Unhappy Please Help I Think My Beardie Is Ill :(

Im really getting worried now about my beardie,
We had him about a month ago and he isn't a very good eater at all,
He is 2 years old,
He has shead his skin last week and hasn't been eating at all since,
I have tried him with everything and it just wont tempt him,
I have sat with him 2nite and he has been a bit livelier only he has now got diarrhea, itis like water tho..
I saw him yesterday at his water bowl and he was actually drinking for a good few minuites aswell which isn't normal,
We have all the right temps etc and im at the point where i dont know what to do....
He is such a lovely chap and i really dont want anything to happen to him..
Can anyone offer any advice please

Hey flower,
dont worry im sure its a simple thing that can be easily sorted by some meds or something.

when was the last time your BD ate ANYTHING atall? if it is within the last 24 hours then i would advise you to starve your BD for 24 hours then try and reintroduce food slowly making sure you feed little and often. this should stave off the diarrhea.

I would take your BD to the vets though soon as you can cause it will soon get dehyrdated and its condition will begin to deteriorate.

do you keep any other BDs in with it? if so it woul dbe best to keep them apart if possible because if your BD has parasites or something it could pass onto the other one.
