How would you describe this foaming at the mouth? Do you have a photo?

Are you positive it wasn't just them having bubbles in their saliva after eating something? [Click image to enlarge]
(this was the best photo I could find to describe what I mean, photo credits to Google).

Edit; I'm agreeing with the other posters it could be a serious Respiratory infection.

Another possibility might be mouth rot, both of which are pretty serious and I would say get your Beardie to a vet ASAP.

Hello,

Pictures of your dragon would be great, if you have them. I certainly hope he isn't literally
foaming at the mouth though.
We need information on your tank setup also, it helps immensely when trying to go through
problems & causes.

Greetings,

How has your dragon been lately? Have you witnessed any more foaming? Have you gotten him seen by a vet? I hope all goes well, please keep us updated! :)
