So i have had my bearded dragon for a few years now and this has never happened before, on the top of her beard, she is blue and looks like some of her scales are ripped off, it is black and looks like there is blood or puss or something as well as the bottom of her mouth is pink. I cant tell of this is shed but this has NEVER happened. What should i do?

Hello,

That is definitely shedding scales, but a few look like they came off prematurely. This is a pretty
common issue but he will be fine. As AHBD suggested, just let the rest come off when it's ready
& the entire area should heal up well.

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?
