My bearded dragon has a droopy pouch under its chin that feels soft, lightweight, and liquid-filled when touched. It doesn't seem to cause any discomfort, and its overall condition is good. Could you please tell me what this condition is and what measures I should take?Thank you for your help!

With that, I would go to a reptile vet as soon as possible.
It is for sure not a normal body shape, and nothing you could get done with some home-made remedy. Could be a cyst or such.

I'd also recommend going over things like temperature, light, food in addition to going to the vet, as there something might be off and correcting this might help your dragon heal in addition to medical treatment, but to me it looks like going to the vet is required.

Could you please let us know, in addition, which kind of light you are using for your dragon? What do you feed, any supplements?
Have you ever had this dragon, or did your dragon have a a different owner before?

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
