My gravid beardie just pooped something weird

Postby Brittneesmile » Tue Jun 11, 2019 12:17 pm

I’m a bit concerned. We’ve been having trouble getting her to lay and while I was gone she pooped this.
She has a vet appointment this Saturday

Hello,

I don't think that is an egg, but extra urates possibly. If it is an egg, then it's only part of one.
Has she had a black beard at all?
Do you have a laybox made up for her yet?
If you have any pictures of her, please post them just so we can see her physical condition.
Has she been eating anything lately?

No her beard has been bright and orange.
I have a lay box. She hasn’t laid anything in it. I put her in for an hour or two a day. I’ve tried a few different lights, hides and putting it in my closet for more privacy. I’ve even tried making one for her tank.
She ate two superworms this morning and on Saturday she ate three but she hasn’t been eating for about a month. I got carnivore care for her and have been making her eat that because she was losing so much weight.

Hello,

How much weight has she lost exactly, do you know?
I would try to get a fecal done on her then, to be sure there isn't something else going on.
Her body condition looks good, from the pictures you posted.
You are positive that she has eggs? Be sure that she is getting plenty of calcium into her
in case she is shelling eggs. Are you getting her to the vet this coming saturday?

Let us know how she is doing.

I’m not sure, I’ll find out Saturday. I know it’s quite a bit. If I can get her to eat and get her to poop I’ll do a fecal.
I’ve been dropping carnivore care on her mouth to make her eat.
When we went to vet a month ago they did an X-ray and said she has eggs. It’s just confusing because I never see her dig ever. Not even in her tank. She paces and walks around the house but never digs. I have a security camera on her in her tank so I can see what she’s doing.

Hello,

Oh ok, they do oftentimes reabsorb eggs before they are fully shelled. Their body just doesn't
lay them & they reabsorb & dissolve then are excreted. If that happens, they usually don't have
much of an appetite which could be what's going on.
I do think that a fecal would be a good idea so you can at least eliminate that possibility of worms
or parasites being an issue for her.

Let us know how she is doing.
