I just shut my bearded dragons head in the sliding door on the top of his encloser I was dropping his crickets into his cage and while I was I looked over and he was on his hammock sticking his head out I freaked out Idk know why but in a reaction I screamed and shut the door on his head he jump and showed his bearded when I tried to comfort him he opened his mouth and showed his beard he finally calmed down let me pick him up and he started to chase the crickets and was eating them I just want to know if I could have caused damage?

Keep an eye on him-- if he starts black bearding lethargic behavior you may want to get him into the vet--- watch for anything out of his normal behavior

Could be the stress from the incident the heavy breathing- he looks fine- if he starts black bearding then its time to be concerned -- how is he getting to the vermiculite? What is that? Hes beard looks fine -- it it goes black then there could be a issue - black beards are a sign of distress or pain

So when I put the crickets in sometimes the vermiculite will fall in and okay but yeah I was just conserned I don’t have many reptile vets around me and a exam will cost 100$ is that a good price?

If he hasnt turned black by now I am sure hes ok--- I will post a website for you to find a reptile vet in your area -- www.arav.org
Vets are different costs -- it depends on the area your in -- but you might want to establish a vet anyway - I am lucky I have a really good reptile vet where I live she is kind of spendy but worth the cost- I just had two fecals done that I dropped off the cost on them was $37/ dragons test -- both test for them came back clean --
some vets can be horrible cost and NO good -- you might want to read the reviews on the vet if you find one or more --
