You can loosen a mild impaction by massaging your dragon’s belly and soaking him or her in warm water. Do this every day until s/he passes stool. It is important to not let him/her get dehydrated.
If this does not help after a week, contact your veterinarian.
Funny story: Nabooru got mild impaction after eating way too many roaches, the little piggy. I was freaking out because it partially paralyzed one of her hind legs, and I was afraid she had broken a bone or was developing MBD. One gigantic poo later, she was back to normal. Sometimes these things just take time and a calm approach.
