Helping Gain Weight?

Hello! My little beardie is about 6-7 months now, and I noticed he had a lot of excess skin, if you know what I mean. He seems very skinny, however he eats like a maniac. xD He is always eating, so do you guys know anything that can help him gain weight pretty quick? Thanks!

Have you had a vet visit to rule out internal parasites? The vet can do a fecal test to be sure. What foods are you feeding?

I am feeding crickets, mealworms, waxworms, strawberries, greens, etc and the omnivore food mix that has dried veggies and bugs you get from pet stores. they are all slightly dusted with calcium d3. and also, we have no exotic vets near us or at least any that I know of.

Cant really tell if his belly is plump, but I do see the access skin you were referring to. Hows his water intake?

Try giving his a couple of wax worms to help him gain some weight. But keep in mind this should be going as a treat. Some people are against this but I have heard of people feedind pinky mice too to help put on weight, I would also take him to the vet and get a fecal test done to rule out parasites.

Really needs a vet to assess. Internal parasites are definitely a top candidate. An annual vet check up is a part of good husbandry practices. Best to find one anyway since he will need one during his life. Now is a g
reat time to start.
