blood in the stool

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

Our bearded dragon has some blood in the white part of his stool it looks like his poop shoot is inflamed so i put some polysporen on it and it got a bit better, but i'm just wandering if there is anything else that we can do? I'm looking into getting a fecal done when we go to the vet next week with our uromastyx.

Hello,

Blood in the stool can be cause by several things. The most common reason is hookworms, or a heavy load of parasites usually. Also, having to strain to go to the bathroom if they are either constipated or suffering from low calcium will cause that. Dehydration can also contribute to problems as well.
A fecal will determine whether or not he has worms or parasites. When do you expect to get a fecal done on him?

When I brought Izzy's fecal to the vet, I waited for it to dry and then put it in a plastic baggie. Then carried it in my purse! :D
