chlorhexidine in bathing water


Original Poster
Hi All!

My bearded dragon pooped in her bathing water. After I remove the poop and wash it away, then fill it with clean water, is it ok if I add some chlorhexidine to her bathing water for like 5 minutes and then wash her with water only? Thanks

Diluted chlorhexidine (hibiclens) is definitely okay to wash your beardie with. Rinsing afterwards with plain water.

This is reptile safe.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
