I just found a good article that talks briefly about it in bearded dragons. And it confirmed my thoughts that the mass can be seen with X-rays. So I'd definitely get the x ray done before euthanizing. The MRI won't be necessary (expensive).

Definitely going to run that X-ray, because i definitely want to be 100% sure. Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, it is really appreciated. I’ll keep you updated on what happens. But i really appreciate you informing me because i was lost at what decision to make, now I’m more calm that i know what i need to do, much appreciated

Also any other questions you recommend me asking the vet?

Hello,

This is becoming way too common right now. I agree, I would definitely get an x-ray to
be 100% sure. Antibiotics are very hard on them & as suggested, can really affect the
bloodwork values.
Be sure that you keep him a little warmer overnight, to help boost his system right now.
If he doesn't seem to be suffering, he can hold on for quite awhile with you. The product,
CBD is showing some promise for cancers of all types.

I actually do have a warmer for him during the night, i hope he actually enjoys it and feels warm 😭 I’ve thought about CBD but never for a bearded dragon, what are the effects?

Hello,

That is great to hear you do keep him warm overnight. Are you using a ceramic heat emitter
then? I am sure that he is very grateful for the warmth.
Start on a low dose daily, just a few drops is fine. There really are not any side effects & I
have known several people who have used CBD for their reptile, without any side effects.

Keep us posted on him! We are all pulling for him.

Update i got x ray done the vet believes the tumor is small, but says we can do the mri but she thinks we will get the same results, i feel like Dracos quality of life has decreases as of a month ago and i feel like it keeps decreasing, he kind of just stays in his basking spot all the time and only poops when i take him out to syringe feed. His only source of food is me syringe feeding, he literally pays no mind to crickets or any feeders, not even horn worms, those were his favorite. I feel like I’m running out of choices and i feel like Draco is suffering. Is it time to let go?

Hello,

I am sorry Draco is having such a hard time. Have you tried the CBD yet, that is supposed to
be effective against cancer & other disease.
He is not eating much though? Have you tried hand feeding him or not? How long has he
been eating on the slurry you are giving?
An MRI is pretty expensive I know. Did the vet mention whether or not the tumor was attached
to any organ?
