    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...

    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...

    Hello! I’m very new to the beardie world, this is my first one and I got him (I don’t actually know gender) as a Christmas gift and am not entirely sure if I was ready to take him on. Since I’ve gotten him (December 2021) he has had problems. I didn’t want to take him back to Petco though...

    Coccidia Round 2 with Albon

    My bearded dragon got results 30 days ago for 4+ coccidia. We did 5 days of Albon .07ml. Unfortunately during her recheck they found the same amount so nothing improved in those 30 days. They don't have ponazuril so we are doing Albon again .07ml but for 21 days. I'm really worried how harsh...

    Parasites- After Care

    Hey there! I have had my beardie for about 5-6 months now. I took him to his first vet visit and was finally able to bring back a fecal sample, and he has two types of parasites. Long story short I want to be sure everything is good for him so that he doesn’t contract them again soon, and that I...

    Chirpless crickets...parasites??

    I just bought some adult crickets from Petco and was surprised at how quiet they are... literally, no noise and it's been hours. I briefly read something about how it can be a sign they have a parasite. Apparently the parasite can control the crickets somehow. Has anyone had an experience with...
