Hi everyone. My 1.5 year old beardie, female, has been passing this solid egg like stones for about a month. You can see they consist of a calcium looking substance. Today she passed 2, in total, she’s passed about 5 I️ want to say over the course of 6 weeks. I️ have taken her to the vet, she has had ultrasounds & x-rays done showing what looks to be follicles in her stomach (she has gained 20 grams since April alone)… today he took her blood to run some tests so I️ will hear more next week. Via the vet, I️ have cut her calcium intake down to just 1x a week instead of 2-3x.

She eats regularly, basks as usual, & sleeps well. She’s hydrated & on the outside, appears healthy. Her behavior has not changed much, if at all.

Wondering if anyone on here has seen this before or has any other information? Thanks! :)

Hello,

I would definitely love to see any bloodwork when you do receive it!
The vet thinks she has eggs/follicles? The clumps she has been laying do look somewhat like
hardened eggs or calcified eggs. Strange, most of the time they are shaped differently. Is she
acting ok, she looks pretty normal there in the picture.

Yes! He says they can see the follicles in the ultrasound & even took me back to look too & It’s like small round circles in her stomach. She is acting normal- she doesn’t run much when I️ let her out but she basks & eats no problem!

Hello,

Ok, did they say how much may be left for her to pass? How is she doing today?
I'm glad to hear she is acting normal & basking. She is eating normally right now?
Just keep an eye on her so if she starts acting differently you can get her back into
the vets.

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.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
