Hi all,

around 3 weeks ago my beardie was wormed and treated for yeast infection. while he was being treated i was giving him half a mil a day of avipro,( the vet said it was a good idea when i suggested it). i think the treatment has thrown him. he does not eat very much any more, if i am lucky he might have a couple of items a day. he also might spend about an hour awake then he will curl up somewhere to sleep. I am still giving him the avipro but i have started to add critical care to it aswell now.
his temps are around 105 basking 80s cold 90s warm. he got a new 12% d3 arcadia uv on tuesday, i was hoping that might perk him up.

i know it can take them a while to recover from things.
i was just wondering if i am doing anything wrong or if there is anything i should be doing.

any advice would be great
thanks for reading.

What I used to get my female eating again after brumation was wax worms rolled in manuka honey as suggested by Sal.

Its a natural antibacterial also and will also help to rebalance her gut bacteria.

Perked her up fairly fast

This.
The wormer will have unbalanced the healthy bacteria in their stomach which is why there is reduced appetite :)

I gave him another 5 locusts this morning with manuka honey on it. He then a bit later had 10 locusts, that a bit of an improvement, he won't touch or look at a cricket yet, only locusts.
His appetite seems to of improved a bit, but he still wants to sleep lots. He will be up, alert and active for a couple of hours then he just curls up and sleeps, for a juvenile I wasn't expecting him to be lazy just yet, or could it be where he still is not 100% from the worming.
