Injured nail

My beardie was running around and tries to climb a blanket up to a window to loom out. He couldn’t get up more than 4” and he dropped to the floor landing on all four. He did raise his one foot a bit and then he did more running around. He appeared to be fine. About 45 minutes to an hour later I noticed his nail was injured. Not sure if I should do anything with it or not. He is about 1.5 years old and a very active guy who does not like to stay in his tank if it is nice out.

How do I know if there is an infection in his nail? I feel so bad for him. He is still eating, drinking and pooping but not much for movement, which I am guessing is due to pain. Is there anything I can do to help him? This happened on Thursday. Here is an updated picture from today. We have been putting raw honey on it.

Not much you can do, honey is good for any wound but hopefully he won't bite at the nail. It doesn't look infected [ swollen, black, etc ] so it should heal up O.K .

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!
