Hello,

Condolences, My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and Reptile Rescue.

In order to assist you I need to find out about husbandry to determine what could have happened.

Can you tell me about set up?

Substrate?

UVB light, linear tube or compact coil, strength, age of bulb and brand?

Basking light?

Diet Veggies/Prey?

Supplements?

Temps in Basking area, warm side and cool side?

How were temps measured?

Were stools and Urates normal?

I can use these questions to determine if something may have effected the Dragon, but only positive way to know would be a Necropsy.
