Customer Question
My daughter checked her...

My daughter checked her bearded dragon. The Dragon is not moving her limbs. We recently moved her to a larger tank and have been struggling to keep it as warm as the smaller tank. My daughter so far has moved her back into the smaller tank to see if she can warm up.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. Could be a lot of things that cause lethargy. The Expert will know how to help the dragon. What is the dragon's name and age?

Her name is***** is about six months old, I think.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Cat?

Nothing I can think of.

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

I couldn't be more satisfied! This is the site I will always come to when I need a second opinion.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
