Just got home my bulb went out while at work. No movement

Customer Question

Just got home my bulb went out while at work. No movement eyes opened twice. Shallow breathing. No signs of any energy. Is it dying?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Veterinarian will know how to help the reptile. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the reptile?
Customer: Not really for sure. I'm not the pet kind of parent my wife is but she's at work. Just trying to prevent it dying. I have two kids one six one five just trying to prevent this for them.

Please be cautious in feeding Kale it binds calcium and can cause issues if given as a staple food.
