My son has a female bearded dragon that he adopted last
My son has a female bearded dragon that he adopted last summer at the age of 3. She has been healthy and had a shed about a month ago. In the last week we have noticed some small blisters on her back - they appear to be water blisters and they don't seem to bother her when we touch them. She also has developed some lighter patches on her back and tale that look like the start of a shed. If she shedded a month ago, would she shed again already? Also, she has been having watery poop mixed with some solids and pooping more frequently - almost once a day or every other day. … read more

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.
