That is concerning— what is your UVB fixture and what are your temperatures (how do you read them?) No coils please, temps should be between 95-110 degrees measured with a digital probe thermometer.

What is her diet and supplementation schedule? Do you have calcium with or without D3? Has she ever had a past with parasites or intestinal problems?

Any tips on what to do for her I been soaking her making sure lights r right that she is eating and drinking bit other then that not sure what else to do she does seem to be getting better in. Last week at first she won't moving around alot but now she is and climbing just the poop is concerning me. I did suspect her of having the calcium disease think it mbd not sure that what I was treating her for. Also her mouth says slightly open another reason why I thought she was struggling from mbd

Can you post a picture of her? A visual is always helpful.

Why are you misting her that often and how often are you giving baths? Bearded dragons originate from Australia were it's really dry and they require really low humidity....

Maybe try feeding some other bugs, like roaches, locusts or crickets as they are easyer to digest and nutrients wise more healthy then worms. How often and how much are you supplementing?

I was told to keep her dydrated and bump up water intake to help her out so that y the misting soaking 2 to 3 times a week and I started off on crickets but she didn't like them would just let them crawl on her.

Hiccup he is 6 and Blaze is 4
Brand and bulb of the uvb ? 75 watt uv is this a basking bulb I am assuming? Uvb should be a long tube fixture - no coils that would be in a dome -

Poor little one has MBD and is very unhealthy. You say the previous owner had no lights for her ? She may have an R.I as well. She needs proper uvb that Karrie mentioned ASAP.
Show a pic of the entire enclosure + lights as well. You probably need at least a 100 watt heat bulb to get the temps. up. You can stop the misting and soaking, warm bath once a week is O.K
The orange poo may be from the squash.
It's nice that you took her in and trying to help her. ! She is pretty sick.

🥺 I feels so sorry for this little one, she doesn't look too well.
You do need that UVB Karrie mentioned ASAP and maybe you could even supplement this by adding a mvb as a basking bulb. They put out a greenish light but also put out a lot more UVB than a tube. Downside is they concentrate it in one single spot. They can also be used to ray her with it for an hour or two per day additionaly.

Also put the UVB tube inside the tank if possible. Glas filters over 90% of UVB rays and mesh does still filter some...

Hello,

Oh my, poor girl, I hope you are able to get her well to a certain extent. I agree with AHBD, the orange
color is most likely due to the squash. She probably isn't used to much food! Are the urates soft?
Definitely try to get the UVB mounted inside of the tank, for a stronger UVB exposure for her.
Are you using a good calcium supplement for her also?
Keep us updated on her progress.

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
