Hi I was wondering if you guys thought my beardies front legs look swollen or are they just chunky I guess they shouldn’t be thin but they seemed a bit swollen to me, she seems fine in herself moving around no issue but thought I’d check

Thank you I just thought they were puffy but I’m pleased they look ok. I feed her insects every other day and she is 15 months old, would you suggest lowering the days she eats insects or do you think it would be ok

Salads every day and insects 2-3 times per week - treat worms super horn meal worms every other day 2-3 of them

Yes I’ve not switched the ratio yet I always provide salads but she doesn’t often eat them I am going to start holding back on bugs untill she is eating regular salads

I know I can look it up online but best to ask you I feel.. I feed kale or spring greens daily usually kale, and throw in blueberries or carrot or butternut squash.. but can you advise some more staple veggies I can offer daily to keep things interesting for her? Thanks

Heres a website for nutrition look it over ignore the kale info it is outdated and a great staple feeder
variety is key w/ diet -- please feed the blueberries sparingly they are high in sugar and can cause diabetes-

she needs fresh salads every day - that is her main diet now that she is an adult - you can feed dubia roaches silk worms and BSFL as a staple insect as well but live insects are the best -- if you need websites to get those off of I can post them -- in the long run it is cheaper to get them on line than pet stores --

Hi would you mind sending a link or recommending the best multi vitamin for my beardie ? I have nutribol however after looking at the link you sent it has to much vitamin A to vitamin D so could you recommend one for me ? Thanks

Hello,

I was going to comment on your boy's front arms....is he going to shed possibly? Most times, they
appear to be slightly puffy or swollen before they are going to shed.
Are you in the UK?

Hello,

Ok, her arms do look whitish like they are preshed. It doesn't appear to be swollen as if she had
gout but sometimes it does take time for them to shed. Are any other parts on her swollen, like her
feet, toes, etc?
