Is it ungodly smelly? If so take a sample in to a vet and have a fecal done, it could be parasites. Don't let the vet do an enama, it's insanely dangerous. Collect it yourself and take it in within 24 hours.
If it isn't smelly your dragon could just be well hydrated. If they are really good on hydration the poop can be watery. If it presists take a fecal in to the vet.

Hello,

That can be normal, yes but as suggested, if that does continue I would recommend getting
a fecal done, too just to be sure he doesn't have worms or parasites causing the issues.

I use the shed ease on Zen when he has a particularly hard shed, it seens to help.
I don't recommend daily baths, it can dry out their skin, but also if they don't get completely dry it could cause bacteria or fungus to start in their scales.

Hiccup he is 6 and Blaze is 4
Also is it a good idea to bathe them daily when shedding to help get the dead skin off?
No daily baths please-- let the dragons shed do it's thing- just make sure he has something to rub on in the tank-- after the shed gets to a crackly dry peely shed take a soft baby toothbrush and gently brush him -- mist him first this will pull the loose stuff off

Hello,

How is the shedding process coming along for him? I hope it's progressing for him, so he starts
to feel better!

He was looking pretty rough last night, I need to go check on him now this morning.

Okay thanks I thought that might not be a good idea.
Is a medium toothbrush good enough for brushing them?

Just brush the underside of your arm, anything that isn't uncomfortable for you should be ok for them. 🙂

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?
