Okay I think I’m going to lower the height of the net and also change the bulb out for now.

Still I’m not sure what caused the diarrhea.

He’s exploring right now, so he’s feeling good :) View attachment 71736

I’m going to give him some water since diarrhea can be dehydrating. Plus he keeps licking the air like he’s thirsty.
Interesting - not sure about that behavior- you can offer him water on his nose see if he will lick it- he looks good so pretty

Okay current solution:

I angled the UVB so it’s not so close to his basking spot, net moved too so the UVB isn’t as close to basking. Basking temp is still good. Also the back right corner now is shadier and I put his log back in that he likes (had to take it out before due to stitches). He can go there to get away from the light and heat. He can also get closer to the UVB using his big stick in the center of the cage.

I could also push the light back and he could use the net to get closer to UVB, the stick is about 11-13 inches away from it. Is that not close enough?

Still not sure if I need to replace the bulb with a new one. Any advice on that?

Still not sure how worries I should be about the diarrhea or what exactly caused it.

I am going w/ diet - the uvb is good - now let's watch his behavior- lay off the zucchini - try some raw shredded sweet potato - no keep your uvb bulb -; expiration on them is one year I recommend you change it out a month prior to

There is also one new behavioral thing.

He has has a few arm “scratches.” I don’t know how else to explain it but he basically just scratches randomly with one arm. He’s not scratching himself, it’s just a random quick movement, he’s only done it a few times. Usually it’s his front arm but today he did it with his back leg after eating. It doesn’t really seem like a “spasm” but it also seems a little odd to me. Any ideas?

The only idea I have is maybe the southern CA water is sensitive in his skin and irritating him just a little, I use dechlorinator for his bath water though.

If you can drink your water it's safe for him - what is he scratching? Himself?

No just the ground. I have a video I took right AFTER he did the “scratch scratch” behavior where he’s being weird. I’ll add it here, but he doesn’t actually do it in this video. He’s only done it 3-4 times.

Edit: it won’t let me post it lol.

I didn't see any scratching going on but backing up w/ the arm in the air-
like i said before:
“video I took right AFTER he did the ‘scratch scratch’ behavior”
and
“but he doesn’t actually do it in this video”

Today he’s been mostly hiding on shady side, no basking unless I put him there. Hiding under net. I was thinking maybe he was confused because the net was on the hot side before but it seems he just likes it over there. Before he was hiding under the net on the hot side.

He’s trying to nap… partial brumation maybe?

Hello,

He sure looks very nice there, how long is he? It is possible that he is trying to partially
brumate at this time of year. Some of them do brumate at crazy times of the year. Is he
eating very much right now?
Which tube bulb are you using, it looks like a T5? The tank is nice & bright!

He’s been eating a lot. He’s still working on gaining more weight back. It’s a 34inch 39W T5 HO 10.0 UVB.

VET DOESN’T WANT TO TREAT PINWORM

So Clyde is STILL having some runny poop with off-color urinate (photos attached). Most recent photo is where urinate looks the most pink/orange. Honestly the poop has been MUCH more solid but I am very worried about what looks like pink urinate because last time it was blood! Plus he is basking far less, spending more time in hide. Appetite is good though!

I just got back the records for 2 fecal samples from the vet, they had told me his poop came back “normal,” even though he had pinworm (which they did not tell me at first!). Here is the pinworm count and also something about “entamoeba coli-like”?

Plz advice. They told me treatment was not necessary because count was low and pinworms are “normal”??? I feel like my baby should just be fine having pinworms…? I’m worried they’re causing the discolored urinate too.

Buffy snuggling with my partner!!!
So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
