    Hi Hazel, do you feed a lot of fruit? too much fruit can give them soft jaws as well as tooth decay.Dragons need to eat hard veg such as carrot or pumpkin for jaw exercise. Check out my favourite website for tips on feeding veg etc.

    I dont think you'd need a blood test, but I'm also not a vet. My reptile vet insists on a longer consultation to begin with to run through all your husbandry and care. Usually there's something they can pick up by just chatting with you. Be prepared and take photos of your enclosure, test all you temps, document when they poo, what they eat, weight too if you can. Take a fresh fecal sample for internal parasite testing. My beardie has a receded gum on one side, and the vet recommended more crunchy food. Not sure on the discoloration though, may be fungal or something. If your vet doesn't ask about your husbandry at all - ditch em, they know nothing about reptiles.

    Thanks I'm just worried she may have something like liver failure or fatty liver disease as depression and yellow gums are some syomtoms of both
