my bearded dragon appears to have salad stuck in his throat. it’s stiff and he’s gulping to try to get it down. he won’t let me open his mouth to pull it out. he’s breathing okay. but i have to leave for work and im panicking he should not be alone right now. is it possible he is storing? this would be weird to be since he didn’t eat yesterday.

Maybe try offering water with a eyedropper to wash it down maybe?
Is he a Dunner? They are know for doing that.

If he was storing it his beard would be puffed out - Can Bearded Dragons Store Food in Their Beard? - Reptile Jam
It would look like he has something in it

Hello,

A lot of them tend to hold some food or fluids in their beards but should clear it out relatively soon.
Are you chopping up the greens/veggies in small
pieces for him?

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!
