Red in poop again?! Help needed!

I just gave my bearded dragon a bath and he pooped. The thing is in his poop there was some red in it again but it wasn’t really liquid like blood. There are images below of his poop and when I put him back in his enclosure. Lately, he has been resting under his hammock (on the cool side). Is this because of brumation? Also his poop there were some mucus stuff coating parts of it. I am really worried as on October the 21st he did a similar poop and when I posted it people said to cut back on his supplements so since then I have given him a break from them (except for a few days). So I don’t think it was because of his supplements. On the 2nd of November he done a poop in his bath that had purple in it. I also posted about this but didn’t get much help. After the purple poop when I put him in his enclosure he had some tremors which freaked me out. I just cleaned some of his decor by the way. Any advice will be greatly appreciated.

Hello,

That isn't blood, thankfully. This type of orangish tinted urate is relatively common.
What type of supplementation are you giving? Which UVB lighting do you have for him?
We can review your tank setup, if needed.
If the urate was hard, you can give some extra oral fluids to help with hydration.

The supplements I use are Pisces calcium, Pisces superfood and bee pollen. I use EXO TERRA Reptile Uvb150 Desert Bulb for his UVB light. I have heard that coils are no good, but it is hard to find UVB lights. I did not feel it however I don't think it was hard. By the way, would my bearded dragon be going through brumation as it is spring? Thanks so much for the reply.

Please get a Reptisun 10.0 T 5 UVB bulb-- or a Arcadia 12% 24 watt -- the poop I am going to have AHBD help here but I am thinking the UVB has something to do w/ the issues your having

The thing with those UVB lights is that they don't fit in the screw. Are there other UVB lights you would recommend that fit into this screw? Thanks for the advice

No coils ---- you want a long tube like one of these
24 watt w/ the 12% bulb Arcadia Reptile ProT5 UV-B Kit | reptile Light Fixtures | PetSmart
Zoo Med ReptiSun T5 HO High Output Terrarium Hood you need to change the bulb to this one 22" Zoo Med ReptiSun 10.0 UVB T5 HO High Output Fluorescent Bulb -
your dragon is basically getting NO UVB --- coils are a health hazard please get rid of it

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
