So, I just got a rescue...

I just got a rescue bearded dragon, I have an enclosure ready for them but I'm currently quarantining them. The guy who I bought them from wouldn't give me much information, not even its sex or age (I think it's a girl though). I'm mainly worried about three things, it's missing all its scales around both its eyes; which I might be wrong but I think means it has some type of vitamin deficiency. It's missing scales under their belly, and not just a few, near their back legs there is at least an entire half an inch of missing scales, I'm not sure if it is their marking but also some of the scales are a bit darker than the rest. And they have metabolic bones diseases, which was the only problem I knew of; but at the one point where their spine has a kink in it, there is a patch of exposed skin that almost looks like a healing burn. I just want to know what the best course of action may be, and perhaps get a tad bit of advice seeing as this is my first bearded dragon. By the way, they are an older bearded dragon.

Post a pic of the dragon please and we can sex the dragon as well-- next the MOST important thing for a dragon w/ mbd- is a good uvb- No coils- I can post links to good uvb's- surface basking temps need to be taken w/ a digital probe thermometer- 95-100-

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!
