Hiccup he is 6 and Blaze is 4
We were giving him D3 supplements (3 times a week thats what the store was doing) but the vet told us it is really easy to over supplement your dragons. She suggested gut loading the insects and then dusting his food. (salad) with crushed up juvenile bearded dragon supplement. No his little eyes are not still swollen, and as for his UVB we have the arcadia reptile pro T5 12% UVB and it is sitting about 18 inches away from where he basks. The top of his tank is also a mesh lid!:)
18 inches is too far- it needs to be 12-15 w/ no screen in-between - he needs calcium D 3 5x per week one time per feeding lightly coated on the insects- babies are going to eat the insects before salads

Well of course hes going to eat the insects over the salads lol those are the best part! But in all seriousness, were giving him a pellet sprinkled over his salad, and then gut loading his bugs. Feeding him a D3 supplement 5 times a week, plus his UVB light, plus sitting in the sun, plus giving him a pellet and gut loading his bugs seems like a lot of D3? I think in the winter (since its the Pacific northwest) that implementing more powered D3 over his insects would defiantly help (especially if he is not getting everyday sun baths). We did also move his light down a bit. We are not wanting to mount the light under his tank lid because per the instructions from arcadia saying to keep about 12in away. If we were to mount it underneath the lid, it would be something like roughly 6inches away from his basking spot.

He only needs the D 3 on his insects and the good uvb- the sun is a extra bonus -

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
