Bearded dragon mouth rot??

Postby carlyandpuff » Thu Nov 26, 2020 6:43 pm

He hasn't been eating for a while now, I've tried a lot of different things but he just seems to not want to eat. I thought that maybe it was because it hurt, because he will be really excited at first and eat one leaf but then he will run away and not eat anything else. I attached the best pictures I could get of inside his mouth. He also has two missing teeth it seems like, which is weird?

Hello,

That doesn't really look like mouth rot, to me. How long has he not been eating much?
His mouth looks a bit irritated & discolored but don't think it is mouth rot. To be proactive,
you could try cleaning out his mouth with a diluted betadine daily, using either a swab or a
soft toothbrush.
He looks to be of good weight & condition based on the picture of him basking. It is normal
for them to be missing a tooth here & there. Is he able to chew normally?
