what % of beardies have mbd?


hi all, im doing a research/informative speech about beardies for my public speaking class and i wanted to talk about lack of uvb and mbd; but i cant seem to find any STATISTICS about mbd. i keep seeing "very common", "most common," etc, no actual stats on approximately how many beardies actually have mbd. do any of you know/have a fair guess? or know a source that i could use to find some stats? thank you!

It is common for a bearded dragon to have MBD but I would say my guess is around 30%. I don't know if thats accurate

What about calling a local exotic vet in your area? You could get a better idea on how many beardies who come to your local vets have MDB. Then it is unfortunate the actual number would be higher due to people not bringing their animals into the vet. That could be something to make a point of in your presentation.

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!
