hello, my bearded dragon was attacked by my cat this evening and has done exactly as you said yours did. I'm so worried about him he has gone really cold and isn't moving much but is still breathing. he has lost his one eye and she bit through his eye and neck. I have searched the internet for what to do as my vets is closed and said emergency availabity doesn't cover reptiles :'(

thank you for your advice on here and for creating something I can follow. I hope yours has made a good recovery? x

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.


I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
