Hello,

She definitely is pretty big there. How long has the lump been present? Hopefully it is not a tumor
or growth of some type! It could be bone related, possibly not enough calcium or UVB exposure.
When is her appointment, today (Monday)?
If they do an x-ray, please post that here for us.
Has she attempted to dig or scratch at anything, as if she were trying to lay eggs? As suggested,
no enemas, they are just too risky. If possible, ask for an x-ray at least, & if you feel confident in
their ability, a blood test perhaps.

Let us know how things are going.

Hello,

I hope that she likes the pumpkin! Maybe it will help her out. Are her colors looking good
also?
Keep us posted on her!

Hello,

Ok, well, that is a better diagnosis than surgery that didn't seem justified right now! Continue with
softer foods for awhile & extra hydration also. Which laxative did they give you for her?
Keep us posted on her!

My beardie is about 6 months I came home and she seemed fine until I noticed she was dragging her back legs i did touch them and she pulled them away so she does have feeling in them why wont she use them?!
Well as a human nurse the easy answer is the best place to start. Impaction is the big thing to worry about. Maybe while looking at your lighting, go ahead and treat the constipation/impaction . Try leaving her lights on, force feed her some canned pumpkin, baby food peaches or prunes work well also. Give her a warm bath and massage her belly. If you still see no improvement go to the vet!

Hello,

That is great news, she probably feels a lot better. Has she been basking more today?
For now, I would continue the soft foods for awhile longer, to be sure her system is all
cleared out. Let us know how things are going!

Hello,

Wow, that is excellent! Hopefully the bump/lump on her back will completely go away. It has been
pressing on her spine & spinal cord to affect nerves so she hasn't wanted to use her back legs. I hope
she continues to improve!

Can beardies eat Mustard Greens? Hope so I bought some along with some Cilantro. Needed to try something different. He won't eat his broccoli or cauliflower he used it eat it. So I thought I'd give it a try.
HELP what's happening with my beardie!!he has a lifted up scale and it has shedding in a circle around it I noticed it for the first time yesterday and I have no idea what it is and when I shine a flashlight on him it's yellow around the scale what do I doooo
substrate looks scrumptious
My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
