My beardie is a stubborn little tot and refuses any way I try to give her water, I’ve been dipping her feeders in water so their is drops of water on them when I give it to her, will that help rehydrate her? Is that an okay way to do it? I’ve tried letting her soak and move the water around, I’ve tried dropping it on her snout. Does anyone have any advice?

If shes not drinking shes not thirsty- does she eat salads - rinse the salads before serving and she will get moisture thru them --- watch the white urate it needs to be formed white and moist - not dried out and chalky looking -- poop dark formed and moist -- dragons dont drink very often - make sure your gut loading the insects your feeding w/ water crystals or cubes and good healthy food like squash carrots and insect food -- this too will help -

Another thing you can try is using an eyedropper to drop it on there snout, add in just a little none citrus fruit punch to give it flavor(or any none citrus juice they like the flavor of, you just have to experiment to find what they like), i also mix liquid calcium in mine, but you don't have to. If you use juice of any kind i recommend you use a damp/wet paper towel or wash cloth to wipe away any that gets in thier beard or runs down their belly, no need in taking a chance of causing bacteria to get started.
