Swollen red bump on foot.


New member
Help, I noticed my beardies foot is starting to swell, he doesn’t seem in pain I can attach a photo. He has MBD. His cage doesn’t have any substrate and he has a 10.0 Arcadia UVB. He gets calcium and other vitamins regularly, he is eating and drinking fine as well as defecating frequently.

He recently had a vet appointment. Everything looked good until a few days later that’s when I started to noticing it becoming swollen. I don’t mind taking him back to the vet, but is this something I can remedy at home or is it more serious? Thank you

Yes, as Karrie requested, please post a picture of his tank setup & supplementation schedule
for us. How long has his foot had this swelling?
Since he has metabolic bone disease, that definitely complicates his health due to calcium
absorption problems. Are there any other areas on him that have swelling?

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
