Hello! I haven't posted in a while! Chester has recently been having diarrhea for the past week and 1/2 and has definable 1 drop of blood after, I've checked for sperm plugs, changes of diet, lighting, etc but nothing seems to be adding up? he has loads of parasites when I first got him, it took around 4 months it get rid of!! but he was great after and acting normally, for the past week and a half I've been giving him hydration to make sure he doesn't get dehydrated, in getting a stool sample done soon, also his lighting is t5 12% UVB Arcadia 24" long fixture around 6 months old (changing it soon) he also lives in a 40-gallon tank at the moment, I'm upgrading to 120 gallon bioactive in around two weeks! and the basking bulb is 100-watt uva for his appetite, it is 2 months old aproxamently. Chester is 1 year and 1/2 old and I got him when he was 6 months, he's been growing a lot and shedding his head rn!

Sorry Chester is having some trouble. You are sure there is a bit of blood? Does this
happen every time he goes to the bathroom? Are his urates soft or hard?
If he is having loose stools then it is either something he is eating or he may have worms or
parasites that need to be treated.
I would consider getting a fecal done if possible. Do you have any probiotics that you could
get him started on?

hello Tracie,
chess stopped pooping for 4 days then pooped yesterday he has soft liquidy urates and I have two probiotics I have him on right now bee pollen powder, and bearded dragon probiotics. I'm very sure he has blood in his stool I'm 99.999% sure I have pictures if you want them uploaded, and I just realized I added in the little plastic log he had when he was full of parasites, but that was around 4-5 months ago?? can he get parasites from that? I am suspecting coccidia as the culprit tho. and I'm getting a fecal done soon

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
