My 10 year old bearded dragon fell about 8 in. onto concrete

Customer Question

My 10 year old bearded dragon fell about 8 in. onto concrete and landed on his back 2 weeks ago. His stomach looks lopsided and has orange rings around eyes. Still eating and pooping. Can he be hurt from the fall?
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dragon's name?
Customer: Leo
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Leo?
Customer: It has been hot in our area and is actually my grandsons pet and on occasion may have gone a bit without water.

Expert:  Joan replied 1 month ago.

You need to have it posted on your computer or a Photo server ie Photo Bucket. Once that is done use the Paper clip icon in your tool bar to post the picture.
