    HiI think that my horsfeld has constipation as he hasn't done a poo in a couple of weeks now and he hasn't passed any urates in that time either although I think that he is still weeing in his bath. He is still eating a small amount of his food everyday but nothing is coming out the other end...

He is ussualy really active but latly he has not been moving much and while I first thought it was because he was about to shed I noticed that he is a bit swollen by hit vent. He would try to go to the bathroom...

    Update from this thread - https://www.reptileforums.co.uk/forums/snakes/1258741-eggbound-cali.html Lil Nipper was slowly passing the poo blockage, but was floppy around the area of the blockage. I was advised to offer him a fuzzy which he ate on Thursday. On Friday I had to go out of the...

    Hello everybody :) I guess the title is pretty self explanatory - one of my corn snakes has had a strange lump for a couple of weeks now, which seems to have gotten larger since his last feed. Since it's grown I've temporarily postponed his feeding but as far as I can see it hasn't gotten...

    Hello everyone, I recently got a rescue beardie from my local Herpetological Society and we soon came to realise that he was not in very good health. He has a cut on his back left foot and one of his toes is almost black, he hasn't pooed in the week we have had him and won't touch any food...

    Hey Guys, I've got a rather poorly Crestie (Sprite) who's been rather fussy with his food. We think we've got it sorted now with live food but the problem is he doesn't seem to be pooing so we're a bit stumped. Is there any good and effective ways to help speed along the natural process?!? :lol2:

    My male leopard gecko (Max) has been constipated for just over a week, so every day I've given him a shallow warm 'bath' to help. Yesterday we had a breakthrough and Max was able to pass a small amount of excrement but something else came out and I'm not entirely sure what it was. The only way...

    Ive got a 9 month old bull x pine snake who has been a little bit off his food lately. I think the reason is because he's constipated. He ate 3 fuzzies about 12 days ago and pooed once but still seemed to have a lump in his belly about 2 thirds of the way down his body I put him in a warm...

    Hi guys. One of my new little corn snakes has developed a bump in the stomach. Around her middle, towards the back of the stomach, but before the gut I'd estimate (about where the just-eaten-bump is after you feed). I'd say it felt about the size of a peanut and rather hard. I fed her sunday...

    Hi Has anyone any suggestions on how to make my Beardie poo? He seems to be going longer and longer between going. He used to go every other day. I gave him a bath last week and he did go in that (it wasn't pretty) It's now a week since then and I gave him a bath yesterday but it didn't...

    Hi all, My bro-in-law bought a young (2-3mths ish) Leo in early Sept on my advice (I've had Eddie for a year now!). Settled in fine and ate well (locusts and mealies). However, in the last few days, it had stopped eating altogether and become sluggish. I asked for a pic of the underside and...

    Last week I took home 10 week old George, a leopard gecko. He was eating fine and really enjoying his hunting ways. All was good. However, the past two days he has had a very low appetite and I've also noticed he hasn't been to the toilet. The store I purchased him from sold me a chip style...

    My little Boa looks like he s constipated bit lumpy around the back end. I've heard soaking him in warm water might help? Any other suggestions before a visit to the vets? Also it's been about a month since he went.

    My kingsnake ate whilst shedding (i didn't know or i wouldn't have fed her until after) and then bedame really bloated. I could see her vent was swollen about 5 days later. I put her in water and she defecated (alot). Is this normal when a snake is shedding? To have these digestive problems?
