 Baths?

The person I got Buddy from never gave him bath so he hates them. I was wondering if I could get a cloth wet with warm water them set it on him for a few minutes? Could I just do it when he is about to shed?
Thanks

u might be able to, but it might not help, so i would recomend not doin that, but if u get the rag really soked with water, then it’s possible it could work

Hi,

The best thing for him is a bath because this is how he gets his hydration. Even though he is not used to it, he will get used to it with time. He may not ever like it, but he will get used to it. I would suggest continuing with the baths.

Okay, I will just keep giving him baths. How often should I give him a bath? This summer will be a little bit busier than normal. Can I just give him baths when he is about to shed and maybe once a week otherwise? Thanks!

Oh, one more thing. Whenever Buddy drinks water he like does a weird thing with his beard and opens his mouth, I think he is swallowing. Then after that water comes out of his nose! Is that okay?

Hi,

Once or twice a week will be fine. He needs the baths to stay hydrated, when he’s shdedidng then he needs baths more than normal.....misty him with a water bottle as well on the days you don’t bathe him.

Most beardies that drink will stick their almost entire head under the water.....it’s probably just water that sits int he nostrils as they immerse their heads. I’m sure he’s ok.
