Weird lip crust

Postby DangerNoodley » Tue Jun 15, 2021 8:55 pm

Hi! I've noticed that my bearded dragon has a weird crust on the front of her lip. It kind of looks like a chunk of calcium? It feels solid and it won't come off.

Could be the beginning of mouth rot. Crust that won't wash away should always get vet checked.
In the mean time, put a little raw honey on it.

Definitely get checked by the vet. In the meantime, you can use some Chlorhexidine solution on the affected area. If it is mouth rot, the sooner the better get it resolved. Do not wait it could spread :(
