Bearded dragon peeing/pooping blood.

Postby Ashleycaroline15 » Wed Oct 28, 2020 12:38 pm

My baby bearded dragon hasn't been eating for about a week. I tried crickets, Phoenix worms and wax worms, mustard greens, collard, kale, parsley as well as pellet/dried food from the pet store and she will not eat. She has a 150 w basking bulb that stays around 100 -105 degrees, 50 uvb, I've been giving her baths every other day for 15 minutes. I dust her crickets/veggies with calcium 3 times a week, yesterday and today she started peeing/pooping blood. It is also runny and has mucus...

Your surface temps sound right. Are you using the Zilla Desert 50 T8 UVB bulb? How far is it above the main basking area? Have you removed the clear plastic piece that comes with those fixtures? (That blocks UVB).

I would try offering some water by dripping it on her nose. Hydration may be helpful if she'll take it. If this keeps up though, It's a good idea to bring a sample to the vet to check for parasites. The common parasites can often be treated relatively easily if detected.
