Bearded Dragon hasn't pooped in 2 weeks

Postby Alex05 » Sun Dec 15, 2019 8:05 am

My 1 year old bearded dragon has recently been entering brumation for the first time. She comes in and out of brumation and continues to eat, but less amounts than normal. I have heard a lot of things about stomach rot and I am concerned since she hasn't pooped in over 2 weeks. I try to force her to bask after she eats, but then she just crawls back and sleeps in her hide. I also gave her a bath yesterday, but no luck. I don't want to stress her out more than she already is, but I am very concerned about the fact she has 2 weeks of food still in her belly. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get her to poop or what I should do?

That is normal ----------- make sure she is hydrated ---- keep a weight on her and give her water at least once a week -- it is common for them not to poop for long periods of time --- she will go eventually

Thanks for the quick response! Should I still be trying to get her to poop? Bathing her? Also should I continue to put out salads and live food everyday?

Yes feed her if she will eat-- if she's brumating she may not-- I try and follow their lead- mine has been superactive and wants out and is not eating-- he ate 4 butterworms- yesterday and nothing else- today nothing- he will be 2 next month I am thinking it's male hormones- keep your light schedule as well
