    bearded dragon eating very little and pooping only small amounts

    Mochi was abandoned at a pet store with a worm problem (or so we where told) which he was treated for, and put up for sale. We decided to give him a new home in Feb of this year. Always eating with ferocity as a baby/young adult, and until about 3 weeks ago he began slowing down his eating. Now...

    Brumating with Pinworms?

    Hey so Xion stopped eating two days ago and won't leave her cave, she sleeps through the day (though sometimes she opens her eyes and gives me the stink eye) and I'm worried she's brumating. She's only 9 months old and her tank is nice and warm, but most concerningly she's currently being...

    Possible Parasites?

    I'm concerned about the appearance and odor of my beardie feces. I'm uncertain if her stool appears normal or if it may indicate a potential parasite issue. She looks healthy and has a good appetite, activity level, and stable weight, but the shape and smell of her feces worries me. Tank is in...

    Pinworms, should I clear her tank?

    So Xion has pinworms and her substrate is a sand/soil mix. Should I clear out her tank and just go with paper towels until it clears up? Her basking spot is also on top of a wooden structure, I'm wondering if that could also be a possible hotspot for re-transmission. It's a pain to clean too. I...

    Explosive Diarrhea?

    So Xion's always had this incredibly nasty smelling poop, though I didn't have anything to compare it to since I haven't had a beardie in a long time. Whenever she'd go you'd hear this LOUD WET FART as liquid would launch out behind her before the log. Well, it got worse. Now, every time it's...

    Runny/Mucosal Poop?

    Hi everyone, these are pictures of my beardie’s (6yrs, F) poop taken at 5 seperate days over the span of June-August). I’ve noticed that my beardie’s poop has been more watery than usual (there’s usually a bit of water surrounding the poop, but this is excessive). On a few days there has been a...

    Treating bearded dragon for parasites

    Hello, a couple weeks ago my bearded dragon was diagnosed with parasites and he is currently on two medications. He has been being medicated for about 2 weeks now and is still not eating and is not as active as he used to be. He just lays around in his cage with the occasional black beard (he...

    EDIT: I love you Nancy, R.I.P., she died of these health complications. Thread kept up in case anyone else in the future has similar issues and s searching, I sympathize with you. Nancy has suddenly fallen very ill within the past 3 days - little to no movement other than shifting positions...

    Lab results help Pinworms and Coccidia

    I got the following back from the faecal test for my dragon, would this count indicate treatment required? I used an online service that do not remotely prescribe at this time, so I would need to take this to an exotics vet. Thought I'd check here first, as I know all dragons have some...

    Update on Scarlett and poop/parasites

    Hi all! I posted a few days ago, but after a second dose of ponizural and some purée pumpkin and a bath (on advice from my vet), our girl finally pooped. It’s still not totally solid and it’s smaller than I’d think for not having pooped in a week. There also appears to be some blood! It’s...

    Care while treating parasites?

    My bearded dragon, Franklin, was taken to the vet with concerns of mouth rot. She was cleared for mouth rot and instead suggested to have early signs metabolic bone disease from her previous owners which caused a slight underbite. She has a lot of saliva buildup on the sides of her mouth. I...

    Parasite in Dubia Roaches?

    I just received some new Dubia roaches from Dubia.com, where I've been getting them the past several months. They seemed fine, although I didn't get a good look at them, but after I fed my beardie I noticed something on his tank wall. He's a messy eater so often guts end up around where he's...

    Failure to thrive, or ill-timed brumation?

    Hi, Montero is a 1.5-year-old female bearded dragon. Early November she tested positive for coccidia and received two rounds of oral antibiotics. A fecal sample after treatment tested negative for coccidia. I originally tested her for parasites because she was losing her appetite and sleeping...

    Possible Coccidia?

    My dragons are lethargic and only want bugs, my male is hiding all the time, my female doesn't want to really move, their poops are runny/don't look healthy, no blood, just extremely smelly and they seem to have trouble passing stools. I have to soak them to get them to go to the toilet for the...

    watery poop

    This is my dragon's poop. It has been watery like this his whole life, a little less when he was smaller. He is 5 months old. I do not know if this is normal since it has looked this way all the time but just making sure it isn't a parasite problem. He does not act sick and is very...

    Yellow beard, not eating

    Hi everyone, We bought this little “guy” (not actually sure of their sex) at the end of July. We think it got blocked up and stopped eating for about a week and had blood in their poop. We gave Beardo baby food and bathed him. It then started eating, very excitedly for a few days- 15-20 per day...
