Baby refusing to eat

Postby jazyman » Fri Oct 18, 2019 4:48 pm

My baby beardie (around 3 months of age) has been refusing to eat for the past couple of days. He’s been eating great the last few weeks, but starting the day before yesterday, he hasn’t wanted to eat. I’ve fed him as much as he will eat, which is 6 crickets a day. Today he only ate around 6 and was refusing to eat. He looks fine, is hydrated well, and has healthy poops and urates. He has even been refusing veggies, which he loves to eat. I don’t know what is wrong with him.

Hi there,

Is he in the process of shedding? or about to shed? A lot of times their appetites drop when they go through shedding as it's a seemingly annoying process for them.

Could you post a picture of your dragon and your setup?

We could go over your husbandry with you if you'd like. That would help rule out any husbandry issues that might be causing the low appetite.

Follow along with all my beardies. Check out my thread here!: Claud's Crew
P.S. We have lots of pictures ;)
