An important role is the detection of disease symptoms. Good observation of your animal is worth. Watch with observing on; behavior, eyes (this must be clear), attitude, activity, appetite and color (bearded dragons that are often not feel dull/greyish in color). Make sure you, your bearded Dragon well knows and so know when he exhibits abnormal behavior. In reptiles can be quite let visible, that they are sick. Check the animals daily (e.g. during feeding) on their health. When you reach in notes that the bearded Dragon abnormal behaviour.

Some diseases are only with security fix after an investigation of blood or feces. So always take some fresh faeces (feces) to the vet. Put the sick bearded Dragon apart from the other or other to soothe the animal so. The best than paper towels so that the stool can be observed. Make sure the temperature pleasantly warm.
