    Hi all,
    I've just had a dragon (3 Y/O) come out of hibernation 2 weeks ago now, and I've noticed some strange coughing/sneezing/burping sounds. They don't happen all the time, although I'm not really home to monitor it. She's not showing any other signs of RI, but it's hard to tell as she just came out of hibernation. For example she eats veggies, but maybe every second day and she hasn't been interested in crickets since coming out of hibernation. Other then that she looks fine, acts fine, its just the sound that has me worried.
    I've done some research and some people suggest that it is RI and others say she's coughing up food stored in the gullet. What do you guys think it is?
    I have a video to show you what she's doing...(Play with sound)

    Vet ASAP, RIs get a lot worse very quickly.

    And crank up the heat, but it will need antibiotics.
