Palms/fingers irritated from digging (pics)


Sub-Adult Member
Hey guys I'm just relaying what my vet told me that my Amber's palms/fingers are irritated from digging. He told me to monitor her and if she is pooping eating basking and drinking that she should be ok?

I will be honest I haven't tried manuka honey on her finger I was gonna make sure it was ok with the vet. I'm a helicopter parent and I can't change it it's just how I am 😅😁. I was hoping the irritation/cut would heal on its own since she isn't digging/nesting anymore which caused the irritation and cut in the first.

The very last pic was AFTER she laid her first clutch last month on the 13th

She should heal, but reptiles heal a lot slower than mammals so it may take a little while.

Hopefully though luck hasn't been on our side lately she basically had her first ever clutch then she shed a bit and her palm healed.

Then she had her 2nd clutch and it came back on both palms included a little cut along with it. I can't blame her for being a good mom and burrowing her eggs dealing with the pain from her abrasions

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
