Is this a worm?

Postby Poodlin » Tue Sep 29, 2020 2:00 pm

This is going to be quick. The nearest vet is over 2 hours away and only open for emergencies and to get prescriptions. They don’t consider worms an emergency. So this is a fresh poop my bearded dragon has left. Is this a worm? If so, are there any natural foods I can give him for it? The lady at the petstore did give me brown worm powder that goes on his veggies. How much do I give him?
Thanks

That just looks like discoloration in the urate. That happens from time to time. I'm not sure of the cause in each case, but it isn't necessarily a problem at all. Has the poop been there a while before the photo was taken? The urate looks pretty dry/chalky which could indicate dehydration.

It was there for about an hour. When I cleaned it after getting this picture it was soft. I think my heat light dries the poop out quickly, but it was soft. It wasn’t chalky. The thing I thought was a worm is the long thing. I don’t know though. My brother said it looks like the yellow part of a dandelion that he fed him yesterday. I will check his poop tomorrow to see if there is anything in it.

It happens to Rex as well, he had a big poop today and at the end of a white urate there is sometimes a little weird yellowish brown thing, I mean it was inside of him so I don't think it'll be white as silk, I wouldn't worry to much
