEARS THERE WOLD JUST BE AN EMPTY HOLE THAT ZEEKS EYE LID COVERED TO KEEP ANYTHING OUT.
WOW MIRACULASLY IN LESS THAN 48 HOURS THESE LIARS WERE ABLE TO SEE ZEEKS STOMACH AND THEY COULDN'T BEFORE? JUST BECAUSE ZEEK DID NOT GO EVERYWHERE WITH US, AS THE LIARS STATED TO ME THAT THEIRS DO, DOES NOT MAKE US INHUMANE. HE IS A REPTILE NOT A DOG. DOES THAT MAKE US INHUMANE THAT OUR 8 1/2' RED TAIL BOA DOESN'T GO EVERYWHERE WITH US?
THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH HORRIBLE WORDS THAT I WOULD FEEL COMFORTABLE SAYING TO YOU ALL. I SINCERELY HOPE THE NEXT POSTS WILL BE APOLOGIZING TO MY CHILD FOR WHAT YOU HAVE ALL SAID. AND MAYBE NEXT TIME INSTEAD OF SITTING ON YOUR ASSES IN FRONT OF A COMPUTER MAKING A JUDGEMENT ABOUT SOMETHING THAT YOU CANNOT TRULY SEE, THAT YOU WILL THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK.

yes there was water but less than an hour after he was on an IV he was able to lift his head and actually eat something. i wanted to belive that you were just misinformed. i cant belive you could look at him everyday and say he was healthy his ribs are sticking out and the fat pads behind his eyes are sunken in when you pull the skin up at his nape is stayed there meening he was severaly dehydrated. would you like my vet to call you? he will confirm that he was not cared for properly 2 days of being feed properly 6 times a day and hes put on 10 grams. have you ever see a healthy bearded dragon they dont lay there limp.

Apologise? How about you apologise for the blatent lack of proper care and abuse this reptile endured whilst in your home. Give me a break, the pictures of this poor creature is heartbreaking and beyond words. You are one of the most ignorant human beings I've ever come across and whilst I never placed a phone call to your household, I applaud Tastiger who rescued ROCKY (IS HIS NAME) from your hands.

Please do me a favour and find your way off these boards. You should never be allowed to own another animal/reptile, you are an abuser and the pictures prove it. If you didn't know how to provide a proper life for this dragon you should have found someone who did! If I am banned for speaking my mind so be it, however it feels damn good!

You make me sick and I refuse to coddle someone like you, the state this dragon is in was not a result of being "misinformed", I don't care what anyone says.

That is all

Why the need to type in all caps?
If that is really Rocky's former owner I am very confused on how they believed he was healthy besides an eye infection it doesn't take a genius to look at those pictures and no hes in horrible condition. Eye infection shouldn't make him that skinny should it?? Even if you know nothing about bearded dragons you can still tell he's been starved and dehydrated. And yes they do nee dmore then cockroaches such as veggies and calcium dust, was that provided for him? I'm not trying to attack you, maybe you were misinformed about the care for them??? Anyways theres nothing you can do now for rocky, just learn from the mistake and maybe become more informed about your sons next pet?
The only complaint and annoyance I do have is that you charged 100 dollars for a sick pet when his medical bills are huge, but that is in the past. Lets just all wish Rocky the best recovery possible.
lol cant stop but laugh at the last line tho....."THAT YOU WILL THINK BEFORE YOU SPEAK"

I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
