Hello! I got Hewg from a rehoming situation late May. Got him checked up at the vet, and he is overweight. She recommended only feeding bugs 2-3x a week and when i do only have it be 25% of his daily diet. We thought he wouldn't eat salad because we suspect he was mostly fed worms, but he loves salad and eats it like a champ. He ate a few dubia roaches in the first few weeks. Then he didn't want to. We'd try having him eat bug before salad, nope. Without calcium? Nope. We tried solider fly larva as well with the same techniques. He ate a few and became disinterested but still loves salad. We just tried the repashy gel and he did go after that at least. We started putting the calcium on his salad to make sure he gets what he needs. My question is, with him being 4 and overweight, does he absolutely need live insects if he's disinterested in them? Thank you for reading this far, any advice is appreciated.
