My senior bearded dragon has been having an unexpected fight with tail rot. He gets baths, an antiseptic solution and a topical antibiotic after the bath almost daily. The end of the tail is completely dry, black, and brittle. It’s beginning to split off and my dragon is very dark but still eating and drinking. It seems the dead part of the tail is just hanging by a small patch of healthy scales. I called the vet and they told me to just let it fall off and that it may take weeks. It seems like my dragon is in a lot of pain. He is losing probably 1/3 of his tail, it’s not just the tip. Does anyone have experience with this? I worry he won’t survive an amputation due to his age.
