Yea that's been posted before As she already stated you want him off spinach.
You should change their diet, too much fruit isn't good for them.
I feed my guy mustard and collard greens along with some mixed in veggies and then his supers, and sometimes crickets. Fruits are on weekends usually, small amount.
I'm not sure about the fat part...I don't believe so, but I'd suggest taking a fecal sample to the vet, they may be willing to do it (mine was $25 for my leo) without the $63 for charging you to go to the vet to check your beardie out.
What about the possibility of a fungal/yeast infection? Is that even possible? I don't know jack about beardies but I know that with other animals when they get skin infections like this they smell to high heaven.
are you smelling him inside his tank? cause beardies poop is potent to say the least. if he's in a clean enclosure, and you clean his poop regularly, the beardie itself shouldn't have a poop smell. but then again, ive never sniffed my beardies so maybe they do stink...
One of my wife's stunk a couple of times, but after spending a ton of time trying to figure out what might be wrong with them, I realized that she just had been so busy at work that she hadn't cleaned out his enclosure in about a week and a half, and the lil bugger had pooped in his favorite sleeping spot, and had laid in it.
It was a pain(well, not really a pain, just irritating that I had to clean out my wife's enclosures in addition to mine...hahaha), but the smell went away within 24 hours after I cleaned out his cage.
Shawn, their poop is deadly! That's why I asked what substrate because if he was on sand maybe it was keeping it in. You should smell yours though, they do have a 'smell' to them. Wonder if leos do...hmmm
I clean them pretty religiously. I have daily gecko time where I clean and feed everyone and poop doesn't stick around for more than 1 day because it gets tooo smelly for me XD. I got him a vet apointment for tomorrow so we'll have to wait and see XD
one thing to check too is that he maybe hasn't stepped in poo... Ryuu stepped in some of hers once and it got between her toes... OMG was that gross... not to mention hard to clean... I have never seen her with a full black beard until momma (me) got in there with an old soft toothbrush and scrubbed her feet....
I'm not sure what puffyness is Maybe while you're there ask about that. If he's looking different than normal, yes I would mention it. But I don't know if that has to do with parasites...as I am not a vet.
