Bearded dragon has a large area of yellow, what looks like puke, mixed with what looks like a few eggs, in her cage. She has laid eggs before (non-fertile), but they were all just dry.

UVB is the length of the cage. Basking light is 45 watt and we also have a night spotlight too. Purple basking light at night. She eats super worms, blueberries and romaine lettuce. Sometimes cucumbers and raspberries, but not often. Had a water bowl and also a heated rock. Terrain is crushed walnuts.

Hello,

You have two serious issues right now with husbandry. Get ridn of both the Heat rock and The walnut shell immediately. The heat rock can cause serious burns:

The Walnut shell causes blockages and Perfoates the intestinal track with sharp edges,

You should be using Paper, tile or cage carpet.

Please take care of these two issues while I work on the rest of the answer. Therare diet problems as well.

I will be working on the rest of the answer.

The diet is not good. The dragon over a Year should be getting 80% nutritious is collard greens, mustard greens, dandelion greens, escarole, curly endives, and buttenut squash. This is a veggie nutrition sheet use the Green color foods. http://www.beautifuldragons.com/Nutrition.html

You should never feed Super worms or meal worms. They are high in chitin and over time can cause liver damage.

We need to do a warm soak and gently massage the abdomen to help produce a stool. I suggest for prey going to crickets, silk wprms,Phoenix worms and dubia roaches at only 20% of the diet.

Once we get the walnut sheel and super worms out of the dragon'zs sustem it should do a lot better.

Please hit reply to discuss this information.

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.

Just let me say that this encounter has been entirely professional and most helpful. I liked that I could ask additional questions and get answered in a very short turn around.
