Hiccup he is 4 and Blaze is 2
I have a hammock and this uvb/uva stick holder
What size tank? If its 40 or larger I would recommend upgrading to a 24" Zoo Med fixture w/ a 22" Reptisun 10.0 T 5-- or a Arcadia Pro T 5 12% bulb those seem to be harder to find now - most places are out of stock - if you have a Pet Smart in town check there they have started carrying them - other wise I would get the Zoo Med Zoo Med Reptisun T5 HO High Output Terrarium Hood
the foot could of become caught in the hammock which is very common is the hammock a green mesh or one of those braided ones?

40 gal and the 24” fixture
I am confused -- you posted a pic of a 18" fixture -- which are you using ? the 18" or a 24" ? I would swap out the hammock for a cloth one or a fleece one --- www.pamperedbeardies.com or try www.etsy.com - we see a lot of foot and nail injuries from the green mesh and braided hammocks -- the UVB's have certain distance and placement for a T 5 and a T 8 that is why I am trying to clarify the bulb --- screens also block 30% of the rays so we need to place for screen as well

T5 10.0 and it is under the mesh lid
Ok so w/ that being said please make sure the T 5 is directly over the basking decor - that UVB is going to help heal the toe --- are there any other swelling going on w/ the feet or just the one toe? Trying to rule out gout as a possibility as well - what insects are you feeding?

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!
