Hi there, gorgeous my parteners dragon isn't eating and she's got pritty thin which isn't good! she has not eaten for about to days but she has just stopped shedding.


+ we had a power cut the other day and had to take the small viv to my mums till the electric was fixed so she might be still a bit draumertised but my dragon stumpy is fine and eating well but her eyes are bigger than her belly

Thank you SamandGem

i wouldnt worry too much if its only been two days,how has she gotten skinny in two days? it could be stress caused by the moving around. If she looses alot of weight, take it to a vets, it could be impaction.

what do u keep her on and what type of dragon r we on about??
wax worms are going to be the best foodstuff to fatten her up... but because they taste sweet, you could end up with a picky feeder. keep an eye on it and check your temps r ok... is she housed alone or with a companion???

if they r being housed together, i'd seperate them to feed as it is so common for competitive feeders. try get a fresh pooh sample to your vet to ck for parasitesany loose bedding should be removed for now unti u know what your dealing with... impactations are common in beardies, but they also go thru a fasting stage called brumination? muscle wastage is a sign of trouble... get an appt with a herp vet this is important as normall small animal vets don't always no what they r on about :?

Hi there um we got perscribed a drug 4 gorgeous and some fluid mix.

:( but unfortunatly gorgeous died sunday evening @ 6:50 R.I.P

We have just sent her of to have a autopsy carried out to see what the cause of death was, whether it mite of been what we were perscribed from the vets or an abnormality in her from birth or other effects.
at the mo we are awaiting the results.

will let you know at a later date when we have recieved the results

thanx

Hope Stumy's OK - but maybe if he also has the bacterial infection it has been caught in time and he'll get a course of antibiotics and all will be good for him. Fingers crossed here too/
