Foot diseases in Central Bearded Dragons

Postby Emeraldcoast » Wed Jan 11, 2017 1:58 pm


Hi EveryBeardie,

Are there any foot disease in Beardies, besides MBD? If so, what kind, images? At 1230 MST today, my sweet little Gizmo passed away. She was an MBD baby I recently acquired. She was only 2-3 mths old. I will perform a necropsy. I hope something stands out, as it is too late to get any blood work.

Hi Emerald, I'm so sorry to hear about baby Gizmo. :( Was there something wrong with it's foot ? There are no actual foot diseases that would kill a baby. Gout can kill a dragon, but that's usually very obvious with swelling of the limbs + it leads to kidney failure, mostly in older dragons.

The baby may have had a hidden illness like adenovirus.
