Peppuh had slight pink on his urate so we brought him to vet. They mentioned that he needs to be dewormed so Peppuh was dewormed. But his urate still had pinkish color through out the week. We sent more photos to the vet and they said to wait it out.

2 weeks later, this is how i found peppuh’s poop to look like. It is very worrying cos it looks progressively red-er and it even has pink redish spots.

We are not sure on what to do and is this really bad? Do we wait out or go to the vet again?

would need advice or help from anyone who has experienced this before. Thank you!

Hi there,

That's not blood.

What does his daily diet look like?
Are you dusting with calcium powder or multivitamin powder? How often?
What bugs is he eating, and what are you gutloading the bugs with?

He eats 5-6 dubia roaches daily & his greens daily too.

The roaches are dusted with calcium powder.

Not sure what gutloading is. Could you share more? :)

Everyday? Calcium + vitamins or just calcium?


Gutloading is what you feed your insects prior to feeding the insects to your dragon, in an effort to make the bugs more "nutritious".
Basically, what do you feed your insects, if you do.

-Brandon
Everyday calcium + d3

I only feed my roaches with oatmeal as it comes with that when i buy them.

That is most likely going to be your problem.

Over-supplementation often causes that color in the urates. Cut back to calcium only 3x a week and see if the urate clears up. Might take a week or so to see a change. Make sure your dragon is staying well hydrated too.

Sometimes specific foods being fed to feeder insects can discolor the urate like that too, which is why I asked.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
