Yeah I will try. It's terrible because where I live there are veey few exotic pet doctors. Due to this they are all extremely expensive....

You could always call around and see what the prices would be. You might be surprised. Sometimes the vets work with you and are willing to do it for cheaper, even if they don't tell you they are.

I agree, look around but also find reviews. In the meantime you can start the treatment .

Alright, hopefully something will turn up. If not however, is there anyway this will go away by treating it with the Betadine or Lamisil?

The vet is necessary in the sense that they will confirm if its YF with a scrape. If it is yellow fungus it's very difficult to get rid of. From what I've seen, the lamisil just kind of keeps it at bay as opposed to getting rid of it completely.

Although, I dont have personal experience with YF as I've never had to treat a dragon with it.

I would guess at this point if the YF is the cause of the toes falling off, its systematic and most likely won't be going away. But like I said, no personal experience with it so hopefully someone with some will chime in on a prognosis.

That's why it's important to get to a vet. They can confirm it or not. From there you'll know what's necessary.

Alrighty, I'll see what I can do. Thank you so much for your help, I really appreciate it. I do have a question to. If you would take a look at her feet, there seems to be a distinct line of discoloration. The foot is discolored while up it is normal. The pics I've seen of YF show really crusty scales and such. Maybe she is just on later stages of it tho, so idk. I now see where the vet comes in...

The feet don't look like they have Y.F.

I agree, but can not YF go systematic and start doing damage from the inside out? Or am I mistaken?
Or do you have another explanation for the toes? I am genuinely curious as I haven't seen that happening before.

Yes, it does sometimes cause infection or strange wounds to appear and can affect the toes, it' s logical that this might be the case but it doesn't look like the times I've seen it on feet. Sometimes they lose toes from other types of trauma like too much digging or retained shed.

So what would I do for the feet then?

You can do the same treatment that was mentioned for the tail. Be sure his tank is clean + no loose substrate. Use newspaper with a layer of paper towels on top.

Good news everyone!! This morning I went to check on her and that patch on her tail is shedding away. There is just normal scales underneath:)

That's great, glad to hear it ! Just keep an eye on it because sometimes Y.F. will fall of + then return but this has not been officially diagnosed so we can definitely hope for the best.
