Today when I got home my bearded dragon had a black beard. Sometimes he does that when he’s about to poop so I went ahead and fed him some BSFL and Dubia. He didn’t eat any of his salad. I after he ate his black beard went away but then when I went to check on him about 15 minutes later he had thrown up all the roaches. Now is beard is black again it has been for about an hour and a half. I’m just not sure what’s going on I didn’t feed him anything different. His temperatures and UVB are correct I got help on this forum.

O.K, good to hear the positive update !
@AHBD So it has been maybe about 3 to 4 days since beans has pooped. He pooped after the black bearding and vomiting that day and the next day and one other day. So I’ve started giving him pumpkin and a little bit of Apple sauce on his salad and I’m hoping that will do the trick. My question is if an impaction had caused his initial blackbeard and vomiting would he have still pooped after that or do you think his digestive track is just a little bit messed up since he had the vomiting and then didn’t eat as much for a couple of days and is now eating basically back to normal? I guess I’m just trying to figure out if he’s impacted or if he’s just a little bit messed up because of the disruption in his normal eating schedule with him feeling bad last week?

Not pooping for a few days is not a problem in the least for dragons that are past the baby stage. Mine usually only do once a week . If your dragon's pattern was pooing daily then this just probably just threw him off schedule a bit, it's no worry. A little pumpkin or baby food squash is O.K

There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
