My bearded dragon has a bit of an off white urate. It is like a light cream color. Is this normal. His poop is also diarrhea, but the vet thinks that is from the laxatives he was having since he was just constipated. When I clean the poop, the extra liquid stains the paper towel light yellow. Is this a normal colored urate?

Hello,

That does happen. Sometimes they don't pass urates just fluids/water so that is no problem at
all. Hopefully his urates will continue to normalize. It sounds like he will be just fine! Is he still
eating a lot too?

Yes. He actually wanted greens with out butternut squash today. So, I think he is doing better. There are heated. I can’t see how formed everything is because he keeps smushing it.

Hello,

That's great, if he is wanting his greens & squash, it sounds like he is doing much better.
Give him some time, but he should get back to normal pretty soon.

If that is the bottom of your tank I recommend you get rid of the screen he's going to get his nails caught in it
That is not he bottom of the tank. I took the picture from an angle. He has a mesh top. His has a mat for his substrate. That why his nails wouldn’t get caught in carpet.

Hello,

Let us know how he is doing. I hope he continues to improve for you. Feel free to post more
pictures when you would like.

Yesterday he had a big urate, but only a little poop. Then, 2 more poops that were urate. Today, he didn’t want plain greens again. But, he did want them with squash. I’m hoping he will have some later. Can’t find a poop yet.

All of a sudden today he looks tired and he keeps opening and closing his eyes. He dropped them and put them back up a couple of times. He suddenly stopped pooping even though he had diarrhea for the past two weeks. He doesn’t want greens. He has wanted a couple of crickets.

I took him to the vet. The vet said it is probably from all of the laxatives and diarrhea and constipation. Said to give him till Monday to see if he gets better. His eyes looked sunken. Doctor said he could be depressed from all the things going on to his stomach

sunken eyes are either a sign of dehydration, vitamin related problems, or genetics. Depression won’t cause droopy eyes.

The first three photos are from today. At certain angles his eyes look like the third picture. The fourth photo is from a little while ago. Do his eyes look sunken?

This was his poop today. He didn’t run around as much to have it like he normally does. Does it look ok?

Hello,

That stool looks pretty normal, yes. I do agree that they can be tired or sluggish if they have been
through an ordeal involving stomach distress. It may take him a little bit of time to get back to normal.
I don't think that his eyes look sunken per say, no. Were the urates pictured above, hard or somewhat
soft?

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
