[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Ok so according to my mom it smells different in my room then the rest of the house, go figure it is the work of Dasher. :| :roll:
so i can make my room smell good i was wondering is it harmful to a beardie's health if you use scented candels or air freshener?
thanks!
---edit
ok so maybe i didn't state that right.
i would just rather have a good smelling candle than dasher smell(it is not that bad). So i was worried about if this would harm his health.
thanks once again.

I guess the first question is how clean do you keep the viv ? Yes dragons have a stronger smell to their fecal than others, but if you are wiping the poo out as soon as you find it, than the smell shouldn't be overwhelming.
My next thought is that if the poo is really smelly, than perhaps a fecal exam would be in order. When a dragon has parasites, the poo is really really Stinky !

How long have you had your dragon, is he just settling in ? or have you two been together for some time ? If just settling in, than give it a couple of weeks, and if the odor hasn't reduced, than get a fecal.

Now, as for covering up the odor, I would recommend a scented candle over incense, just because a candle won't trigger any reactions that incense might.
Also it won't be too much scent, if you know what I mean.
Hope this helps out !
Oh, just a thought.... What are you feeding Dasher ? That can have an effect too !

i clean his tank regularly, and maybe i didn't state it as it should have.
i would rather have vanilla/lavender candel smell than his smell.
i feed him his veggies and crickets.
I'd do anything for my beardie.
lucky him. :mrgreen:

I can't say for sure but.. . Scented air fresheners, and candles can be bad for some humans. They can even cause Asthma felines, canines, and rodents... I can't really see then being very good for any animal, especially not one as small as a Beardie.

Now then again, I really think it would all depend on exactly how strong the scent was, and how close it was to the enclosure.
