My son's dragon has developed these spots on his back. We had an appointment with UC Davis but that got canceled. Does anyone know what this is and if so is there any vets in Sonoma County or Mendocino County that take care of bearded dragons? We are first time dragon owners and don't know what's happening. Please help

Thank you. I found a local vet and got an appointment for next week.

As for the basking lights they are pretty high up. There is a log he likes to sit on but we have the lights off to the side.

Please take the log and lay it flat in the tank - your UVB is a T 5? You need a piece of basking decor directly under it approx 12-15 inches --- is that a Carolina UVB fixture w/ the basking bulbs attached to it? You want surface basking temps of 95-100 --- basking bulb needs to be directly over head w/ a distance of at least 6 inches -- those surface basking temps need to be taken w/a digital probe thermometer - you want two of them in the tank - one for hot side and one for cool side --- you also want a digital probe hygrometer ---
can you post a pic of the whole tank please

Then nursing them back to health and their final family home. I regularly help my reptiles vet with emergency appointments and I also provide the care in my little quenteen,
