Refusing to eat Cricket's only greens

Postby Startingpleasehelp » Mon Jan 20, 2020 6:29 pm

My 6 month beardie is refusing to eat crickets and only eats greens or super worms. I don't feed him super worms but I tested if he could. He breathes with his mouth open and breathes heavy he looks like a cat arching his back And he makes noises.( I don't know how to get pictures) I thought he was dehydrated so I Syringed Watered for 3 days but he still has the same symptoms. He is active when I play with him or when I get him out, no mucus, sleeps a lot, easily poops. We did recently moved into a new cage but he looks like he adapted well.

If hes not eating crickets I would get him some dubia roaches - they are better nutrition wise and easier to keep --- butter worms are good along w/ horn worms they are a hydrating worm and grow very fast so only order small amounts --
Its great that hes eating greens
you can also order BSFL from here order large and you do not need to dust them as they are calcium enriched

+1 to the suggestion to try dubias. They're a great feeder. So are BSFL.

I'm a little concerned about what you posted about the breathing, though. I don't know enough about dragon health to guess, but have you asked your vet about that? Labored breathing can't be good...
