What are you using for a uvb? Where is the uvb? Top of screen or inside the tank? How are you getting surface basking temps? A digital probe thermometer is the most accurate - what is the humidity in the tank?

I use a uvb strip, usually my bearded dragon likes to be a dare devil so I keep it on his screen to prevent burns I have a thermometer in the tank but a digital probe I use as well, the humidity is 30 percent

Ok depending on the UVB bulb the screen is going to determine where it goes -- please tell me what the bulb is T 5 or a T 8 and the screen is it a fine mesh like a screen door or a wide hole type - this will cause stress marks if hes not getting enough UVB -- a long w/ surface basking temps -- you need these all correct

It's a wide hole type and the uvb is T 5 he also goes outside when it's nice out for an hour or 2

Ok the T 5 can sit on top of the screen but you want a piece of basking decor directly under it 8-10 inches - what are his surface basking temps? they should be 95-100 taken w/ a digital probe thermometer - its great your getting him outside -- green leaf lettuce ? is that iceberg? here is a website for nutrition

Green leaf lettuce isn't iceberg, his surface basking temp is 98 his humidity is 30 percent

Ok so that all sound good if you need to make adjustments for your uvb do that and then watch his behavior - if it's correct do you have any other animals in the house dog or cat that could be stressing him out? Is he near a window where he can see birds?

I have dogs and cats but he's never been stressed out by them before hopefully he'll be ok thank you for the help

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
