sore  

him
him  
Please tell me what this is I've looked everywhere and can't find it online. He eats daily runs around daily very active it doesn't even seem to bother him. His hot spot gets up to 125 he eats veggies daily with bird seed and lentils I sprinkle calcium on every other day.

Answer
Hello Katrina,

Oh that looks like it could be a burn possibly, but not 100% sure. Have you tried getting some aloe vera gel or silver cream or even unpasteurized raw honey to help out in case it is a burn?
Where are you measuring the basking spots for him?  Could his rock or another area in his tank have gotten too hot where his tails rests?  
He is eating normally right now?  At least he doesn't seem to be in pain though, that is good.  
He is beautiful, how old is he?  Which type of Uro is he, a Mali?


Let me know how he is doing.

Expertise

I can answer questions pertaining to health, UVB specifics, overall husbandry care & supplementation, analysis of blood test results, and behavioral problems & handling. I can answer questions pertaining to bearded dragons, leopard geckos, iguanas, uromastyx & ball pythons. I can answer adeno virus related questions in bearded dragons, & then specifically about the testing methods as well. I am beginning an Pogona Adeno Testing Society in 2008 which will help to begin to start some standardization within the bearded dragon colonies of the breeders who choose to test.

Experience

I have been working with bearded dragons for over 5 years now, as well as leopard geckos, too. I am currently doing rescues, as well. I hope to be able to educate people prior to them purchasing an exotic pet in order to avoid any health crisis with them.

Education/Credentials
I have a master's degree in sports medicine & physiology, & 1 year of vet tech schooling, & am currently working on a reptile certification through the Pet Industry Joint Advisory Council.
