Beardie hasn’t pooped in 3 weeks!

Postby butter9763 » Fri Mar 15, 2019 7:38 pm

So I’m off at college and my parents have been caring for my beardie while I’m gone. I just got home for spring break and they informed me that my beardie hasn’t pooped in 3 weeks! So I immediately gave her a good soak in warm water and made sure she drank some water. Then I put her on the floor and she ran around like she usually does. She’s acting normal but I’m worried. My parents said she has been eating fine, she eats collard greens and veggies every day and superworms around 3-5 times a week. She’s got both a basking light and a UVB/UVA light in her 50 gallon tank.

She’s always been a scarce pooper going around once a week but she doesn’t usually take this long to go :( I don’t know what to do and I’m really worried about her.

You can try soaking her again, a small amount (a couple drops) of pure olive oil or pure pumpkin puree might help as well. Has she ever laid eggs? You may want to put a small dig box in with her just in case.

She has never laid eggs before. She’s about 1 1/2 years old idk how old they will lay at. I’ll soak her again and try the olive oil.

Update!

She had the biggest poop I’ve ever seen after her second soak.
