Hey, his eye is like that. He often close it, and sometimes it looks normal. His other eye seems to be okay. He has been shredding around his eye, I thought it was because of that. What is this, and how can I help him?

That looks like the nictitating membrane which is used to further protect the eyes (in addition to the eyelids). I see them draw that across their eye and also bulge their eyes out quite a bit during shedding. My guess is that it's likely related to that and will stop once the shed is clear and the eyes aren't as irritated from the bits of shedding skin.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?

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
