Bearded dragon burn or bruise?

Postby spark9098 » Mon Mar 30, 2020 12:09 pm

My bearded dragon recently suffered two injuries and I don't know if it's going to be okay and I'm worried. The first came when I was taking him out of his cage, he jumped and his head hit his basking light directly, definitely freaked him out but he seemed fine. Then yesterday, he tried to eat a worm out of his rock feeding dish, he hit his head when lunging and had a mini seizure, I watched him for hours after and he seemed fine. That's when I noticed over one eye and along his head was much darker than the other side. I think it's the burn because his scales look partially singed. Is he going to be okay?

I tried to upload a new image but the blue button did nothing. I refreshed multiple times. I'm worried and you guys are my only hope.

Disregard entire message

Hello,

Was that area above his eye looking like that before he hit the light, or not? It kind of looks
like a shed coming on, but, if you said it actually hit the light then, it could possibly be a burn.
How long did the seizure last, was it just a short one?
Please review your supplementation schedule & lighting with us, so we can be sure everything
is all setup properly for him. If it's calcium or other nutritional issues going on, then it needs to
be addressed quickly.
