    Sick Dragon

    Hi, our beardy has what looks like an abscess on his back, I have read that i can lance it and flush it out with 1% chlorhexidine diacetate solution.
    I was wondering if anyone has had a similar problem and how did they treat it.
    Any help would be appreciated.
    Apart from that she is very healthy.

    I wouldn't risk it without a vets advice, you really have no idea what is going on in there.

    I'm with DL on this one - there could be any number of reasons why what looks like an abscess has appeared on your beardie. We have a horse at the moment who slipped in the wash bay and the next day had developed a huge hematomia on her rump - it can't be drained until it clots, at first we thought it may have been a huge abscess. Please seek the advice of a vet.

    Abscesses occur when bacteria (most commonly) or fungi are introduced into the tissue by trauma. It is better for you to seek the vet for a better explanations and solutions.
