    HELP! Bearded Dragon Ate Plastic!

    I was syringe feeding my Bearded Dragon and she bit off about half of the plastic tip of the syringe. do i need to get her to a vet or will it pass? She's a little more than a year old and weights about 235 grams.

    You could always call a vet, and ask them if they think it would be a good idea to bring her in. Was the piece big that she swallowed? I'm assuming the reason for you syringe feeding her is because she won't eat on her own?? Is she sick??

    She may have eaten about a quarter of the tip off. No she isn't sick, a while back she was has now she doesn't eat much on her own. I called the vet, taking her in an hour.

    Well the vet wants to give it a week to see if it will pass. She also gave me prescription diet a/d food for her. lets see if this helps because if it doesnt im looking at close to $500 in x rays and procedures.

    Hopefully she will pass it without a problem. I'll keep my fingers, toes, lets, and eyes cross for good luck.
