Diarrhea In my baby girl

Postby FraggleGirl » Thu Sep 17, 2020 11:51 am

My dragon, Mirabooka, is just over a year old and today wouldn't eat black soldier fly larva. Those are her favorite! I noticed she had eaten quite a few veggies this morning, so I assumed she was full.
Since she looked like she didn't feel well I took her out. She had a liquid poop. She ran to a different spot and Acted like she was trying to poo, but only brown watery stuff with a tinge of red came out. This happened 2 more times with less liquid each time.
I gave her a warm bath and she climbed my shoulder as usual. She is now pancaked on the warm side of her cage looking like she feels horrible, opening then closing her eyes.
I have given her zucchini the past several days in her salad, so I'm hoping it is diarrhea, but am starting to freak out! Her tummy isn't firm, it is nice and palpable, so I don't think it is a blockage. She was also given a double dose of Panicure about six mo ago as a precaution for worms after diarrhea and undigested food.
What should I do?

Usually a change in diet that includes a lot of squash can cause loose poos. Cut way back on them to see if that was the likely cause.

My baby was a little better today. She still doesn't want to eat so I did 1 cc of a 1:2 pedialyte twice, 3 cc of straight water and 4cc of 1:3 Oxbow Herbivore Critical twice. I also did a full cage clean and .2cc of Panicure. I'm monitoring her hind leg movements for signs of impaction and, while she has a LOT less energy, she is still using all 4 limbs equally. She had a warm bath and released a very small amount of urea.
She is slowly perking up so I'm hoping she just was dehydrated and low on nutrients from the diarrhea.
