Customer: Hi I have a baby bearded dragon and he isn’t eating .. he will eat some veggies but that’s about it .. he ate a few worms a couple days ago but that’s it .. but now he’s gulping taking big breaths and blowing his beard out .. I’m worried because he’s a baby baby ... he’s real small and I just got him.. it’s going on a week now
JA: Hi there. I'll do all I can to help. A lack of appetite can seem worrying. Does the Bearded Dragon also seem more tired than usual?
Customer: only today .. but it just happened .. usually he’ll be running around his tank all day til bed time . Today he was running around but just like an hour ago he went to sleep .. and now he’s like opening his mouth like he’s gasping for air every few mins ... I thought he was shedding because he has been rubbing his face on things and I see a lil bit of patches on his face round his eyes
JA: Does the Bearded Dragon seem to be in any pain?
Customer: no I don’t know honestly .. he would have stress marks but then when I pick him up his stress make would go away
JA: What's the Bearded Dragon's name?
Customer: Tunchi
JA: Is there anything else the Vet should know?
Customer: his color is changing
