Yellowing of mouth

Hi all. I’m really worried about my beardie. I noticed his mouth is starting to become yellow. He’s active and eating no real changes other than the discoloration. We have an appointment with the vet in two weeks, this vet specializes in BD and is the closest exotic vet near me. Is there anything I should do in the meantime??

Yellow is a color that is natural to them can you post pics?

Pictures would be helpful~ The "yellow mouth pigmentation" is a recessive gene that many of
them have carried down in their DNA. It is primarily from the Pogona Barbata species & is the
basis of self defense.
If the yellowing came on slowly then it is most likely the pigmentation change.
Liver issues or failure can manifest as yellowish gums, etc. If that isn't the case the it will most
likely be genetic pigmentation.

So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
