Hello! My baby dislocated his arm and came home from the vet with his arm taped up so he isn’t able to get crickets. I have to syringe feed him for now, I noticed a small amount of shedding on his chin yesterday but there’s a lot more today. How to I properly do this without taking off any of his shed?

He should be fine- are you feeding from the front or on his side of his mouth? You can spray his face and take a soft baby toothbrush and gently brush to get the loose stuff off -

I had watched some videos on lighting kind of pinching the bottom of his beard to make him open his mouth wide so that I don’t have to pry it open from the front or side
Should I start doing it from the front/side of his mouth (prying it open) instead?

I have my husband help me - he holds blaze wrapped like a burrito in a dish towel and opens his mouth by pulling up his top lip and I pry the side of his mouth down on the side getting my finger in-between and getting the syringe in - I do this a couple of times only putting in so much - he then eats/ swallows the herbivore -

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
