My bearded dragon is pale with a black beard she was fine a couple hours ago & she ate and everything but now she seems to be like pushing or something she's moving around the tank in different places I'm not sure if she's laying eggs she's done this before but was never pale with a black beard or i dont know if she's not feeling good she had some kind of diarrhea I'm just really worried about her and not sure what I should do for now I'm just keeping a eye on her and trying to leave her alone so I don't make it worse .

Hello,

If you have pictures of her, please post them. What is her age or estimated age?
If her beard is black & she is pale then she is seemingly in distress. I would highly
recommend trying to find a good vet in case she could be egg bound. I hope not,
but this does happen.
Do you have a lay box made for her?

Hello,

I am glad her color has improved some but the black beard is concerning if it is constant on her.
Can you try to get more oral fluids into her, to help with hydration? Her eyes look a little sunken,
probably dehydration right now.
If you can get an x-ray to help determine whether or not she has eggs, that would be very helpful
in case she might be egg bound. I would also think about getting her on liquid calcium if she is
having trouble with laying.

we have been buying the liquid calcium and liquid vitamins from tracie for over a year now. (sir henry won't eat anything with powders on it.) absolutely satisfied with both products. i sent links to them to our vet so he could check them out and he told us to keep using them. would highly recommend!

My 2 year old male dragon has been shedding for 2-3 weeks. I’m worried about it being a stuck shed. I’ve seen on other websites they should not soak and then I’ve seen that they should be soaked. So my question is when should I soak him?
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
