Hard urate?

Hello, my bearded dragon had a poop that was really watery and possibly a hard urate. And for the past couple of times, I thought it was a hard urate. I have been trying to fix it for about a week. But, I’m not sure how to tell if it is a hard urate or not. This poop was the most watery of her poops so far. I was told sometimes the diarrhea can be caused by a hard urate. The urate could be squished. It seemed slightly firm. And powdery. Is that a hard urate? And should it have been fixed by now? This is her second poop with the calcium adjusted.

That could be not sure I'll have others take a look here.

She pooped again today. I think the urate was good this time. But, the poop looked as watery as before. I’m thinking maybe it is too many greens causing the really watery poop. Because it was only this watery twice. Before it was mushy. And for the past week she was eating a lot of greens. So, I think I’ll try to fix that. Hopefully, that will make it better!

What are you feeding her? That's good that her urate looks better.

Mustard greens, crickets, flowers, and sometimes butternut squash when she doesn’t want her greens. So, I’m going to stop giving the butternut squash. And give a little more crickets. I also sometimes give her sweet potato for fiber. The flowers are also supposed to have fiber.

Yeah the squash would explain it. If you're not giving her sweet potato often then that shouldn't cause her to have runny poop. But the Squash has a lot of water in it which is good to keep them hydrated so sometimes the runny poop is good as long as it doesn't smell too bad and the urate is good(Correct me if I'm wrong if others see this).

Ok, thank you very much!!! I was giving sweet potato. Once a week. I’m not sure if that’s too much. Last week she ate a lot of sweet potato that day. Like maybe 7 small pieces. Around the size of a dime. So, I wasn’t sure if I should have taken a break with it or not. I took the poop to the vet recently. It came back negative for parasites. It don’t smell either.

That could also be it. Both are good for your dragon but a lot of water causing it to be runny like that.

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank

Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
