Bearded dragon poo

Postby mrwhizzo » Mon Nov 23, 2020 9:11 am

Hi is my bearded dragons poo normal I have attached some photos. He is 4 and 1/4 years old his poo is squishy and when he poos water comes out as well. His poo doesn’t smell bad

Do you think he might have parasites because he haven’t been eating much recently

It's good that a little excess water is coming out with it. That indicates good hydration. Sometimes they are a bit messy. That isn't necessarily a sign of a problem. Could be related to diet or just general digestion issues if temporary. Older dragons don't need to eat a ton of food, so eating less isn't necessarily a problem as long as there aren't other signs of issue like lethargic behavior or weight loss. It's good to have a fecal sample checked for parasites at routine vet visits, but if there aren't any other signs of trouble, I wouldn't go out of the way for a check and just wait for an annual wellness visit.
