Keeping your bearded dragon healthy and happy is a top priority for any dragon parent. Regular vet check-ups are a crucial part of this care regimen, especially for juvenile and senior dragons. But how often should these check-ups occur? If you've taken our quiz above, you've already got a head start on this knowledge. Let's delve a bit deeper.

Juvenile bearded dragons, those adorable little creatures that have just hatched and started exploring their world, require more frequent vet visits. These check-ups, ideally every 6 months, allow vets to monitor their growth and development. If you're unsure about how to care for a juvenile bearded dragon, our guide on bathing your juvenile bearded dragon is a great place to start.

As your bearded dragon grows, their needs change. They reach senior status at around 5 years old. It's during this stage that they may start to experience age-related health issues. Regular vet visits, again every 6 months, can help catch any potential problems early. To learn more about the fascinating life of a full-grown bearded dragon, check out our article here.
