My beardie has started shedding (again!) hes about 3 months old I believe and is starting to get more and more comfortable with me. My little gremlin of a beardie seems to still be okay with being held whilst shedding and I'm worried that if I don't hold him everyday that he'll start not liking being held and ill lose progress. Which I think is what happened last time. Ive had him for 5 weeks. Should I hold him or wait until he's done shedding? I miss holding him but ill stop if its best for him for the time being

You can absolutely hold him. Just be sure to let the shed do its thing and not try to help out by pulling it off. They can get cranky during a shed though, so don't be too surprised if he isn't too into it.

Agreed.
The temptation to pull the shed will be strong, resist don't do it lol

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!
