That's the thing..I can't bring to a vet or I absolutely would
Is there a specific reason why you can’t get her into a vet? It’s best to try and get her in as soon as possible, usually if something isn’t solved soon enough, it can get worse and worse, eventually killing her.

Hello,

So sorry your dragon is having some trouble! Do you have any pictures of her, by chance, so
we can see her physical condition?
Is her beard black at all?
If this happened suddenly, my first thought is she ingested something toxic. Could there have
been something on the floor perhaps, some residue from a cleaner?

I don't have money, and I am very aware of that.. I'm worried sick, but she appears to be breathing fine
Perhaps she's sneezing? My family and I all had covid this past week, so could she have gotten it?

I don’t think bearded dragons can get covid. To me, it sounds similar to an RI.

I have serrapeptase if that's the case, but I don't think it's a RI
She just started all of the sudden while roaming on the floor, but when I checked her throat I didn't see anything

Hello,

You can go ahead & keep her on the serrapeptase or start her back on it. Just in the case she could
be developing a respiratory infection, try to keep her a little warmer overnight to boost her immune
system.
Reptiles cannot catch a cold from humans, so no worries there.
Let us know how she is doing.

Hey..it's me again
My other bearded dragon, Mulder, has been to the vet for an abscess in the back of his throat..the vet prescribed him some shots, and told us that if this abscess hadn't decreased in size by the end of the month, then it is likely something other than an abscess (cancer)
His doctor app is near, but I can tell he is hurting, as when he eats--I don't know, but he's my baby and I can tell
Is there anything I can give him for pain..I feel so bad

Thank you

Hello,

Sorry to hear about Mulder, that is too bad. Did they run any tests on the abscess at all?
Is his beard dark right now?
For pain relief, you can try some serrapeptase which does seem to help with pain management,
swelling & inflammation. Did the vet not give anything for him to help with pain?

No..the vet checked his throat for a few seconds, gave us shots we needed to administer every three days, and sent us on our way
I do have serrapeptase if that will help

possible brumation

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?
