Pooped after Brumation!

Postby brendajorde » Sun Mar 29, 2020 7:40 pm

Hello, my bearded dragon woke up from burmation after 9 weeks :shock: and he pooped out a huge long white looking poop and then 2 hrs later he had a small brown poop with liquid (he drank water when he woke up).
I was 100% sure his stomach was empty because he didn’t eat for 3 days before he went into burmation and relieved himself prior to going to sleep

Should I be worried that he desecrated after brumation?

Thank you, Brenda

Hello Brenda,

This is a somewhat common occurrence. His body stored fluids & after such a long sleep,
his system had to excrete them in a solid form. Did he drink any fluids while he was down
for brumation, at all?
How does he look, overall? After his stool size, I would definitely try to get him hydrated
now for a few days or so, before giving him much food. His digestive system will be sluggish
for a short period of time because his metabolism has been slown down awhile.

Let us know how he is doing.

Thanks for the quick reply Tracie,
My beardie had nothing to drink, in fact I turned off his heating and lighting and put towels over his tank. The room temp was kept to 70 degrees, so I know he was fine and in a deep sleep.

It does make sense what you are saying, that is what I was thinking...he looks great and did not lose much weight, actually he was a bit active, and I did give me a bath so he could drink water.
I've never had issues with him, Dracko is healthy!

I am happy to have found the website/forum..thanks again and will post update if need be.
