Two possibly retained eggs??

Postby Delilaheve » Mon Jul 15, 2019 12:45 pm


I just got my beardie a few weeks ago and I have no clue of her history and after being a bit sick for a week I took her to the vet today. They did an x ray and she said she saw what appeared to be 2 shadows near her vent that looked like eggs. So she said to get some sterile potting soil and have it in a box in her enclosure to encourage her to pass the eggs, which I have now done. I was wondering if any of you guys have had this issue before?

Can you post the Xray here ? Infertile eggs, esp. a low number don't always show up very well so it may be something else or just normal part of the anatomy. Post a pic of your laybox as well. Here's how to post pics : Then use the XIMG to upload them

It is possible that she has a few eggs that are retained perhaps. This is pretty common
that they retain eggs sometimes. How is she doing today?
Was he sure that he wasn't looking at the kidneys possibly?
