It may be pinworms. They are a very common parasite in beardies. They can cause diarrhea and the soft slimey stool may be the first indication. A stool sample provided your vet will be sufficient for diagnosis. No need to take the animal in right away. If pinworms are the problem, an inexpensive wormer that is probably going to be fenbendazole based will be sold to you for application at home. If the stools get even softer and no internal parasites are identified, a change in diet may be called for. If that doesn’t work, a trip to the vet for your pet it is!
