Boo-boo & baths

Not open for further replies.


My beardie seems not to be drinking his water in his cage so the last 2 wks I've been bathing him and he seems to sorta enjoy it and afterwards he seems more "peppy". Also he has a boo-boo that I've been watching and I wanted to see of anyone has any opinions on the boo-boo and the bathing ...

The behavior around bath time sounds normal to me; my Eri (normally a territorial grumpy pants) magically turns into a sweet cuddle bug after baths!
Lots of dragons prefer to drink from the bath rather than a bowl, too.

Wish I could help with the owie on his lip, you're sure it's an injury or something, not just stuck food?
Is it possible that maybe one of his feeder might have bitten him?
It's really hard to see on the pic, so a close-up shot would be helpful.
If it were outside of his mouth I'd suggest eat applying diluted betadine, but I don't know if that's ok inside the mouth.
Hopefully you get a response soon!!

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
is tape safe for fixing something in my leopard geckos hide?
Day 3 of brumation. It's a struggle. I really miss my little guy. 😔
