Strange Looking Beardie Poop

Postby Captainthebeardie » Sun Feb 28, 2021 12:18 pm

Hello,
I took my 5 month old beardie named Captain to the vet because lately the urate in his poop has been very runny, sometimes accompanied with a brownish liquid. Other times the poop almost looks bloody or really mucousy. When I took him to the vet I didn’t think about getting a fecal sample, but the vet assumed it might be parasites anyway. He gave me medicine to give to my beardie. After giving him the medicine for the amount of time he said, the urate hardly looked any better. My beardie acts perfectly normal and the vet says he looks perfectly healthy otherwise. I just want to know if it is something I should still worry about? Should I take him to the vet again but this time bring a fecal sample?
He has a reptisun 10.0 uvb, 150w heat bulb and his enclosure stays around 107F. Humidity stays around 20%. He has carpet for substrate. I feed him either crickets or BSFL along with a salad containing collard and mustard greens, squash, and sweet potato.[Click image to enlarge]

Reptisun 10.0 coil or tube fixture and where in the tank is it? Top of screen or inside the tank? The fecal test should of been done to test for parasites before just giving meds --- the poop in the last picture was taken after a while ? or was it a fresh pic? The end of it looks dried out that is why I am asking

It is the tube light and it is inside the tank. The poop in the picture that is on the carpet was relatively fresh in the morning, not sure how fresh the poop in the container was.

His poop looks completely fine. The soft urate and liquid is just excess liquid which means he's hydrated.
