Does my beardie possibly have mbd?

Postby Babybulldogz » Thu Apr 18, 2019 8:50 pm


Hi everyone, this is the first time I've owned a bearded dragon and I've been feeding her the recommended amount of calcium in crickets and occasionally veggies all her life. I also have the proper temperature at about 98 for the basking spot and I noticed shes maybe small for her age being 7 months and being only 15 inches long. I noticed when she slept on me I couldnt expose her mucous membranes if I pulled back close to the lips but when I pulled lower down I could see the gums. Am I just overreacting or is this something I should actually be worried about?

So you have any pictures we could see of her, along with the tank setup so we could see
her physical condition & lighting placement?
What type/brand of UVB light are you using, supplementation brands & types used, the
substrate used, foods given, as well as the temperatures in the tank & how they are
measured will help out.
Are her gums pink in color or white & pale in color?
Can she climb, walk & run normally?
