My brothers bearded dragon has a bit of a crooked jaw, took her to the vet and was told she has MBD (we had her set up wrong), she also has a broken jaw on one side which hangs lower than the other side (can't provide pics atm but will do asap). She's still eating as she normally would (her diet consists of broccoli and crickets), she's also still lively as usual. The vet only gave us the option of euthanasia, we were still in shock so we didn't ask much questions so that's what I'm doing here.
Is there anyway to cure her broken jaw? I've read that you can reverse MBD but I'm also sure this is a pretty severe case and I can't seem to find much info on it.

Thanks to anyone willing to help!

Hello,

Oh yes that might be a bit of time, it's hard to know. Where in Australia are you?
It is a bit hard to find it. I found a couple of websites that both appear to be located out of
Australia that might be worth looking into. If you would like, I can post them here for you.

How are things going today?

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?
