My beardie halfway swallowed a hair

Postby Finleythebeardie » Thu Feb 21, 2019 5:11 pm

My 4 month old beardie halfway swallowed a hair and it’s still hanging out if his mouth, I tried to gently pull it out but it’s stuck and I don’t want to hurt him. What should I do?

Should I just let him swallow it, will that be bad for him?

I'd snip off the loose end that's hanging from his mouth and let him swallow the rest of the hair with a meal of insects.

Chances are it'll pass through his digestive track without causing any issues.
