Good Afternoon,

We did take Lucky to the vet; he had a mouth infection. They gave him antibiotics and fluids and sent us home with a regiment of antibiotics, mouth cleaning (with vet solution) and syringe feedings of food and water. Today he is cruising around his enclosure and seems much better, his mouth amazingly almost better.
Thanks for the update...good news that he is getting treatment.

Hello,

Bless him, I hope that the medication will completely clear up his mouth infection. It sounds like he is
starting to feel better. Be sure to keep him a little warmer overnight to help boost his system while he
is on antibiotics.

Lucky is doing fantastic! He is eating, drinking and exploring his habitat. The vet has also agreed to see him for his normal vet checks and anything we need.
He is not eating crickets, he has no taste for them. The vet chuckled a bit as he is a picky eater.

Vegetables, fruits and meal worms currently and flower pieces made for bearded dragons.
Should he be getting anything else that is not crickets?

Yes no meal worms-- they have a tendency to cause impaction because of the exoskeleton on them please get him some dubia roaches
www.dubiaroaches.com go by the size on their website - roaches should be no bigger than the space between their eyes -- I would get him some medium super worms feed on his salads 1-3- every other day -- some horn worms as well - they are a soft hydrating worm and grow fast so you can feed those everyday so they dont out grow him - here is a website for nutrition
ignore the kale info its outdated and a good staple feeder
Nutrition Content
another good staple feeder is BSFL
www.symtonbsf.com use them on his salads feed as many as you want -

Thank you, this is very helpful. We do have some super worms and I didn't know that about the meal worms.
I will get some horn worms and, I will try the roaches, he really has had no interest in bugs, just worms. Very picky boy we have here.

You have spoiled him w/ the meal worms they are like candy to them ---- please get a staple insect feeder -- are you dusting his worms ? Calcium D3 and vitamins w/ beta carotene --- I can post how often etc

Hello,

That is great to hear Lucky is eating well right now. They can be very picky for sure. Just try your
best with getting him to eat some variety though I know how challenging it is.
I hope his mouth is going to heal up fully for him, too.

Hi I have a hypo bearded dragon called Buddy. He is two, and I have a lot of experience looking after him. He has never benn sick before so I am hoping he will not!
Hello , im still figureing out this platform,
So violet laid eggs, weeks ago, she was doing very well , in the last 3 to 4 days her poop was more than runny . Haven't changed much in her diet , an appetite is very good. Should I be considering a parasites remedy as she does get bloated as soon as she starts to eat.
My baby beardie likes to sit in their water bowl. I'm curious on whether it would hurt them or not.
Any thoughts an knowledge will be helpful. Thank u
