I have a 8 month old bearded dragon, I got him in March, he has been great since I've gotten him, he has had no problems, he absolutely loves his veggies and insects ( crickets ). Only recently about a week ago has he started to poop less, today and yesterday he has pooped a really liquidy poop and it smelled really bad, not like his regular poop. He doesn't want to eat, he hasn't eaten since yesterday evening and he's sleeping more often. I'm worried and I don't wanna jump to any conclusions, can someone help me out? I'm worried that it may be a parasite infection or diarrhea but I'm not sure because he is also starting to shed.

Sounds like parasites---- what kind of UVB are you using and where in the tank--- details of the UVB please --- what are the basking temps and how are you taking them? NO stick ons and NO coils for UVB

I am using the Thrive Desert UVB Bulb, it is right beside his basking light, it is a singular bulb, the temperature is around 96 Fahrenheit during the day and at night its around 73 Fahrenheit. I measure the temperature with both a thermometer inside his tank and a temperature gun.

Ok it's a coil? Is it in a dome? If it is please get rid of it--- it's no good-- you need a 24" fixture w a reflector-- and a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 bulb for a 40+ gallon tank--- if you need help finding this I can post websites or you can look in your area most petstores do not carry the length--
