Hello, recently I went to the pet store to get my other bearded dragon Supra some worms. As I usually do I was looking at the Bearded dragons and noticed one that had an injured tail, so I purchased them. Luckily I still had my bearded dragons old tank and an extra basking light + UVB tube bulb.

The injury doesn't seem to be bothering them as they haven't shown any darker beard, stress marks, or limping. They still dash around their tank after smaller crickets aswell.

I was wondering if there is anything I can do as the injury looks to be on the older side.

Hi, it's hard to say whether there is more damage under the scales and creeping up through the tissue. For now , Betadine soaks may help kill bacteria [ 1 part betadine to 10 parts water ] If your dragon will sit with you , you can dangle his tail in a small jar or cup of the Betadine mixture for 5-10 minutes a day. If he doesn't sit still for that you can soak him the usual way with the Betadine mixture in a small plastic tub.
After it's dry you can apply raw honey or Neosporin. Hopefully it won't get worse but update here if it does and schedule an appt. with a qualified reptile vet.

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
