HELP MY BEARDED DRAGON MIGHT HAVE YF

Postby Pascalisdope » Sun May 09, 2021 5:03 pm

A couple days ago I noticed my bearded dragon had something yellow on his stomach. I believe that it is Yellow Fungus, but when I Took him to the vet he told me it had to do with his liver, yet I think he’s to small to have liver problems, and they gave me antibiotics which I am giving him. Today I noticed that his spot was turning red/brown. Does anybody know how to treat it, I started using Lamisl and Iodine. Any help is greatly appreciated. [Click image to enlarge]

Did you try washing it off -- it looks like a food stain and I am pretty sure its NOT YF

I have tried washing it off it’s still there. And I’ve done everything but he isn’t shedding. He has also been hiding all of today. Could it be anything else?

Its the starting of a shed --- make sure you have the correct lighting in the tank --- this is what you dont want
NO coils for UVB - they are inadequate
NO heat rocks NO heat mats NO colored bulbs ---
You do want a digital probe thermometer stick ons do not give accurate basking temps
You do want a long tube UVB fixture I can give recommendations for those
You do want basking temps 105-110
If you have any questions please ask
the UVB and basking temps are the lifeline of your dragon --- they control the over all health and behavior of your dragon

Yea I have a tube UVB fixture, his basking ranges from 105-109, sometimes 110. As for the thermostat I have a digital one that provides Both the temp and humidity they are pretty accurate. Thank you, for everything!

Good bulb- distance should be 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor :)

Hello,

I agree, it does not look like yellow fungus. I think it is likely a patch of old skin that hasn't shed
off or something. Just keep an eye on that area but it should eventually shed off.
The Reptisun 10 T5 tube is a good bulb. Is it on top of the screen since it is inside of a hood?
How is his appetite doing?

Yes it is on top of a screen. His appetite is good, yet, I noticed that he didn’t seem to exited over it, but I’m going to keep an eye on him. However, I found that his tail also was a bit yellow/red. Could it be stuck shed?
