Good morning, Jasper here has been starting to shed around his feet the last couple days, but one of his toes is having a lot of trouble. I’ve been soaking it, but his nail is getting dark now and I’m really worried about the tissue dying. I also don’t want to damage the skin by trying to pull it off. Is there any way to help remove the stuck shed before it does any more damage?

It looks like it's coming loose so it should come off soon. You can apply neosporin [ the kind that doesn't contain pain relief ] That will soften + loosen the skin as well as help with any potential or developing infection.

I am new and looking for a teen beardie. I have been doing a lot of research for about 2 years.
I'm new here but not new to dragons or snakes. Over the 7 years. I opened my heart and home to neglected. unwanted dras and snakes, some critical conditions. Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
