Today we discovered our beardie who is almost 1 year old, has lost pigment on her tail completely. At first we thought it was time to shed but now im very concerned.
Any ideas!?!?

Hi there, that is definitely just a band of shed. They usually just come off in their own time but you can spritz her in the tank lightly 2X a day to help loosen it. Or you can put a dab of plain aloe [ no added ingredients ] on it. But I've had similar looking patches of crazy shed like that + did nothing but spritz it. She'll be fine. :)
Hi! It is definitely shedding. Spray the enclosure 1-2 times a day. Do not peel of the skin because it may not be ready. If you want to help your beardie shed, give it more baths.

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
