Bearded Dragon and Other Small Reptiles
The one thing most pet owners have in common is we all want to do right by our pets, regardless of the type. Because of that, there is no shortage of advice on the best way to care for them, so we won’t reinvent the wheel here, but we will say that for general diet and care instructions, we tend to rely on the Merck Veterinary Manual, which you can find here
When it comes to feeders for bearded dragons and other small reptiles, there are a couple of points to keep in mind. First, the obvious is make sure their diet has the balance recommended by your vet or by the Merck Vet Manual as too much fat, too little vitamins, or other imbalances can lead to issues as your reptile ages. Second, growing reptiles are going to need more protein than older animals (so as your reptile ages, make sure the calories you feed them is not more than their activity level consumes…you’ll be able to see if you have this balance wrong!).
At LocalSols, our live feeders bring a number of strengths to a properly balanced diet:
One more useful bit of information about our feeders is to remember that, if you think your dragon needs a nutritional boost in a certain area, you can give them a boost in a 100% natural way by “gut loading” the LocalSols feeders. To do that, you simply put a food high in that nutrient into our feeder’s container the night before you intend to feed them to your pet and they will consume it right before your pet consumes them. Because pet owners spend so much time with their pets, they oftentimes have a better “gut instinct” on when their pet isn’t eating well and our feeders provide you an easy and convenient way to boost their nutrition.
