    Parasites or diet? (Pics of poop)

    Wow, you make it sound much easier than the rest of the Internet! I'll have to ask my Flatmate though, see how she feels about having tubs of crickets in her house (I rent and she owns it). That frogs site doesn't ship to NZ, but I'll email them anyway and see. I asked in a NZ Facebook group...

    Parasites or diet? (Pics of poop)

    Wow thank you so much for this! That would be very very helpful if they ship to NZ! There's another place called insectdirect where I used to get my crickets, but they're the same price. As for breeding them I did some research awhile back and apparently you need heat for them, certain soil, a...

    Parasites or diet? (Pics of poop)

    She is 1 year 3 months old. No access to any of the worms you listed, or at least when I researched 6 months ago there wasn't. I'll check again I'll have a look around for dubias too, never heard of anyone in NZ with them but you never know. As for repashy, I had no idea it was so poor, all...

    Parasites or diet? (Pics of poop)

    Thanks for the quick reply! I'll get a fecal done on Tuesday if things don't change, I really hope it's dietary because I'd rather keep my $85 ! :P I'll try her on collard greens or rocket instead. As for live feeders, there's limited choice here in New Zealand so that's why I chose repashy. I...

    Parasites or diet? (Pics of poop)

    So my beardie's poops have been a bit watery for about a month now, but I didn't think anything of it because I've heard that greens and high water content foods can cause this. However today her poop was almost completely watery. She's a year old, her diet consists of repashy grub pie every...

    Calling all New Zealanders! Which UVB bulb do you use?

    So sorry about the late reply!! I ended up sticking with the Reptile One uvb bulb, as i havent had any issues with it in the past year of using these bulbs. My beardie hasn't been ill at all since i got her as a baby :) Good luck!!

    Beardie Issues

    Could be impacted if hes had no bowel movements for a long time. If he has lumps in his tummy you should monitor their size and position over a few days. A good way to check for impaction is to gently squeeze around his belly, index finger on his underside and thumb on his back (usually down the...

    Constant stress marks

    My baby dragon used to get that too, but what i noticed is if she's got stress marks but her back is also very dark, chances are she's going dark to absorb more heat. If her back isn't dark but she still has stress marks on her belly then there's something up. It could be hunger, a shed coming...

    Isn't shedding her tail

    Hey guys, my beardie Ramona is having trouble shedding her tail. I've given her warm baths and used a soft toothbrush on it but it won't shed! It didn't shed last time either and baths didn't help it, so I figured surely this time it would shed properly. But it hasn't and its the only part left...

    Calling all New Zealanders! Which UVB bulb do you use?

    Unfortunately it looks like they don't ship to New Zealand. How much does it cost to get shipped to Australia? I'll email him and ask if he can ship to NZ specially but I don't have high hopes. Thanks anyway though! Maybe I can get my cousins to forward it from aussie :) all the other reptile...

    Calling all New Zealanders! Which UVB bulb do you use?

    I posted this in the enclosure forum, but didn't get any replies so I'm reposting it here :) Hey everyone, :D Its come time for me to get a new UVB tube for my beardie, and I thought I'd ask the forums which one is recommended. Before anyone suggests the Reptisun 10.0 or the Arcadia 12%...

    Beardie's fall asleep every which way,I want pics!

    Ramona was getting stressed out seeing her reflection so I added little walls, except one minute later I hear scrabbling and she's fallen asleep in between the paper towel and the glass! Weirdo :lol:

    Calling all New Zealanders! Which UVB bulb do you use?

    Hey everyone, :D Its come time for me to get a new UVB tube for my beardie, and I thought I'd ask the forums which one is recommended. Before anyone suggests the Reptisun 10.0 or the Arcadia 12%, those are unavailable in New Zealand!! I'm currently using the Reptile One T8 18w 24in UVB...

    Impaction?

    Thanks. I did that and gave her a warm bath and a massage but no result. I took her to the vet because I was quite worried and it turns out she's eaten some stones (4mm wide). They're giving her medication and trying to help her pass them but its looking like she'll need surgery. I've been very...

    Impaction?

    My beardie has a lump on her belly on the lower left side just above her left leg. Its reasonably firm and closer to her front than her back. She's had it for two weeks now, she was pooping normally the first week, but the past week she stopped eating and pooping. Yesterday during her warm bath...

    Concerned for my new beardie's health

    Just an update: I now have a white basking bulb, digital thermometer with probe, and a log instead of my old basking rock. She's stopped walking on the back of her hands which is great! Ever since I took the plastic cover off my UVB reflector. However, my beardie still isn't eating and now she...

    Concerned for my new beardie's health

    Thanks for the quick replies! Unfortunately my beardie can jump a good few inches so keeping her off the wire cage will be a mission :0 but I shall try! In terms of feeding, I've tried her in a 30cm tank with the live crickets, and also a smaller lunchbox where they're in closer quarters, but...

    Concerned for my new beardie's health

    Hi guys! This is my first time posting, though I read through these forums alot. Be warned of the long post! I have a new beardie called Ramona (unknown gender as yet, but I call her a she), and she is my first reptile. I'm posting today because her health is not good, though I can't figure out...
