Blood in poop

My older (9y) male bearded dragon just pooped with a large amount of viscous blood and I'm not sure what to do. I just got back from being gone for a week so someone else was taking care of him, but nothing he ate should cause any poop color like this. I'm worried sick and don't know when I could take him in. He doesn't have anything around his cloaca that would make me think it's a prolapse and there are no behavioral changes. He did have a black beard a bit earlier but that isn't too abnormal for him considering the time/his temperament. I'm very very worried and any advice at all would be helpful, he's so important to me and I want to do anything I can to help him.

I wish it was but the liquid is definitely blood based on how it cloted up and separated. He also didn’t eat any blueberries while I was gone.

That is concerning. Do you know what foods he took in while you were gone?
It is hard to tell but his eyes look like they are a bit puffy, is that correct? If they are it's possible
he is having renal issues. Can you get him to the vets on Monday?

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
