My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 35+ years and have worked with Reptiles for 40+ years.
A Soak a few times a week is important for a Dragon and would be a good ideea if the Dragon has reguritated or thrown up.
AS Far as Super worms and meal worms they should not be fed to dragons, They are not digestible because of the hard outter shell made of Chitin and on a second note they are too high in fat and have been found to cause liver disease when fed long term. There are betteroptions. Silk worms, crickets, Phoenix , dubia roaches and horned worms are much better feeders.

Since she is under a year she is still on 80% prey and 20% Veggies. You can try Damdeion greens and flowers, and you can also try a fruit baby food as a salad dressing. Anothr favorite is Butternut squash mixed in feed it raw in the veggies. Some times it takes tough love with the veggies. Phoenix worms are another great feeder. Make sure you gut load prior to feeding that way the Dragon is getting veggies in the food source.
I like to give a soak a few times a week. It hels them pass stool and hydrates them. Once the soak is over we rinse with clear water. So basically you can give a soak at any time. It does not hurt them, helps with stool and keeps then hydrated. The big issue I have is with the sure worms and meal worms, they are not diegetible and cause more harm than good.
The soak will help with the shedding. The white around the neck may be a precursor to a body shed. Dragons will blow themselves up to get read for shed to help relieve pressure of the shed. Unfortunately they cannot do that on feet and legs.
You are welcome. YOu may even see a Dragon pop it eyes. It is scarey but they do it for facial shed. If I have addressed your concerns, please take a moment to rate my service. I am not paid by the site until my service is rated.
