Hello! My bearded dragon is having running bowel movements, and I'd like to get him a fecal test. I have no vets around me and was hoping to find an alternative.

No reliable ones that I know of that I've heard of anyone using.

No matter where you are, you likely have some type of vet near you. Any vet will have the capability of performing a fecal test, even a normal cat/dog type of vet. They might not have the expertise to treat the infection, but you could call around and ask if any would be willing to take in a fecal sample and give you a count. From there, we can help you with what needs to be done treatment wise.

Or, if this is going to be an ongoing issue for you, you might look into investing in your own equipment to do your own fecal exams.

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
