HELP! MY BEARDED DRAGON ATE A DEAD ROTTING CRICKET

I was getting the feeder crickets when I realized there was a dead cricket (rotting with bad smell) on the floor, my bearded dragon (8 months) likes to hangout with me while I get his food. Then I realized the rotting dead cricket was suddenly gone and my bearded dragon was CHEWING then I realized he ATE IT. What should I do??? I'm afraid he could get food poisoning because the dead cricket smelt horrendous. What should I do????

Hello,

Well, he probably wont get food poisoning but he likely didn't appreciate the taste. It's possible it
might upset his tummy. You can get some activated charcoal into him to detoxify his system. How
is he acting right now, is his beard normal color or did it turn gray or darker in color?
There wasn't any poison which caused the cricket to die, correct?

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
