My bearded dragon has purple bruise like scales which are soft to the touch.
Sorry i wrote a whole paragraph but the website has deleted it.
I'll start again. I first noticed this when i saw shedding from his feet, it appears to be a blood blister looking thing, under a few scales, it seems tender to the touch. The same happened when he shed from the nose, the scales underneath were soft and purple coloured. Shedding is unusual as he is a full grown lizard
, and very big for a bearded dragon.
He gets regular calcium and vitamin dusting of his mealworms, but he doesn't drink much. As a precaution against MBD and dehydration i have upped his calcium and have syringed some water into his mouth. I dont thnk it is MBD as his bones are not bendy, he is very active and high energy as well.
The only issue has has had in the past is low circulation in his tail, which the vets are just keeping an eye on, i dont think it has gotten any worse but its certainly not any better either.
can you recommend any treatments, do you know what else this could be?
