Hiding Over Two Weeks - Brumating or Sick?

Hiccup he is 5 and Blaze is 4
So I think we figured out the problem. We took him outside today and let him bask in the sun for about 10 minutes until he warmed up and then gave him a bath and he pooped!!!

Now, he really had to push, he pushed hard about 3 times until poop started coming out. This is not normal for him at all, usually it slides right out (gross I know lol).

One thing to note is that his urate was about 1.5 inches long and hard. Usually its soft and pliable. So this tells me he was dehydrated? I'm assuming this dehydration took place when he "brumated" for a few weeks without eating or drinking.

The other question I had for you all is about roaches. I've been feeding him about 1-2 LARGE fully grown roaches daily. Could this have impacted him slightly? Should I just feed him the smaller roaches?

Anyway, I am glad he pooped and now I am just trying not to repeat whatever issue caused it initially.
He should be able to handle large roaches---- start giving him water either spray the head and let it drip off his nose - or eye dropper is good as well --- offer him water 2-3 times a week and see if he drinks-

Wow I haven't logged in for years. Hi!
So to any reading this, how on earth do I post a thread 😅 New here, possibly too old for this

Just Hazel in a filter I need so not posting on forums.

I have questions about bubbles on our bearded dragons eye.

So he’s gotten bubbles on his eye. We wiped them off and it’s only been twice in the last few weeks. Should we be concerned? No coughing or congestion. He’s very hungry and sleeps well. He’s 8-9 month range. His humidity is 30-40 day time and as high as 50-55 at night to early morning.
Should we be concerned?
