Beardy feet problems...

Postby Guy2727 » Sun Jul 14, 2019 7:10 pm

Excuse me but I have a few important questions about my sister's female bearded dragon, stevie. Ok, so this all started a while back when she decided to randomly jump and injure her one small toe. It became black after sometime and fell off. We tried to keep it clean and sick and everything seemed ok. Then, I'm not sure I'd it was coincidence or what, but the same exact toe on the other foot did the same. This time however, we did not see her injure it, it just fell off. So again we treated it as best we would and all seemed ok. Then tonight I realized that the longest toe on her left foot seemed to be broken. It has a curve in it and you can swe where that bone snapped. The bottom of her feet do swe too hot either. What do you guys think is going on? I think her feet are having trouble shedding and it restricted those two toes off, and she just broke the either but I don't know. We do not have money for a vet (if we did I would have taken her there first sign of trouble), so I'm strapped. Any suggestions?

If she has a fine mesh hammock in the tank please take it out until some one on here can look and see what is going on -------------- I am no medical expert but others on here are and if she is getting her toes caught in that it can cause issues - so its better to be safe until some one on here can respond and look

A mesh hammock was the first thing I thought of too that could be the cause. Can you post a pic of the tank so we can see if it could be anything else too?

I was wondering that too. She does have one in there, so I will take it out immediately. Thank you.

Also here are the cage pics. I had to take two because it's a big tank, and also the hammock is still in. I will remove it after posting.

If you get tired of cleaning that sand mat here is a suggestion for another substrate --- either slated ceramic tile or a textured non adhesive shelf liner from Home Depot or Lowes etc both are cheap and easy to clean w/ vinegar/ water 50/50 in a spray bottle --- insects cannot get underneath -- the tile would haft to be cut w/ a tile cutter ---
