Customer Question
My Beardie climbed into...

My Beardie climbed into a wired basket where the space was not big enough for him

Veterinarian's Assistant: What sort of animal are we talking about?

Bearded dragon

Veterinarian's Assistant: OK. I'll do all I can to help. What is the matter with the dragon?

He put his head through an area that was too small to fit his whole body he didn't understand so although I was trying to pull him out he kept pushing his body. I eventually got him to move his head out but I'm concerned. He doesn't have any stress marks, is eating fine and doesn't mind being held but he is less adventurous and look slower to walk or climb

Veterinarian's Assistant: Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?

No wounds his neck and upper organs were squeezed in this space im concerned about internal injuries or hurt legs or arms

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dragon?

Oh...i thought i could just chat with you is this a fee service

I thought this was a general service for all animals. I have a bearded dragon, not a dog.

How much is one question?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
This whole experience was misleading. I paid for a monthly membership which I thought would cover the cost.
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
I think I will cancel my membership and go with my gut.
Reptile Expert: Joan, Veterinary Technician replied 4 months ago

I will send it into customer service.

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.

Alice H.Jacksonville, Fl.

Wonderful service, prompt, efficient, and accurate. Couldn't have asked for more. I cannot thank you enough for your help.

Mary C.Freshfield, Liverpool, UK

This expert is wonderful. They truly know what they are talking about, and they actually care about you. They really helped put my nerves at ease. Thank you so much!!!!

AlexLos Angeles, CA

Thank you for all your help. It is nice to know that this service is here for people like myself, who need answers fast and are not sure who to consult.

GPHesperia, CA

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

JustinKernersville, NC

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.
