So my dad just bought 50 mealworms as feeders for my beardie.From my research i heard that mealworms can cause my baby 2 month old to be impacted because they are hard to digest for my beardie so is it as big of a issue as to confront my dad about or should i not confront him and just let my guy eat them

They can be O.K as a small part of the diet but not as a staple feeder. It's important that your dragon is big enough and that you have proper heat and uvb for digestion. Dragons that are larger than 7" seem to do O.K with a few mealies every few days but it's important to have other feeders like appropriate sized dubia roaches, crickets, silkworms + bsfl.

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 ?
