Hard urate

Postby Mflav » Thu Oct 01, 2020 9:26 am

So my bearded dragon is still having hard urate. I mist him a few times a day and also soak him at least once a week. He doesn’t drink water but also does not get hydration from veggies as he does not really eat them. He is a year and a half old and eats Dubia roaches I try to get him a few hornworms a week for the hydration. Any advice

Hello,

Have you reviewed your nutrition & supplementation here with us?
I would recommend cutting back on his supplementation for a few days & trying to
get oral fluids into him also. Since he is not keen on greens/veggies right now, keep
trying with those but you can also get some squash & sweet potato baby food to give
to him or mix up some greens slurries for hydration.
How many insects on average, does he eat weekly?

He eats about six dubias twice a week Every now and again he will eat peas I will try doing the baby food other than that he seems to be doing great

Hello,

That is excellent he is doing so well! Yes, definitely try some baby food to help with the
hydration, it usually helps out.
