Dry infrequent poo

Postby Suzle87 » Mon Mar 11, 2019 5:47 am

Hi all, getting concerned, vens not really passed a bowel movement in over 2 wks, there have been two but they are small and dry looking. Any ideas? He’s eating fine, passing urate fine, is a bit of a misery but is due to she’d so tends to be like that then. I’ve been trying to get in with the specialist vets today but no joy, a non specialist who has seen some reptiles is happy to see him this afternoon then I’m going to book in with specialist later in the week but any advice is urgently requested on this one, I’m quite worried.
As you may have also seen on a previous post, I have also noted a few early RI signs so am wondering if the two are linked?

Well, going to the vets gave ven the fear enough for him to projectile poop into the vets face when he lifted his tail to check his vent! He seems to think he was just a little constipated and has give me some electrolyte stuff to give him if it happens again, also listened to his chest and said it sounds fine and that it’s refreshing to see an overcautious reptile owner as too many times he’s seen people let them get pretty ill before coming in, so I recon the lesson is if you’re concerned it’s always best to check and don’t worry about wasting vets time because they’d prefer to see you and nothing be wrong than not see you and you to have a poorly animal who could use their help x
