My bearded dragon hasn’t pooped in over a week. He won’t eat anything but a couple meal worms. He’s acting normal though running around find letting me pick him up. He don’t seem to be in any pain just won’t eat or poo. I don’t feel any kind of bumps on his back or stomach area. He not lethargic or anything. Any idea of what i can do? Vets are more the 2 hours away i’m willing to go but does anyone know anything on maybe why he’s doing thisV

Feed him some baby food pumpkin till he poops add a drop of olive oil and drop of honey- make sure he stays hydrated - meal worms are for treats only how old is the dragon

Ok we need him to start eating some salads - what have you tried to get him to eat salads- yes feed him baby food pumpkin a drop of raw unfiltered honey and olive oil- stop w/ the meal worms- how is he getting water?

He was getting water by eating his salads but he stopped eating so i don’t think he’s getting any water from anything cause he won’t eat anything at all

Please drop water on his nose so he licks keep dropping till he stops or moves away - he needs water to keep his bowels moving

I’ve been doing that and he’ll lick it off only a little and than stops
Ok when he poops after eating the pumpkin watch and see if he has white urate and if it's chalky looking or dried out - same w/ the dark poop see if it's dried out-

At this point; he could be headed into a semi-hibernation-like state.
They do it first at about a year old.

Typically they start at 1Y.O but they can start @ 10 mos. old.

You said he's turning 1 in October.
Def. get him a bowel movement before brumation.


Then they do it about once a year.

Hello,

Sometimes, it just takes awhile! Reptiles have slower digestive systems so keep at it with feeding
him softer foods like the pumpkin, butternut squash & sugar free applesauce.
Be sure his basking temperatures are optimal, too for him.

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.
