Return to Rescue Animals
Nala is a new intake so is currently still in her minimum quarantine period.
Nala is a 1.5 year old, female, citrus bearded dragon. She was surrendered as her keepers could no longer pay veterinary bills for her after various cases of pinworm and her tail showing signs of necrosis.
She was kept in a 4x2x2ft vivarium with overhead heat and UVB. She was fed salad daily and hoppers throughout the week but seemed to have gone off her food. She was also given Reptoboost water every other day as her keepers didn’t see her drinking very much.
Nala was a little overweight upon her arrival so was put on a diet. Half of her tail also appeared necrotic so she was booked into the vets to have the affected area amputated. She is docile to handle and we’re hopeful she’ll be suitable for rehoming following her surgery.
An inquisitive girl in need of some TLC!
Nala will need a 4x2x2ft vivarium as a minimum, to allow space to exercise and move around. An overhead heat source should be fitted with a suitable thermostat to maintain a warm-side temperature of 38-43C. The cool side should sit below 30C and 18C at night. A high-level UV bulb should be provided both for a day/night cycle and for UV – 10-12% ideally. Nala should be fed fresh salad daily and staple insects two or three times a week (locusts, crickets, dubia roaches). These should be dusted with calcium and a calcium with Vitamin D3 powder alternatively.
