help! advice needed
 
my female beardie age 1 1/2 layed her eggs 16 days ago she has been fine till now, she isnt eating or drinking and all she does is sleep day and night, she has been like this for about a week, should i be worried or is she just in brumation?

can anyone help

thanks

becca

clob91 19-08-2009 04:16 PM

well isnt brumation induced by temps that are too low or something?

what are your temps, are they right? might not be warm enough for her. :jump:

becca26 19-08-2009 04:20 PM

hi

temps are fine i keep an eye on them eveyday, i have a male in the same tank and hes ok he not sleepy like she is, im probly worrying for nuffing but its not like her.

becca26 19-08-2009 05:54 PM

some good news she has taken some water, but the bad news is its coming out of the other end in seconds, what to do?:help:

AuntyLizard 19-08-2009 05:59 PM

Get her to a vet ASAP. Where her eggs fertile? she could have retained one.

becca26 19-08-2009 06:10 PM

omg realy, it was her first clutch of eggs so i dont know much about them i have someone looking after them, all i know is that we still have all 21, none have gone off yet.

redshazzy 19-08-2009 06:16 PM

i really would get her to the vets asap.
make sure it is a reptile vet .
keep us updated

becca26 19-08-2009 06:18 PM

ok thanks guys i will

AuntyLizard 19-08-2009 06:44 PM

Ok well even if they are fertile she could still retain. I would get her to your local reptile vet ASAP as she definately needs looking at.

becca26 19-08-2009 06:49 PM

liz i cant get her in tonight, no one will see her till tomorrow morning, i found a rep vets in harold wood, going first thing?

im so worried that my little izzy whizz is ill :cry:

matt1969 19-08-2009 06:55 PM

Just a thought! Give her a warm bath (NOT HOT), this sometimes might get her system working to pass any eggs still inside! But still take to vets if this does something or not! :gasp:

becca26 19-08-2009 07:23 PM

thanks matt,

i have been bathing her on and off for a couple of days, but i guess theres still a possability that she might pass it,

any suggestion is welcome :D

you guys are the best :notworthy:

matt1969 19-08-2009 07:34 PM

Good luck with tomorrow! Hope she is ok!:2thumb:

becca26 19-08-2009 07:52 PM

thanks matt,

oh hope its not to usless now but i have a question?

would i be able to feel the egg/s?

i have just noticed a little bit of pinky stuff come out with the water, its a very small amount, its not normal : (

gizmossister 19-08-2009 08:06 PM

My chuckwalla recently laid eggs about a week and a half ago and is still going through the same process. taking her to the vets is a gd idea to check shes not egg bound or retaining any more eggs, sometimes u can feel them but in most cases only when there are alot of eggs left as they are very soft when inside her.
I gave mine a 50:50 water:calcium/vit mix as she will have drained herself laying all the eggs, she will be very tired and sleep alot for the first week or so a full 48hrs after laying, mine has only just started to purk up and u can feed her a veggie blend mix or babyfood in a seringe i just blended her usually veggies to a paste with some extra water and calcium, she probably wont eat by herself for a while i also feed mine wax worms and meal worms which i cut the heads off and put in her mouth and she tends to give them a bit of a chew and swallows if she wants them. due to ur female being so week she wont eat on her own and its usually a gd idea to separate from the male for the first week and then reintroduce which is what i did and she is perking up now and i have seen signs of her eating little bits on her own now my seringe feeding has brought her strength back up.

The vet might tell u to do a similar thing along with any pet shops u may ask, its not unusual to not eat but the pink discharge u r seeing is a bit worrying but could be due to her not eating for so long and consuming her own body fat but check with the vets anyway and take a sample of faeces if possible because they might ask for one.

Hope she is as lucky as mine and gets better this mainly happens after a very first clutch of eggs and what u have been doing so far is brilliant but u need to get her eating again even if u have to help her.

Gdluck if u want to know anything else i have used dnt hesitate to ask.

jools 19-08-2009 08:10 PM

Take whatever "sample" of this you can with you to vets. This could also POSSIBLY be blood-stained mucus from perhaps parasites. The stress of laying may have caused any previously small parasite load to multiply. Good luck - hope she's ok

If you can't get a sample the vet can do a cloacal wash if he feels it is necessary

Anna89 20-08-2009 02:28 PM

thanks liz your a star,

hope your back gets better before the weekend

becca26 20-08-2009 05:52 PM

thanks for the support guys,

i have spoken to the vet she said that izzy's blood has come back with no infection and she had an x-ray and there are no eggs, thay are going to give anabolic steroids, and antibiotics just in case.

but she has got something wrong with her kidneys there not working properly im hoping that its just that she has had no fluid for so long, fingers crossed i will be bringing her home tomorrow.

i dont think its a good idea to let her breed again, any thoughts ?

i dont want to give my male up but if its the best thing to do for izzy then i will have to?

becca26 21-08-2009 07:17 PM

shes home and shes ok turns out she is in brumation :blush:
well atleast she is ok better to be safe than sorry,
