Possible parasites/GI issues? can't go to vet

Postby ChevreLune » Thu Apr 02, 2020 9:39 am

Hello, I have a beardie who's about a year old. Lately his bowel movements have been runny with a bit of pink in them. I'll add a picture the next time he goes. He's also been hiding in the shade more and taking naps during the day. No noticeable difference in his weight, and he's been eating just fine.

Info:
    100W UVA bulb and UVB hood
    80F cool side, 110F hot side
    Eats 10-15 medium crickets morning and night, plus veggies and sometimes fruit. occasionally eats Aqua Culture beardie trail mix. Calcium 5 days, vitamins 2 days

I would take him to a vet, but because of the lockdown, we can only take him if it's immediately life-threatening. Any advice would be appreciated!

I did manage to find a vet that does curbside appointments, so we're going there Monday. And here's a pic, sorry it's not that good, I didn't think to take one before sealing it up for the vet.

Looks like hes well hydrated --the UVB is a All in One? What kind brand and bulb and what wattage - how far from basking distance?
