Beardy producing a lot of saliva.

Postby BadassDolphin » Mon Jan 04, 2021 8:18 am

Recently I noticed my beardy Spike is producing a lot of saliva, noticed it one day when he was eating. My special boy was born with 1 nostril, despite that though he still breaths like normal, and has been completely healthy since I got him. (Roughly 3 or 4 years ago) He has started the process of shedding, so I'm wondering if his nostril might be clogged. He isn't breathing through his mouth, and is eating just fine. He does drink plenty or even a lot of water. He has a water bowl that he does in fact use, and because he is shedding now I've been giving him 15 minute baths everyday to help. Before I take him to the vet I hope some of you can offer some advice.

I'm thinking about once the shed starts peeling I'm going to help him out with his nose, get it unclogged.

Hi there, can you post pics of good boy Spike's face ? You say he is breathing O.K and that he doesn't open mouth breathe but how do you see the saliva, is he drooling ? Sometimes when they drink a lot they drool afterwards. Anyway, here's how to post pics :

Wasn't able to take a picture of his mouth, but an update on his shed/nostril it started peeling today so I helped him out and got a huge chunk of skin to come out of his nostril. He did start breathing through his mouth rather then his nose a couple days ago, so I hope he starts breathing through his nose again. He doesn't appear to drool at all either.

P.S Should have seen the huge sigh of relief he gave me after I got the skin out of his nostril :lol:
