Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 5 months ago.

Brumation typically ends once winter is over. It would be very uncommon for a dragon to enter brumation during the spring. A few steps to take:

Touch the eyelid gently with your finger. Does the eye retract? Your companion pull away?
Flip your companion over onto his back. Does he move or right himself?

If not, your companion has most likely passed and burial proceedings can take place.
