Have Reptile Questions? Ask a Reptile Vet for Answers ASAP
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.
Can you tell me if he did an Ultrasound or an Xray was done?
Did the Vet prescribe any medication?
She is an Old girl and life span is about 10-12 years for a Dragon. At this age with what you described I worry about a Heart issue or a splentic mass. These are common issues we see in an older Dragon. The Blood work is good to have as well as a Fecal, but the heart and organs are a big concern. I would make sure she is warm enough with the temps at 105*-110*F, make sure the UVB bulb is a Reptisun 10.0 and newer than 6 months. The UVB and temps are very important fr the immune system and health. I am going to suggest adding some Royal Jelly which can be purchased at a health food store or Walmart in the Vitamin section. Open the capsule and add some to the baby food. Royal Jelly is a high potency supplement that helps increase the appetite. It is what is fed to a queen bee and has been found to help with Appetite in ill Dragons. I would also do a soak in a 50/50 Pedialyte soak to help with dehydration. Dragons can absorb fluids through the vent area. The soak should be warmed and shallow, so you can support the Dragon in the soak. Hopefully the Bee Pollen and the soak will help give some energy. As I said I am concerned about the heart and spleen, so if she does not perk up I would ask the Vet about an Ultrasound to check the organs.
Please let me know if you have any questions. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to Rate my service 5 stars.
