Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Thank you for your patience, there isn't always an exotic vet available.
You're through to Dr. Edele, a UK based vet. I'm reviewing your query and I will respond presently.
I have some questions to help me best advise you about your dragon.
What are the temperatures and humidity etc in her vivarium?
How long have you had her?
When did she last shed?
When did she last poop? What was it like?
Was her poop normal?
Is she receiving any supplementation?
How often is she bathed?
Thank you, ***** ***** she receiving the vitamins? Is she receiving calcium dust as well?
Perfect, her set up sounds really good. As she hasn't shed since you've had her and shes under 12 months old I would be suspicious that she is entering her shed. This can make them a little lethargic, restless (rubbing on branches etc) and some may go off food for a few days. We want to make sure that she is kept hydrated right now so you can bath her in warm water in the sink/bathtub with just enough water for her to walk around in and have a drink if she wants. You can add some dioralyte (human electrolytes from chemist) to her water to help replenish those electrolytes too. She can be bathed daily for up to 30 minutes once she isn't stressing (start with short baths and low water levels at first) which will help to maintain her hydration.
There are a few other things that it could be, if she hasn't eaten and becomes more lethargic or starts to show any other signs (swellings, diarrhoea, little blood spots around her gums/face etc) then you should take her to your vet at that time. I would not offer her any food for a few days and avoid handling or doing anything in her enclosure except for bathing and misting to minimize stressors from those. She can then be offered small amounts of something she really likes to eat at first to encourage her to feed. If after 5-7 days there has been no improvement or if she deteriorates at all then she should be taken to your vet. You should consider a hygrometer for her viv if you don't have one to monitor her humidity levels.
Aw, that's very cute name for her! No problem at all. I aim to respond to any direct queries within an hour so if you have any concerns over the next few days I should be able to respond to you. Have a lovely Sunday afternoon.
