Baby dragon pooped, Bloody Urate. Help!!

Postby HippieLizards » Sun Oct 21, 2018 2:36 pm

So Rocket Pooped, and I was horrified to find blood in his poop. 😱 Please help I'm really worried.

He is 2 months old, male, around 8-9 inches, eats dubia roaches, crickets, collars greens, cilantro, and mustard greens.

Yesterday we had to go out of town for a day and The beardies were left without food for probably 30 hours, He seemed ok, but when I went to check on him last night he looked really skinny, bones showing, sunken in fat pads, and really thirsty. :( and finally this morning, Bloody poop. :(

I immediately gave him water and dubias and he seems to look better, his fat pads are less sunken in and he drank for like 2 minutes today and yesterday.

Thank you in advance! 😃

Hi there, it may be that he was pretty dehydrated , had a hard time pooing which could cause the blood. If you see it again though, you may want to get a fecal test done to check for parasites.

How is his appetite ? The next time you leave for a while, put a bowl of bsfl in for him and a small bowl of wetted down greens for hydration.

I hope that was just it as his skin was wrinklier than normal, and his appetite is great, he has been eating and drinking regularly.

and Ok, good to know, I didn't know baby beardies could have bsfl. I didn't have any on hand at the moment though.

Hopefully he will be alright, will post more updates soon.

Rocket pooped this morning, it was a bit watery but overall fine, and I think the water was from him drinking a lot. He is still very active and eager to eat though. :)
