What should I do about bearded dragon constipation?


Answer by  helpfuldragon (11)

Bearded Dragon Constipation could be a sign of serious problems. Make an appointment with your vet for an x-ray and blood work as soon as possible to avoid potential harm to your pet.


Answer by  dante (24)

bearded dragons are omnivores that really require a balance diet. If your dragon is constipated, I strongly recommend getting him/her off of any leafy vegetables for a few days

i would suggest seeing a vet that specialized in bearded dragons as most need to be sedated to fix this problem

Get it to the vet right away those critters can't handle those things and usually constipation is caused by one of two things either it's diet isn't just right so the food it is eating is bothering it or the heat rock for digestion isn't set on the right temperature and the food isn't digesting properly.

Impaction is not a very serious problem. You should bathe him in lukewarm water and use a bath oil in the water to lubricate his system. Your local vet can completely cure the problem.

You should bathe your dragon in lukewarm water while rubbing his tummy and sides. Also, you can give him jarred baby food with a couple of drops of olive oil, this will help lubricate his digestive system. To completely cure his constipation you need to take him to a vet for treatment.
