Brownish substance between urate and poop

So I just noticed the attached brown substance between the urate and poop. I haven’t noticed this before. Should I be concerned?

my bearded dragon does have an already scheduled vet appointment tomorrow for her yearly check-up. I also just now took the fecal portion to her vet for an already scheduled test.

I get a little anxious so I figured I would post here to try and get some insight before tomorrow.

Sweet potato or carrots? Lol the poop is well formed and plenty hydrated so you must be doing something right!
I wish my dragon would eat vegetables that aren’t green. I have tired so many times with a variety, she just refuses lol. Collard greens or nothing for her.

Her dubia roaches get a healthy diet of different vegetables altering each day. One of which is sweet potatoes. She has only ate them once this week though.

I did see other post where it could be excess calcium. She is almost a year old (next month) and I dust her insects, not salad, 5 meals/times a week (3 with d3). I hope it’s not excess calcium, I would feel horrible if I am over doing it.

Not sure about the calcium but if you’re uvb lighting is on point I would use calcium without d3 but that’s just me. If you’re dubias ate sweet potatoes they will make that color in your dragon lbs poop.

Mine is 4 and half and I’ve played tough love so many times with him and only feed him greens and veggies and he knows I won’t last very long with not feeding him bugs lol. The funny thing is I still make him and my blue tongue skink a greens and veggie chop every week and neither one of them ever eat it but I keep making it? Slave to my reptiles lol.

Yes slaves and I have to go to counseling every week to deal with all the stress and anxiety and worrying about my reptiles every little behavior lol 😂. Maybe I only need it once a month now I’ve grown a lot with not worrying so much!

It’s how we show we care, I’m an animal person I’ve got to many to count but with most of them I just feed them and don’t worry about a thing? But for some reason with the reptiles I worry like crazy. I don’t worry about my kids as much as my dragons?

Did you ever figure out if this was something to be concerned about? My beardie has a very similar looking poop and I’m a little worried!

I just set Swordtail's timer for his bath and paused it so I could actually fill his soaking bowl up and he crawled over my phone and canceled the timer 🤣
Mirage came out of brumation on April 26. He was doing great. On May 2 he started acting funny. We just redid his tank, and he keeps going into one of his hides. He just lays there. He shows no intrest in food. HELP!
