No poop before brumation - we very concerned

Postby csharp2a » Tue Jan 12, 2021 3:02 pm

This past Saturday, our Tannin was all full of energy and doing fine. She pooped in the afternoon had her dinner and was good. Sunday she was fine, had breakfast and dinner and ate normally. Even ate fruit and veggies. After dinner she was on her log and watching us, and then jumped up, ran for her cave and started brumation. She has been a sleepy girl since.

We are very concerned because she did not have a last poop after dinner on Sunday before she hit her cave. She seems fine and is shifting position every so often and will open a sleepy eye to see us for just a few seconds. We are leaving her alone.

We have read all kinds of stuff about her food rotting in her gut. Given that she had breakfast, snacks (salad and fruit), and dinner and then started brumation, we don’t want her to get sick. She is super healthy and we are OCD about her being in top shape.

We were going to wake her and give her a bath to hydrate her and try to get her to poop, but she NEVER poops in her bath.

Has anyone had this happen and how should we be handling this situation?

Thanks!

Too much unfounded fear about that situation. I've never determined if any of my dragons have had a final poo before brumation and never had any bad result. Others on the forum have had the same experience. She should be fine. :)

Thank you for the info. She seems to be doing well thus far but it’s only been a few days. We are nervous dragon parents lol. It’s amazing how she has changed our lives and we hope to make her happy
As the saying goes, this house is maintained for the comfort and security of our Bearded Dragon!
