One of the most common issues with bearded dragon health is the risk of impaction. Impaction is caused when your lizard cannot fully digest their food, thus causing a blockage of the intestines. This is usually caused by substandard living conditions and an improper diet. Before you run off to the vet, there are a few home remedies that have proven to be very effective in minor cases.

Although poor husbandry is the leading cause of impaction within beardies, this problem can arise in even the most ideal of settings. For instance, if you have rescued a lizard that had a serious digestive issue in the past, their intestines are more prone to becoming impacted later on down the line, regardless of the current conditions it is living in.
