Question
My bearded Dragon has not been eating much lately . She acts normal but stool. But no stool only liquid and a little yellow . She was eating plenty of crickets and some greens . She is 3 and she shed recently . Should I be worried. She still has lots of energy and looks good.

Answer
Hello,

I would need more info really.

Has she been faecal tested? You can do this at reptiland.co.uk
Is she keot alone?
Ever laid?
Possibility of impactions?
Is she straining?

You need to watch her weight, especially body condition and if you think that she has list some then ideally get her to the vets.
Baths daily at the rifght temp, not too warm! Could help her pass any faecal material.

Ideally, dont sit and watch her, get her checked over by an exotic vet.

Regards

Reptiles
