Bearded dragon ate half of a holly leaf

Apparently a holly leaf from outside was brought into the house and I caught my bearded dragon eating the leaf. He only half should I be concerned ??

I know holly is toxic to some animals, so to be on the safe side, please monitor closely and give your beardie activated charcoal and water to try to flush it out of his system faster. If he starts throwing up or acting sick, I'd get him to the vet.

I saw this quote from our vet moderator Drachie613 (Tracie) for an ingested millipede situation.

"You could make a detox greens slurry out of parsley, cilantro, mint, basil & oregano or
some activated charcoal just to clean out his system, if needed."

How is your dragon doing today?

Oh, thanks for the quote, Aaradimian. :D Yes, either way detoxing might be a good idea, just
in case it might bother him a little bit.
