Can you tell me what type of UVB light you are using? How old is it? Strength?
Was the Vet you had seen a Reptile Specialist?
Did they do blood work?
What type of supplements are you using?
What type of substrate are you using?
The first thing is I feel this Dragon needs to see an experienced Herp Vet as she is showing some mixed signs of MBD and other medical issues. The She does not cause impactions in Dragons, but meal worms as well as sand will. You can read more about sand impaction here: Sand as a substrate:
http://www.beardeddragon.org/articles/impaction/?page=3 Meal worms are high in chitin which is the outer shell and can also casue impaction.
At this point we are going to continue with the warm soaks of 50/50 warm water and plan Pedialyte. Soak for 30 mins and massage the abdomen while in the soak. This hopefully will help to get some stool to pass. I would like you try try and get teh Dragon to eat some meat flavored baby food stage 1 withsome calcium powder in it.
You mention that you are quarantining the Dragon. It should never be housed with another Dragon. They are solitary and the only time we bring them together is when we breed and take the female to the male's tank and remove after breeding.
I would like to see some blood work done as well as a Fecal done. I suspect there is more going on than what the Vet has found. The temps are correct and the veggie diet is good, but there is something else going on that needs to be addressed by a specialist hands on. I cannot quite pinpoint it because I cannot see the Dragon. Please supply a State and I will locate a Specialist that can properly diagnose the Dragon. I am hoping the blood work and the fecal will reveal something. Joan
This is the link for the Herp Vets in AL: http://www.anapsid.org/vets/alabama.html You may have to travel a bit, but this Dragon needs to be see by someone who knows about Dragons and their illnesses. I wish I could give you a solution for at home, but there is something there that needs to be addressed with blood and a fecal. Joan
