Chalky white poop usually means that a beardie is dehydrated. String-like saliva, in chalky white poop, is a symptom of mild dehydration. Mild dehydration is super easy to fix. You should place him in a short 15-minute bath. Hope this helps!

I give her baths almost 3 times a week and she drinks the water a lot when bathing.

Wonder why she is dehydrated? Could she be under her heat lamp too much?

She generally poops and it's moist most of the time I'll give her a bath again

Maybe she is hydrated but it is something else. Do you mist her once a day?

i don't think dehydration is the issue with that much liquid present. careful with too many baths. it's not good for their scales and doesn't provide hydration if they are not drinking from it, which it sounds like chubbs is doing. the whole soaking up water through the skin or vent is a myth. she's been brumating until recently correct? it could be she just isn't eating much yet so there isn't much to come back out.

Ya she has just been going 1-2 times a day sometimes it's this color and then she will do this and then also poop normal.

She (Chubbs) pooped 2 times yesterday and once was a little watery then the other was a solid normal poop. I had a fecal sample for both my beardies just in case it's parasite related.

Amber poops fine she did have a watery poop a week ago but has pooped moist and slightly watery ever since which is normal since she had greens

I don't mist her she gets her water from greens when she isn't picky but mostly when I bathe her.

Hoping this is a fluke maybe she could be constipated since she has snacked on super worms? I know I also haven't gotten her up to speed with feeding since she has been brumating and I didn't wanna overload her belly with tons of bugs right away

If you suspect she's constipated you can always try a little non spiced canned pumpkin or baby food like sweet potato or squash.

Could be I know I got the labs back for both my beardies and they are parasite free so that's not the cause of this substance

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
Im needing some questions answered about my female beardeddragon, I honestly have no idea on age , she was a recuse, as ive had a couple in my life an have experience. So 9 weeks in , she earing well pooping well getting comfortable, then approx 3-4 days ago the digging started. So I got a dig box set up in her 75 g tank. Well within 2 hours she dropped an egg. Now only one egg an its been 10 hours.shouldiBworried
