    I have never seen any mucus in his nose. Nose has been clear. On Nov 20 i was getting ready for work and heard him make a coughing noise and turned around and there was blood in his tank. I rushed him to the vet who told me after making sure his nose and mouth were clear of mucus and blood that it might be a respiratory infection as he was passing food normally still. Vet gave him antibotics and anti inflammatory meds. Told me to keep giving them to him till his reexamination along with soakings. 2 weeks go by where he contiues to cough up blood but the amounts becoming progressivly less. Reexamination time comes vet checks nose and mouth again still no mucus or blood coughing has almost completely stopped. I mention his lack of appetite and the vet tells me to stop the anit inflammatory meds but to keep goong woth the antibiotics for a week after the last time he coughed up blood.
    Also no noises while breathing at all.

    In regards to him refusing the dusted cricket, i added mealworms to his diet (dusted) and he switches between eating crickets and meal worms dusted with no problems. I think he needed some variety of diet.

    I have to disagree with you, my Leo
    looooooooooves to be out,she walks into my hand voluntarily and as soon as I start heading back towards her cage she trys to jump out of my hands to stay out of her cage, I always make sure though that I don't handle her for at least an hour after feeding because they need heat to digest.

    I are referring to this particular Leo that is sick and needs to be left alone in appropriate temperatures. This has nothing to do with your opinion or your Leo. Your Leo is likely housed in a small enclosure and is under stimulated thus his desire to leave his cage.

    The reason I asked about the mucus is due to the fact that they can sneeze nose salts as well and wasn’t sure if that’s what you were hearing.

    Sorry if my reply sounded a little aggressive im just worried about him not eating and what not.
    I didnt realize they did that. Ive heard him sneeze before and just thought some left over calcium powder had irritated his nose.
    I am Hopeful this is his last week of the meds.

    I have just had the realization that i have an extra terrarium left over from my late bearded dragon. I know that it its eother a 40 or 50 gallon terrarium, but it no longer has a screen lid
    i would have to measure once i get home but i wonder if after an extensive cleaning if it would be suitable for my leo once he recovers

    You know, Iím probably one of the most paranoid people you would ever meet when it comes to the possibility of infecting a reptile. Even if your bearded dragon passed away of old age or overall healthy, the chance of passing on a dormant parasite would be on the back of my mind. In my opinion, it will be best to wait to you have the funds to buy him a new one. Itís also important to have a cover. They are capable of climbing on things and escaping.

    One of the humidity gauges has arrived. Where should I set it up inside his tank and what percentage should I be aiming for?

    Between 40-60 is ideal. Move it to at least 3 different spots to see what you get. At his level will be best, meaning lowest to the ground.

    Any luck with getting him to eat? What has his behavior been like? Any changes? Last bowel movement and/urate?
