Baby beardie foot, shed.

Postby Raquelpatterson » Tue Nov 24, 2020 4:11 am

Hello I was wondering about my baby beardies foot he went through a kinda patchy shed about a week ago and I notice some of his toes were nubby and it wasn't like that when I got him, I have soaked him twice in warm water for about 20 min each in shed ease and no shed is comming off his foot I am worried that he will lose more of his toes any advice would help! I've never had any issues woth shed woth my other reptiles. Thank you!

I'd keep a close eye on that middle finger on the left hand. The tip of it looks shriveled and damaged. The hand is still in shed so if that clears without issue, it may heal over or the end may come apart without causing further issue. If the damaged, shriveled area appears to spread further up the hand then I'd have a vet look into it and treat for possible infection. For now, I'd focus on getting through the shed. Don't interfere with it much, but maybe put some plain aloe on it which may help the skin shed a bit more easily.
