won't eat unless dusted crickets

Not open for further replies.



My bearded dragon won't eat(mostly) crickets unless they are calcium dusted.

He is about 3 months old and eats 15 crickets per day (he does not want more than that)

one day ,for some reasons, he does not eat un(?)dusted crickets.....

I am using the repcal calcium without D3, because I m using the powersun, which I heard I should not use Calcium with D3 due to its high intensity of UVB ray.

I am worried about over calcium consumption ........

would it be okay if I use calcium without d3?

I though it might be ok because he does not eat as much as others eat per day..

Use both....2 days with D3 and 3 days w/out D3. Always powder the bugs very lightly to avoid giving too much of any supplement. Some beardies are funny like that, at times just going for the coated bugs. :)

Do yu have pics of your baby + of his set up ? Here's how to post :

Currently trying not to stress over my anemic dragon....she is being treated, but I don't agree with her treatment plan and have been seeking out a second opinion from another vet. If anyone else has dealt with anemia, please let me know how it was resolved. I am losing sleep over this :cry:
Another post lol. My beardie does not like enclosures. Her tank is the kids room and she has created a nesting/bed spot in the corner. She will cuddle with my son but she know when the lights are out and the kids go to sleep, she literally goes to her bed like she is our 3rd baby. I love her. And to think, I never wanted a beardie lol
Please help. My beardie is my baby and I am worried she may be egg bound but I can't tell. She is over 2 yrs old and has never laid an egg. She has been swollen for two days and can't tell if she may be impacted or egg bound. Please help.
I'm still looking to adopt. I live near Homerville Georgia.
