Bearded Dragon Injuries

 

Bearded Dragon Injury

There are various types of Bearded dragon injuries, some more commonly seen than others. The most common type of Bearded dragon injuries is most probably Bearded dragon biting injuries. This type of injury is very common amongst juvenile Bearded dragons, especially where food is limited or where overcrowding takes place. Larger bearded dragon juveniles also have a tendency to bully smaller ones, which can lead to all sorts of Bearded dragon injuries. Bearded dragon biting injuries are also seen in adult Bearded dragons during the breeding season as normal part of Bearded dragon mating behavior.

Bearded Dragon Falling Injuries

Bearded dragon falling injuries are also seen from time to time. Irresponsible handlers or incorrect Bearded dragon handling can lead to loss of control subsequent falling of the animal. When a Bearded dragon is carried by its owners these animals are known to dash into a direction, making it easy for them to end up in the ground. Bearded dragon falling injuries can cause major internal injuries and bone fractures. Internal injuries from falling can be identified within the first few hours by enlargement of the abdomen or blood in or from the mouth. Later signs include Bearded dragon lethargy and unwillingness to eat.

Fractures from falling injuries will be seen by leg or tail swelling or reluctance to use the fractured extremity. This type of Bearded dragon injury can in rare occasions be complicated by the introduction of infections into the injured tissues.

Bearded Dragon Injury Treatment

When any type of Bearded dragon injury is suspected, it it must be presented to a reptile friendly veterinarian as soon as possible. Expensive radiographs and/or ultrasonography might be necessary to diagnose the type and extend of the Bearded dragon injuries. Parenteral fluids (drips), antibiotics and some degree of pain medication might be necessary to treat some of these cases.
