Many know my baby dragon suzuki died despite many vet attempts. I got Yoshi soon after (tank was just to empty). Set up is as it should with basking at 105, cool at 86, reptisun 10. Custom built enclosure with tile on floor. Heres the issue. Yoshi is VERY active, has since I got her about 3 weeks ago. Last night she curled up behind her plastic plant as always. All was normal. Turned lights on at same time this morning, she climbed on her tree under her basking light and her eyes are half open, beard is half black, no stress marks. She is a red tiger lily and her tail is white as shes getting ready to go through her second shed. She will not eat nor stand nor move. She is 9 inches long and a baby. I'm absolutely baffled here. She has pooped 2 times this morning which is not normal for her and not little ones either. Second one had very little urate and was a tad runny. She pooped 2 times in an hour I might add.

I put her in a warm bath with just enough water to cover her toes. She laid in it and was gapping. My vet is closed for the thanksgiving holiday and the ER vet does not do beardies. Any advice? She didnt' fall because she was on the tile behind her plant when I shut the lights off, and was still there when I turned lights on this morning.

she had fecal done when I got her. Like I said, all was perfect until this morning. She just lifted her tail like she was going to poop again then started thrashing her head back and forth with mouth wide open like she was choking, she hasn't eaten anything today, not since 4pm yesterday.

oh dear, im not really sure what to say, but it doesnt sound good, you could try PMing a mod,
But i think the best thing to do would be vets, i know you said its shut...
Is she gasping for air?

My vet was called by ER hospital, met me there. Yoshi passed away, they couldn't save her. I am in shock and tears. She was fine. I've asked for a necropsy to be performed and they are going to send her body to find out why she died. I just can't believe she's gone, and have to explain it to my kids as they are on their way home from school. This is not how i wanted to spend thanksgiving :(

Thats the only thing I can think Lively. She has 2 trees and jumps tree to tree. Only thing I can figure is she fell while jumping?? I mean, how can you go from totally active and healthy to gone? The necropsy will show any head trauma when its done.. I just have to know what happened. My children are upset as I am. She was sooo pretty and sweet. She was a special girl and I just dont know what to think, I just still can't believe she's gone.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
