    I'm pretty sure my 20 year old corn is constipated. He's very swollen for about 15cm until his bum and he's been like this for 2/3 weeks. He is also not eating. He hasn't eaten for about a month. I've been bathing him in lukewarm water but he really doesn't like it so I only do it for a few...

    Ok, I made an account, just so I could ask this question. I've seen a few posts, but I thought I'd post one specific to my Stormy. I've had him a week and he hasn't pooped once in that time. Here are the specifics I've seen people usually ask about. He's a three year old Leopard Gecko. He was...

    Before anyone says it... bane is booked into the vets, but they can't see him until friday! Bane the red tegu is constipated, I've had him for a week, I don't know how long he has been prior to me having him. The day after we got him, he passed a small poo which was solid. Through the week...

    My 9 month old baby bull x pine snake hasn't been pooing as he should lately. I've made a few threads about it and ascertained temps etc are all as they should be. I figured he was just constipated so I gave him warm baths etc and he eventually poo'd. I didn't feed him again for about a...

    My Royal Loki hasn't pooped in a long time, almost two and a half months, and even with a visit and instructions from the vet he hasn't had a bowel movement. The vet suggested giving him a warm soak for about ten minutes every night and that hasn't shown any results. He's about half a year old...

    I have a pastel royal named Loki. He's about three months old, and almost exactly 2 feet long. I'm not sure of his weight, I don't have a scale for him. It's been over a month since he had a real bowel movement, and this point he's had 4 or 5 rat pups, and his only bowel movement, a couple weeks...

    Hi have recently bought a make chameleon. He was bought off a private seller. In his viv he had wood chips and soil. I read against this but I asked the fella and he had never had a problem. I noticed he was eating it a couple of days ago and immediately removed it and replaces with towel. He...

    Wonder if anyone out there can shed a little light on this? Got our big girly Royal out this evening, only to find the lower half of her underside is tinged quite a deep pink, and some of her belly scales are outlined a reddish colour. The pink colouration becomes more apparent towards her tail...

    I got my yearling GTP out for a bit of handling today to discover it was looking pretty swollen towards the tail area. I've had it for four weeks and it hasn't defecated so I was getting worried. The swollen area felt like it was full of fluid. I gently felt along it's belly for any blockage and...

    My leopard gecko hasn't pood for three days now, and I've given her a warm bath on two days and still nothing. I'm almost certain she needs to go but can't as I've seen her in her "poo corner" lifting up her back legs in a way she does when she poos, which is why I'm posting this and not waiting...

    Our beardie has not been himself for a little while now. He's been sleeping most of the day, off his food etc. It occured to me last week that he's not pooped for a while, if fact I couldn't remember the last time he had 'gone' :help: Feeling immensely guilty, I started giving him warm baths...
