She is about 19 1/2". Around 7 months old. The lizard she ate was about a quarter of her size.

The only real concern would be parasites. Your dragon should be able to digest and pass what she ate. Just keep an eye on her and make sure she has a bowel movement.

Her passing it was one of my concerns. Her next bowl movement, should i take that to a vet?

No. It's really not anything to be too concerned with imo. Not something you should let happen ideally, but not worth being worried after the fact. If in a month or so you notice some loose stinky stools, then you can go get a fecal done.

Parasites would really be my only concern, and that will just take time to manifest if there were any commutable parasites in the lizard that was ate.

This post made me laugh so hard. I am sorry but that was quite an image. Your dragon must be fast and an excellent hunter.
