It does look like there is some irritation going on. Are you able to reach the stuck worm? I would try to remove it if you think you can do so safely. Perhaps using a q-tip would help to fish it loose. If you can't reach it, then perhaps a visit to the vet would help. They have more tools at their disposal to help out with this sort of thing.

Hi there, is Gregory breathing O.K or struggling ? Is there any evidence in the tank that he vomited ?

Hello everyone thank you for the responses. Gregory is doing well now. I took him to the vet. The vet said he had so much food in his mouth we don’t know why he was saving all that food. He had meal worms and greens in his throat and so the vet tried to get it all out but Gregory wouldn’t sit still so they had to sedate him and clean out his mouth. They also did blood tests so I hope everything comes back okay

I'm glad to hear they were able to get everything out. It's not good when they store food in their beards/throat for an extended period of time. I hope everything with the blood test turns out well. I would try offering food by hand for a little while so you can watch him eat it and regulate the amount and speed a bit more easily.

Atleast you found out what was going on -- keep us posted and make sure you get a copy of the office visit for your records so you know what they put him on for future reference

Hello,

Oh poor thing, how is he doing today?
Do you have a copy of the blood test results you could post here or send to me to view?
Which antibiotics are you getting for him?
I hope he is feeling better soon. Since he isn't feeling 100%, try to keep him a little warmer
overnight, around 80 or so, to help boost his immune system right now.
Let us know how he is doing.

Poor guy, has he been at the vets all this time ? Did they say what type of infection he has ? It just sounds like he had too many mealworms in one day and the pics of him showed an alert looking beardie. What type of set up do they have him in ? It may be best for a dragon to be resting at home in their own tank rather than a strange place with a bunch of different animals and him being in a small bare tank. It's really important to see what type of tank + lights they have him set up with.

Greg has been at home with his mom (me) I been keeping a close eye on him. The vet said that he thinks Greg has a bug because of the vomiting And because he has a lot of a yellow fluid in his stomach. I’m not sure about the antibiotic it was all on the phone and I was so stressed out when the vet called that a lot of what the vet said on the phone I didn’t catch. I had Greg for 8 years he’s been my buddy for so long I really want him to get better ;(

Poor Greg,

Do let us see the test results and the antibiotic dose if you can. Hopefully Greg is on his way to recovery. I know it's scary but we are here for you to help guide you and support you :)

So you will be picking up the anti's today when you go back to the vet right? Or have you already given him some?
