Feeding

Hello!
What are the recommendations for feeding? My beardie is about 8-9 months old, I am currently feeding him twice a day (25 dubias each time) and greens+squash twice a day. He still seems hungry!

When should I cut back on feeding bugs?

Thanks!
Pam

He looks good - he needs his insects everyday till he's a year- what is the size of the dubia your feeding ? If they are too small he will eat more of them-- offer him some worms like supers horn or meal or all three staggering when you feed them-- only feed like 3 of the supers horn 1-2 and meal worms 4-5 - those are all treat worms- offer more veggies if you want - that will not put weight on him-

I just ordered medium 5/8” dubias, but he was eating small 1/2” before. Should I still feed him 25 twice a day or taper to once a day?
Thanks a lot for your reply!

They are still growing at 9 months and need protein to do so. Don't cut back on insects till he stops growing. It should be roughly at the one year mark.

Feed as many as he will eat -- I fed mine one - two at a time and I also would put like 10 in a dish they couldn't get out of - then watched to see how many he ate if he ate them all then I would add more like 3 or so to keep count of how many he was eating - Blaze phazed out of eating two times a day around 5 months - but he was filling up on dubias super worms salad and horn worms -- I also fed him silk worms in the salad like 2 or so so he got a variety of food the worms were fed alternately - not all at the same feeding -

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
