I Have A Bearded Dragon And She Was Given To Us Because She Lived With A Male Bearded Dragon Who Kept Fighting With Her Which Has Caused Her To Loose All Her Toes On her Front Foot It Looks Really Painful But We Cant Get Her To A Vet Because We Have Not Got One Local And We Cant Keep Her Out Off The Warm For To Long What Shall We Do ?
She may need antibiotics and pain medication. Unfortunately, these are prescription items and the dose must be carefully calibrated by a vet because the bearded dragons are small and easily overdosed if too much medication is given.
It is not difficult to keep her warm enough in a car if the car is heated before putting her in it. Hot water bottles can also be used. Taking her to a vet who is familiar with exotics would be best. Alternatively, please call a local zoo that keeps exotics, or a pet store that has employees who are knowledgeable. Zoo's and pet shops may be able to help.
Please also post this question to the exotic forum.
