Blood in beardie stool!

Postby Ofxbrian » Tue Sep 29, 2020 12:02 pm

So my bearded dragon who is about 9-10 months old had pooped and I saw blood in his stool or so I think? The bright red liquid or blood was there but it wasn’t too much. He’s still eating and moving around like a healthy Beardie but I’m worried if he’s developing some kind of issue. Any suggestion would help thanks!

Sometimes they strain a bit and it's not a huge deal. Worth keeping an eye on though. It's good that he is alert and active and still eating well. If you upload and post a photo if it happens again it may be helpful. Does the poop look dried out at all (or the urate chalky)? Or is there some water passing through along with the poop? That is a good indicator of dehydration which may cause some straining when they poop.
