my beardie mushy has issues going on and i need guidance as to what it may be

from my view it seems as if he has fallen and scrapped his lip [in photo], causing him to not eat and drink, from further inspection ive noticed these white marks at the top of his mouth. he had lost a lot of weight, his fat pockets arent fat anymore, his eyes sunk too. he still basks and enjoys it and goes to bed at his regular time. his eyes are always closed now though which makes me very nervous

i dont know if he has mouth rot or what has happened but please send me your thoughts and opinions.

im currently syringe feeding and hydrating him, hes taking it very well too, i wont get paid for another week and a bit so i cant see a vet at the moment as i cant afford it, as soon as i get paid im taking him regardless.

he is the best thing in my life and ive had him for 3 years, i rescued him from the brink of death and have never stopped loving this lil dude, hes my fighter

Hi there, Mushy does have a degree of mouth trauma or rot. The inside color is not the problem, all beardies have a degree of pink/yellow/cream as their natural color in the mouth. The outer edge is crusty and if you can get a couple more pics from that side it might show it better. For now, you can get a product called Maxi Guard to apply with a Q-tip or something. You can use also try betadine diluted with water [ 1 part betadine , 10 parts water ] Raw honey can help as well. It's good that he's still eating from a syringe , just be careful not to irritate that sore area.

thank you so much, i have raw honey at the moment so i’ll give that a go, his mouth isn’t as inflamed today and not as scabby too

hot side stays around 40-41° and his cold side stays around 20-22° i can’t remember what uvb i have but its a deep dome bulb, and his heat lamp is exo terra 100w. kept it this way for the past 4 years
The coil needs to be replaced as soon as possible - I will post link when I get home for what you need-- the basking bulb is good - make sure you have two digital probe thermometers -

My female bearded dragon has recently started gasping for air all the time. She can’t get sleep or really do anything because she has such a difficult time breathing. I think it might be a RI but I’m not completely sure. Any thoughts?
