Today my beardie had a calcium bath and she fed something serious after! A few hours later I noticed her head has a greenish tint to it. Is this a reason for concern?

I'm on my old busted phone atm, but it looks like shed (from what i can see through all the cracks lol)
I’m hoping so, I found her outside on the street back in June, she was so skinny and barely moving. I don’t know her background, but she has all new stuff for her cage.

Can you post pics of her setup, especially her lights. If anything is off we can help you get it to optimal. Post pics of her also(just because we like seeing them :) ) she is lucky you found her unless you live on the west coast she wouldn't survive the winter.

I would not be giving calcium baths -- please dust the insects w/ the calcium -- you dont want to over due the calcium please -- only dust the insects ONCE per day / feeding --- if shes a year old she should be getting salads every day and insects 2-3 times per week - calcium D3 one time per week and calcium w/ no phosphorus 2 times per week --- your UVB is going to determine how often to give - it helps them absorb/ synthesize the calcium

That's definitely just shed, no problem there. A calcium bath is not harmful at all but is a waste since they don't absorb it. Your dragon looks bright eyed + alert [ good signs ]

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?
