HELP NEEDED-I think my bearded dragon has tail rot.

Postby Untitled » Tue Jun 26, 2018 8:50 pm

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

A few months ago I noticed that my bearded dragon's tail had gotten darker and shriveled up on the end and a few days after that that part fell off, I went to my local reptile store and asked them about it and they said that considering there was no discoloration anymore there was nothing to be worried about. It was fine for months however a few days ago I noticed that she had developed dark spots on her tail and legs. I don't really have the money to take her to the vet, however I am extremely worried about this and I don't know what to do. If there's anything that can be done besides taking her to the vet that would be great, however if it comes down to it and there's no other way to help I will really try my best to scrape up some more money to take her to the vet, because I really do not want this to hurt or kill her. I know these aren't the best pictures but if anybody would be able to help that would really be appreciated. Image

It looks like the tail has healed over well. The spots look like they are blemishes on the scales. Kind of like freckles. Those are fairly common and nothing to worry about. It looks like there are areas about to shed as well. Keep an eye on the spots to see if they expand or start to look wounded or scabby. If they stay as they are then they are likely just blemishes and nothing to worry about.

Okay thank you so much, I really do appreciate the help and I'm very happy to hear this. I will definitely keep an eye on it.

Hi there, is it possible that that's some poo stain on his tail ? See if it comes off if you give him a 10 minute soak + use a toothbrush to stroke down the tail toward the the tip.

I'll definitely try that, it could definitely be possible I just didn't even think of it.
