Hello, I have a bearded dragon. His name is drago. He is 19 months old and I have had him for 18 months. He recently got this bump on his tail and I haven’t gotten around to taking him to the vet. Does anyone have any advice on what it may be or things I can do to keep him healthy until I can take him to the vet?

KarrieRee doesn't have an answer but is tagging someone else that might know. AHBD will chime in at some point.

do you have crickets in the tank? i wonder if that is a bite. just a random guess but the only thing i can think of off the top of my head.

I don’t leave crickets or anything that would bite him in the cage. When I first got him though he did get bitten by another bearded dragon on the tail. He had tail rot but I took him to the vet and he took some antibiotics and was perfectly fine for months until now.

It might be a cyst or abscess, a vet is usually needed to treat it. You can dab it with watered down Betsadine a few times a day until you see a vet.

Hello,

How is your dragon's tail looking?
I agree with AHBD, it appears to be either a cyst or an abscess which is an infection. Could a
cricket have bitten him there? Is it hard or soft to the touch?

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
