Hello, my bearded dragon has been having some questionable urates. Most of the urates have been firm at first, but squishable. They felt a little powdery. But, they look fine when squished and I remember them feeling wet. They become one blob. That is how it was most of the time. Her second to last urate was just unformed and liquidy. But this urate seems to be worse than the other ones. It was with very liquidy poop. When I squished it, it felt powdery and kinda like it disintegrated. When it was squished you could see small chunks of urate. And it didn’t stay together. I think this one felt more powdery and looked more powdery than they were before. I was trying to fix the calcium to 3-4 times a week. But, I was going to try to do liquid calcium now to help. I also might need to try giving less for the day. I also changed the uvb recently to see if that would help with the urates. Is she allowed to have it get worse occasionally? Or does something else need to be changed?

Ok, I have a picture of this poop. Although I’m not sure if I took a good photo. I also wanted to add that the only thing I changed this week was I gave the liquid calcium on Monday. But, she didn’t have very much on Monday. I have some previous poops pictures From a couple of weeks ago as well.

The urare Was covered by poop. So I’m not sure if they will be useful photos.

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
