My bearded hasn't gone to the bathroom in about 4 to 5 days.

Customer Question

My bearded hasn't gone to the bathroom in about 4 to 5 days. She was carrying eggs, reassured them and got a fluid infection. Gave her 5 antibiotic shots per vet, and she hasn't gone to the bathroom since. She's eating but not going? Any help?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. There are all sorts of infestations the reptile can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. What is the reptile's name?
Customer: Layla
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Layla?
Customer: No, that's about it. She's a rescue dragon, she was fine until she starting producing eggs, then she reads or bed them and is acting different. She's alert, runs around the house but hasn't used the restroom yet.
