Customer: My daughter brought me her bearded dragon. She puffed her beard really big and mouth was open all the way and she was tossing her head side to side. After I thought she was dead. She stared to come around but is breathing irregularly and is sometimes gasping.
JA: I'll do all I can to help. What seems to be the problem with the dragon?
Customer: I tried getting her to drink water from a syringe and tried getting her to eat critical care from syringe but could only get a few drops in.
JA: Where does the dragon seem to hurt?
Customer: She doesn't have any injuries
JA: OK. No obvious pain. Can you see anything that looks wrong or different?
Customer: just the breathing
JA: Is the dragon eating normally?
Customer: Has been eating less the last couple of days but has not eaten at all today
JA: OK, abnormal eating. The Expert will know if the dragon will be able to digest that. What is the dragon's name and age?
Customer: Kesha is almost a year old
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Kesha?
Customer: She is gasping and lethargic
