Beardie not pooping

Beardie name(s)
Odie
Before I start, my basking temps and everything are all good and the tank is cozy for him, so no need to ask anything. It’s been about 2 weeks and he hasn’t pooped, I’ve given him olive oil, bathes, massaged his sides, let him run around to try to poop, anything and everything. He isn’t lethargic and is his normal vibrant self, but he hasn’t eaten in a week or pooped in 2 weeks. Any ideas or help??

How old is the dragon ? If he's a baby he should be eating 2-3 times per day- they will not eat if your husbandry is off

It is not uncommon for them not to poop for long periods of time- both of mine poop every 3 weeks or so - what kind of diet is he on? As long as his surface basking temps are what they need to be and your getting that w/ a digital probe thermometer he will go --- that is what starts digestion - and you have a good long tube fixture for a UVB -- coils are inadequate --- and the long tube fixture is correctly placed and distanced- this ALL plays a huge role in the health of the dragon -- eating will slow down in the winter as well - so I would get a weight on him now weigh in grams and keep track - if hes losing weight then he could have parasites or another health issue we dont know about - but he would also be showing other signs of parasites and health issues -

I appreciate the help but I have the right tank setup and bulbs as I stated, and he has had no prior issues and nothing has changed. Thank you for commenting and trying to help tho, I guess everything beardie is different and we’ll see if he poops sometime soon

You can try feeding him some plain canned pumpkin add a drop of olive oil and drop of honey- that will make him go
