Question about hydration poop and the smell

Hey guys I give my Amber or well both beardies Escarole Kale collard greens and butternut squash 2 times a day.

My Chubbs well she was just having eggs so that's another story but my Amber hasn't yet thankfully. Anyways my Amber has had runny smelly poop the last 3-4 times I was thinking it's runny due to the greens and squash so I have held off on the squash.

It's not runny enough as in like diarrhea she can hold it all day or even 2 days but when I pop her out of her enclosure she will run around bob look around then a good 4-5 mins later she will poop which is her normal thing.

What's the best way to firm up her poop? I give both beardies the same food and Chubbs isn't running very much like Amber's though Amber does eat a boat load more greens than Chubbs which Amber has always been that way.

Should I see what I can do and limit the greens and squash? I was gonna get a fecal sample and see if they can explain the smell.

Note: I wash ALL their food before I feed them if I feed them 50 times a day I would wash their food EVERY single time

The washing is good, it helps hydrate but it also washes away chemicals, mud, and burd poop.
If it smells really bad I'd drop a sample with the vet.

Think I may do that I was hoping it was a fluke but it's consistent I just know she has a lot of excess water
Man it's better safe than sorry, I promise ya. If you take it in and results are good then it just a few wasted bucks, but if there is an issue your on top of it straight away. I'm regretting not getting Sweet Pea checked out more throughly so bad. There still might not have been anything to do, but I wonder what it none stop.

Definitely worth the money just to be safe and sound though I always got kick back for it "your just wasting your money and time with vet visits when nothing is wrong" but it's peace of mind for me

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
