Prolapsed Beardie! Vet Couldnt help


New member
Beardie name(s)
I need some advice for my beardie. He prolapsed Friday night and i could not find a vet over the weekend in my area who could help. Monday morning i called the vet but they couldnt see him until the following day. (Ive been doing sugar baths and sugar paste in the meantime). When i took him in she tried to put the prolapse back in but was unsuccessful. It was already showing signs of being necrotic. She told me he would need surgery or to euthanize him.. :( I dont have money for either and i am so desperate to help this little guy. ANY advice is appreciated. I know he is in pain and I just want to try and make him as comfortable as possible.

I don't have any experience with a prolapse but if it's already turning necrotic and a vet couldn't help I don't know what else could be done unless you find another vet. I've heard you could use raw unpasteurized honey on it but again if it's already turning necrotic I don't know how much anything can help it at this point unless you find a vet who's willing to help. Is there any way that you can borrow money or I'm not sure if Care credit works in this situation but I would look around for anything that could help bring him to a vet so he can get the surgery that he needs.

Is it a hemi -pene or a full rectal prolapse ? If the vet can't do it you'll either have to do it yourself or find another vet or sadly, put him to sleep. Please post pics of it.

Oh dear, I am so sorry, how is your dragon doing today? Have you been able to get the area back
in at all? As suggested, raw unpasteurized honey or ky jelly works, too. If it is necrotic or appearing to
be necrotic, it is imperative to get some type of care if at all possible. He wont make it otherwise.

Let us know how he is doing.

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!
