Constipation!!!

Hey guys my Amber hasn't pooped in about 2 weeks or so and she is eating solid foods but only hornworms and butter worms. The vet advised not to give them to her EVERY day and watch her weight (my scale sucks) so I will feed her them every 3 days. I'm hoping due to not eating everyday it's why she hasn't pooped I just know the last 2 days she has been lethargic sleeping most of the day. Could this be constipation or just a change in the season ie spring? Prior to those 2 days she has come out and bask on her hides/ramps under the UVB her enclosure is a bit warmer so she doesn't exactly bask under her heat lamp much. She has a vet appointment for a checkup and I look to address the no pooping phase to my vet get a weigh in explain her behavior etc

Note: Today im gonna feed her and have her out for 30mins or so just to clean her enclosure and rearrange a bit

You can give a tiny bit of olive only like drop or two. The two times our girl was impacted we did this and a tiny bit of pumpkin herber baby food. Organic non sweetened prune juice works well too. I live in Arkansas so the seasons change hard here which has our girls basking and eating real weird at the moment. As far as the impaction goes try and give her something like this. Warm bath few hours afterwards.

I'll keep that in mind TY I had her out a little bit ago in the sun it was around 60-65 but felt around 70 but windy. I live in Massachusetts so we have had our 40 cold and rainy then 70-75 the next day weird this time of year. I will get the olive oil and I think I have fresh jarred baby food still I just hate when she doesn't go. When she was around 8 month she had to be "stimulated" to go to the bathroom meaning probed thankfully she got past that but it may of come back. Can't wait for the HOT weather to come so I can get my girls out and get that much needed natural UVB!!!!

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
