Opening Mouth

Postby sukpmp » Sat Jun 16, 2018 6:14 am

Hi, our Bearded Dragon has started opening his mouth a lot more than normal. We went to the local vet because he also had a small bit of swelling on his lip. The vet has given him some antibiotics for the lip. It seems about the same after a week. Not sure if these things are related by I'm concerned about the mouth opening.

sometimes beardies open their mouth while basking because they have finally reached the perfect temp and want it to stay that way. Them opening their mouth is sorta like us sweating.

does he mostly open his mouth while basking?
