    Re: Bearded Dragon Prolapse

    Oh my ....that poor Bearded Dragon....At least the owner took him to the vet and had it corrected....thanks for posting those, I can honestly say that while I have heard of prolapses and "knew" what it meant, I certainly never would have imagined anything like what was shown...and obviously I REALLY hope that my own Bearded Dragon NEVER has to go through that....OUCH

    Re: Bearded Dragon Prolapse

    Oh jeez, this poor dragon, I just pray she's ok. What a thing to go through. I know it's terrible to go through as a human, I can only imagine as a dragon.

    wow...I had no idea, I have two Bearded Dragons quite healthy and successfully happy too - I have had them since July of 2009, so they are about 1 year and nine months old. What is this from or how does this happen?

    Edit: Oooh my goodness, never mind I just looked it up. Good grief, I guess all I can do is keep taking good care of Smokey & Fiona!

    Ouch, that looked painful! How does a prolapse happen? Guess I should go look that up. Thanks for the photos. Very informative.

    Re: Bearded Dragon Prolapse

    Wow, amazing x-rays to go with the prolapse.
    How is the bearded dragon doing now? Is there a greater chance for it to happen again? and Do they need to take something like a stool softener to help them along while they recover from the surgery?

    The dragon is doing good. The sutures were removed after 14 days. There is a much greater chance of it happening again because it is unknown why the first prolapse occured. Other than the prolapse itself, the dragon was in great health. They did use a stool softener called lactulose while the sutures were in. The opening was very small to prevent another prolapse while it was healing. This meant the stool had very little room to pass through so it was pretty much liquid. lol (I wouldn't have been able to answer this if my wife wasn't here. lol)
