I have no idea what this is on his nose, it's been like this for a while, and I thought it would go away. I was wrong. He isn't doing good. I am not sure what to do, I wanted to ask on here before I took him to the vet.

Hello,

Oh my, that is extremely serious. A combination of a rostral injury & mouth rot/infection.
He needs immediate medical attention. If he bangs his snout on his glass tank, then it is
highly likely he injured it repeatedly over time & it has damaged it to the point of infection.
As suggested, raw honey can help with infection. I don't think it's fungal but that should be
addressed as well.
For now, try to keep him warmer overnight, around 75-80F to help boost his system right now.

Let us know if you are able to get him to a vet. If at all possible, try to get him in quickly.

I don’t want to sound horrible but how has this been allowed to get this bad? That poor animal is in a lot of pain and has been for months.At this point I don’t even care if I offend anyone,you have left it to the point it’s got this bad.Just think about the pain he’s been in for weeks.

I can’t even put into words how awful this has made me feel seeing this 😞 get him to a vet so they can help him or at least end his suffering! That poor baby.
I get we shouldn’t judge or moan at someone but this is more than someone not knowing about beardies.Anyone with a set of eyes can see he needs help!

I know that I should have taken him to the vet sooner, but I have been in the hospital for a while and got out a couple months ago, my mom was taking care of him... I would have taken him to the vet if I wasn't in the hospital.

Did he maybe burn it and how long has it been there?
I'm not sure exactly how he got it or exactly how long it has been there. My mom was taking care of him when I was in the hospital... but I was in the hospital for at least 7-8 months and I've been home since about February... so maybe a year?

While I get where your coming from your from we don’t know know their circumstances. She made have thought it would get better over time or even that it was possibly shed. Not only that every one is not in the position to afford a vet. I right now being one of them. I make every effort to make sure I’m doing everything right so that my babies won’t need to go. When my oldest needed to go I was able to take him. If something happened right now I would be stressed to nine because I know right now I simply can’t afford it. I’m sure she is already feeling bad because her beardie is in distressed so as a community we need to be supportive and direct her in the right path to get her beardie back to good health. At the same time we also don’t want to discourage her or anyone else reading this to be afraid of posting there issues in fear that they will be chastised.

The poster isn’t being chastised,I understand if she was in the hospital but someone should’ve taken the animal to the vets.It’s in an awful state which would’ve been a long and painful process.As an owner you take that responsibility on when buying an animal to provide vet care if needed for it,anyone should have money aside or savings for that type of situation or emergency.It’s obvious it needs to go to the vets and shouldn’t of been allowed to get to this point in any circumstances.Yes it’s probably upsetting for the owner but I guarantee it’s 100% more upsetting for the animal.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
