Juvenile Beardie Ate Unknown Plant

I have a 8 month old bearded dragon that i was holding in my lap, and he jumped further than I thought he could over to the windowsill and bit off the tip of a cactus. I tried to pull it out of his mouth but he still a good amount of it. I am aware this is 100% my fault and I’ll be much more careful in the future. I have no idea what species the plant is or if it’s deadly or not, since it was a gift and doesnt have a label. If anyone can give me advice and identify it that would be helpful! He’s acting normal right now but this happened 5 minutes ago.

Most cacti are edible but im not sure what variety that one is. It looks to have a lable on the pot goolge any info on the label and try to find the variety. Or use a plant identifying app. Once you know what it is you can research toxicity. Personlly i think the thorns are probably more an issue than the plant. But im no expert so please try to identify it

I tried posting a picture of the label but it didnt work, ill upload it again
I also googled theblabel but i didnt find anything since it doesnt have the actual plant name and my plant identifying app wasn’t helpful
What do you think i should do about the thorns? Its worth mentioning that they feel soft and aren’t too prickly but they could still cause issues and i dont know what to do
Thanks for responding!

I did some research last night, i couldn't find that cactus. As fas as the thorns those look like the little fuzzy one. They irritate if you get into them. I would keep an eye on your dragon if it looks like it has discomfort i would seek a vet. I live in the desert and get into them sometimes. The only way i have founf to get them out is a good piece of tape or scrapping with an edged tool (aka my pocket knife lol)
But i can't imagine how to do that for your dragon

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!
