Hi I have a bearded dragon, she seems healthy by tends to do stay under her log all day and for days on end, I get her out and bath her every few days and she perks up and stays on top of her log the the rest if the day, when I put food in she just stares at it then doesn't bother hasn't eat veg for about 3-4 weeks will eat just the odd cricket locust at night she goes back under her log and stays there till the next bath time how can I get her more active or is this just semi brumation ?

Couple of things here, bathing isn't part of the required husbandry for dragons see this post viewtopic.php?f=8&t=1372 and it's also possible that your dragon has intestinal parasites, in this case I'd get a fecal float done to rule this out. Given the time of year however it is probably brumation in which case this should help viewtopic.php?f=4&t=477 . I'd stop bathing, get a fecal float done and then assuming she's an adult look at brumating her.
