Urgent new beardie owner help - is this poo normal?!

Postby MomNSonBeardieTeam » Sat Mar 16, 2019 11:03 am

Hi folks!

Our beardie just arrived yesterday and didn't eat much. She's eaten some better today (finally took some veg, not interested in the crickets) and then she just had this massive poo. This is my first beardie, therefore first time seeing her poop and I have no idea what the gigantic chunks are in the middle! Could she have been given a pinky mouse before she was shipped to tide her over for the 24 haul? I've emailed the breeder but no response yet and I'm just not sure if this is normal or abnormal and don't want to waste time if I need to get her to the vet.

Thank you for your quick response!
Shannon

Hi Shannon, it looks totally within the acceptable range of normal poo. :) If anything it may sow a bit of dehydration [ the urate which should be white is a bit off color ] but it's really nothing to worry about. Keep her hydrated + hopefully she'll settle right in, but it can take a few days , a week or a bit more. Any pics of your new baby + her set up ?

Hi there!

Thx! I heard from the breeder as well and she said it's all good. Glad to hear it from more than one source!

I'll post intro pics of her in the introduction part of the forum.

Thx a ton for your help!!!
