watery poop

Postby bmmst1 » Tue Nov 30, 2010 7:14 am

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Firecracker has been pooping regularly the past few weeks, which is a relief! (he was only pooping once a month for 3 months) but now his poop is very watery, what could cause this? i haven't been bathing him like i normally do because i thought he was too hydrated, what should i do?

There really is no such thing as too hydrated. What are you feeding him? it all the poo watery or is there just a lot of liquid around well formed stool?
When my dragon is eating silkies she has the nastiest, soupy poo ever. Feeding drier greens like collards really seem to help firm everything up.

Good chance its the hornworms, you can try removing them from the diet for a couple days and see if it helps. When was he last check for parasites? If he is clean, then I wouldn't worry too much about the runny poo.

Well, it has me stumped. I'd really suggest a fecal and make sure they check for coccidia and giardia along with the normal internal parasites.
