We feed her crickets dusted with fluckers calcium with d3 phosphorus free she also has collard greens summer squash carrots occasionally and endive dusted with calcium she has reptile carpet for her substrate and the cool side of her viv is around 80-84 and her basking side is around 105-110 she has a 10.0 uvb reptisun light, she is in a 20 gallon tank we have been giving her daily baths to help with the impaction and she also had a bowel movement before she got turned over on her back
yes she still seemed impacted, and yes she gets the calcium everyday. but she is not moving at all right now she is kind of stiff with her eyes closed and gasping for air at times, there are no veterinary clinics close to me and I'm afraid of her dying. her tummy is kind of hard and she's kind of biting her tongue some
ok, we did do a bath day before yesterday with the pedialyte and warm water and that seemed to help her some, the problem I'm having is where she was on her back now she's having a hard time breathing and she is not being responsive at all just opening her mouth every once in awhile and swallowing from time to time but no movement at all and eyes fully closed, and half open at some points. we tried soaking her and giving her a tiny amount of karo syrup in case her blood sugar was low from all the activity but I'm honestly scared she is dying. we live in bristol tn and the closest vet is 2 hours away that could see her I'm afraid she won't make the trip.
ok i called the telephone number and no one answered and i called the emergency number and they said I had the wrong number?
Oh no. Let me look some more. OK - this is supposed to be her pager: Tel:(NNN) NNN-NNNNemergency pager
the page number doesn't work, I don't see anyone closer than 2 hours.
Thank you for all your help, we found a local vet who has a reptile vet in the morning, hopefully she makes it until then. Thank you for all your help
she passed away around midnight
Thank you very much, yeah we had gotten really attached to her, but she had problems from day one. It is better that she is no longer suffering. we are going to try to rescue a dragon, try to give a dragon that has had it rough a good life. Its the least we can do in memory of her. Thank you for all of your advice it is very much appreciated.
