Solar my beautiful orange beardie is really sick.
Yesterday I noticed his belly was really bloated so I gave him a tepid bath thinking he may need to poop. (he'd already been earlier)
He drank some of his bathwater as usual but when I got him out of the water he vomited huge amounts(for a lizard) of undigested crickets and the greens he'd eaten the day before.
I haven't fed him since but just dripped a bit of water on his nose this morning.
I gave him another tepid bath this afternoon and again he drank some of the water.
As soon as he was out of his bath again he vomited up the water. He was jet black under his chin and all the way down his belly so I could see he was stressed.
I rang the vets and got him in as an emergency.
The vet was brilliant. She checked him over and said he was in a reasonable condition but she could see his belly was huge.
He's staying overnight to have an x ray and some other tests and I should know what's causing it by tomorrow morning.
She said even though he has been pooping every 2-3 days he could still have a blockage.
I hope he's alright x x x
