is it bad for a bearded dragon if you give them medication for parasites or anything else if they dnt have it?

also, does anyone know what a miggy is? its like, a tiny tiny little insect, are they harmful to dragons?

yes it can be bad to give them unnecessary medication. They are dependent on friendly flora to digest their food, and antibiotics kills indiscriminately. So give it to them when they don't need it, they'll feel sick to their stomachs and might go off food.

never heard of a miggy. but if it's a wild insect I wouldn't feed it. you don't know where they've been. they could have been in poison for all you know.

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
