So my beardie always had a normal poop. But for the last week it changed, he's still eating the same. What does this mean? Please help.

Could there be anything causing him stress? Have you changed anything about his viv, food, etc?

The only thing I can think of aside from that would be parasites. I would take a fresh poo (or refridgerated day-old poo) in to a vet to have a fecal done. They will test for parasites.

Stress in a beardie can occur if anything about their housing, routine, lighting, daylight schedule, or food is changed. It's pretty common and will subside soon.

I would be proactive and take in a poo sample to a vet. If he tests positive for parasites, they will give you a course of deworming medication. You will want to order a probiotic to give your dragon as well, to help maintain the good bacteria in his gut. Here is where I get mine:
