Irregular BM?

40 gallon tank, reptisun 10.0 changed every 6 months, eats majority greens (collard, mustard, endive, escarole) with the occasional bug. Gets a bath at least once a week. I feel he hasn’t had a solid bm in a while. Is this normal?

I dont see any white urate meaning hes dehydrated - he should be getting insects 2-3 times per week - please rinse the greens before serving- your UVB where is it in the tank? top of screen or inside the tank?

is the UVB directly over the basking decor piece and what is the distance? For a T 5 it should be 12-15 inches -- if its a T 8 it should be 6-8 inches

He has a multi vitamin supplement, and the vet gave me probiotic to sprinkle on his food but he hasn’t had that in a long time. The multi vitamin a don’t give very often. For a while I was out of regular calcium so I’m wondering if it could be too much d3?

Hi there, when a well hydrated dragon poos on paper towels it looks like a lot of water because it's being absorbed and making the large ring. But if you're concerned you might have a fecal test done to check for parasites.
