Question
was wondering what do do at home for tonite vets are kinda scarce where I live that work on lizards.

Answer
Hey there, there are people that do the surgery to correct the prolapse but this would require the bearded dragon to be sedated. also it would be a good idea if the person performing the surgery was a experienced herp vet. This is why you need a herp vet for something like this. If you knew how to correct the prolapse then you would have to figure out how to keep your bearded dragon safely sedated. Your best bet may be finding that herp vet ASAP.

Expertise

I can answer every question towards the bearded dragon except for questions that deal with sickness and disease. I can answer questions on heating and UV rays, the questions pertaining to food, habitat, bedding, breeding, egg/hatchling care, nature, and attitude are my best. Last, I cannot help you with at home sickness meds, always find a vet within your area. I can answer questions regarding body language and movement. I will try to help you to the best of my ability.

Experience

I have owned bearded dragons for over seven years and have been a breeder for two years. Caring and raising bearded dragons has been a great experience in my life and will continue to play a big role throughout my life.
