Does a Bearded Dragon need to Poop Before Brumating?

hello! my bearded dragon who is 10 months in like a week or two is going into brumation, and has basically stopped eating and hasn't eaten much for about a week, but at the same time, hasn't pooped in about the same amount of time. Should I make sure he poops before I fully let him brumate and turn off his lights? I've heard it can be pretty bad if they brumate on a full stomach.

It's probably a good idea to give him a chance to go beforehand if you can, but I haven't seen any negative effects of not going before brumation begins. I wouldn't worry about it all that much. He'll go if he needs to.

Hey! I'm very sorry for the late reply I thought I already had replied! he's in his last soak now before I turn off his lights, just to give him one more good chance to go. thanks for your reply and again I'm sorry for replying so late!

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!
