started getting diarrhea, is it parasites

Postby pistachio55 » Mon Jul 19, 2021 6:37 am

I've had my 2 month old beardie for almost 2 weeks. He had formed, healthy poop for the first week but this week he started having softer poops, basically diarrhea. Would his change in diet have a delayed effect and affect his poop the second week? Could it be that he's eating a lot of salad? I'm not sure if it's likely that it's parasites since his poop was normal when I got him? Any advice would help.

Basking temps ? How are you taking them? What are you feeding for salads? Veggies w/ a lot of water are going to cause a lot of runny stools -- what type of UVB are you using ? coil or a tube fixture-- after ruling all those out it could be parasites -- also possible relocation stress but we need to rule all the other things out first --

Thank you for your reply. He recently started having normal poops again so I think it was just because of a change in diet.
