Hi! We are going away for a short trip next month and my beardie who will be 8 months by then will be alone for about 2 1/2 days. What do you think I should leave for him in terms of food, big large salad bowls?? Should it be chopped as I normally do or better leaving whole leaves? Should I spray the food with water? Are there any brand of high quality pellet food I can leave for him also? If so, what brand? I’m just worried he’s going to be hungry. Thanks for the help in advance!!

At 8 months old, I don't think a weekend trip will cause any issues as long as his lights are set on timers/automated. Give him a bug meal before you leave and then leave a nice big salad for him. I don't think you need to spray it with water or change the size of the leaves, but you can if you want to. I wouldn't bother with pellets unless he is already used to eating them/likes them. Better to focus on the salads at this point. If you start taking trips for longer than a few days, it's a good idea to either bring him along or have someone stop by to clean up and refresh his food. In my experience, weekend trips are no problem though.

Hello,

I completely agree, at 8 months of age, he should be just fine. Really, as Cooper stated, the
most important aspect of leaving him for a couple of days or so is making sure your timer is
working well. As long as he has some heating & lighting, possible water or moisture source,
then he should be fine.

is my bearded dragons left side supposed to be hard, it’s right above its left leg in the back, it’s kind of hard? i feed it insects and greens. not sure if it’s normal or not? i can post pictures.
His first vet visit went well! Abelardo Texas looks good physically according to his new Dr.
Unfortunately, on the fecal it showed that he has Coccidia. Not a surprise honestly... he has been having diarrhea since I got him. I got Albon, F10, and a steam cleaner on hand.
I'm kinda freaked out, I heard coccidia is a beast to get rid of. Wish me luck! 😭
Sorry didn’t mean to post the last post was an accident, but I do have a question I have a 7 month old dragon, her name is Smaug and she will not eat her salad I have tried everything that I can, just wondering if anyone can help me because I’m stuck and I know that she should probably be eating them by now! If anyone can give me ideas that would be great!
