Very large runny stool with bad smell.

Postby BeakerARand19 » Fri Jul 10, 2020 10:41 am

Hello, my bearded dragon beaker has been very lazy recently he just sits on his log all day and occasionally gets up to use the bathroom, eat or drink. He is kind of dark, but when I take him out to run he brightens right up and runs and explores everywhere. Thanks for any help.

Lighting:

1 100 watt high power UVA basking bulb.

1 CHE

1 T8 reptisun 10.0 hung beneath the screen

His temps are: 110 basking, 80 cool side. I use a temp gun to measure

The T 8 has no plastic cover over the bulb and is approx 6-8 inches from basking decor and is not over 6 months old???????? He needs to have a fecal done--- what are you feeding for a staple insect?

Yes, it has no cover, 7 inches from basking spot but is 6 months old. i do have a replacement on hand and will be changing it right now. his staple insect has been crickets due to a shortage of superworms. but as soon as i can get more i will.

Can you get dubias? If so get some-- bad smell could also mean parasites-- can you take a fecal in for testing? Drop it off and go from there-- but first change out UVB and see what happens
