How To Feed A Bearded Dragon A Slurry
Next, you may be wondering how to best feed your beardie their slurry.
As I am sure you can guess, youre not going to want to necessarily plop it into a bowl.
Now, if your bearded dragon will eat it this way great! But, chances are it will take a little more work than this on your end.
I recommend purchasing some affordable syringes which you can use to syringe feed your bearded dragon. These syringes here are 10ml, meaning theyre the PERFECT size for single feedings and storing leftovers in the fridge for up to 3 days.
It is important when you draw the bearded dragon slurry into the syringe, that you do your best not to have any air bubbles as this can lead to your beardie swallowing air.
If your pet will not eat from a normal syringe and requires force feeding , then youll need to administer the bearded dragon slurry in 1 of 2 ways. See below.
AGAIN, force feeding is 100% a last resort and Id only recommend doing this if you get the go-ahead from your vet and your dragon is not eating at all.
Do not force feed your dragon a slurry in the instance that its just a treat for them, only in situations where they are not eating, need their medicine, etc.
In the instance you do decide to force feed, youll have a couple ways to go about this. I recommend starting with option #1 and only progressing onto #2 if absolutely necessary.
Can A Bearded Dragon Have Too Much Uvb
Although a bearded dragon can in fact get too much UVB, what you really need to be on the lookout for is them closing their eyes every time they bask. This is a sign that the UV output from the bulb may be too strong for them. Too much of anything can be bad, even when it comes to UVB for your bearded dragon!

How Much Slurry Does My Bearded Dragon Need
Before diving head first into the recipes, it is important that we first take a moment to discuss how much slurry you should actually be giving your bearded dragon at any one time!
Typically, youll want to just give your beardie around 3 6ml per serving, with large adult beardies getting 4-6ml and smaller or young dragons getting around 3ml once a day or as needed.
And when it comes to leftovers? I recommend simply freezing them or storing in the fridge for no more than a few days tops.

Is Repashy Good For Bearded Dragons
Asked by: Miss Summer Oberbrunner II
Repashy is proud once again, to introduce a new Omnivore Gel Food Formula. â¦ Bearded Dragons are omnivores however, so it wasnât suitable as a staple diet because adults need a considerable amount of plant material in their diet and overall lower protein and fat.

Repashy Grub Pie Question
LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD
Hey guys! Just curious if it’s alright to feed my Leo Repashy Grub Pie? I heard it’s mostly for recovering Leo’s or Leo’s who have been on a hunger strike. I just thought it would be a nice healthy treat for my boy just to spice things up a bit. He’s a juvenile so I want him to grow big and strong! Any experiences feeding your Leos this stuff just to switch things up? Let me know!

I’m quite skeptical about Repashy’s Grub Pie, because of the extremely high protein level. The container says: crude protein minimum 40%!Especially for “recovering” leos who’ve been on some hunger strike, it does not seem like a very good idea.As far as I know too much protein in a diet can lead to severe health problems.

Bearded Dragon Slurry Recipe For Upper Respiratory Infections
As a disclaimer, I have not personally tried this when my bearded dragons have a Respiratory Infection, but I have read several times online that it has worked great for others during their dragons treatment.
Of course, if you suspect your bearded dragon has an infection you should always take them to the vet first and have them diagnosed and given proper medication. But, if you cant get them in right away or are looking to help them eat as they are recovering, this bearded dragon slurry recipe may prove to be beneficial.
Lastly, Ive also included Serrapeptase to the slurry recipe because it is an anti-inflammatory enzyme derived from silkworms that helps to thin mucous and prevent bacterial infections in the lungs. This addition is not 100% necessary, but recommended.
Please Note: To figure out how much Serrapeptase to give, take your dragons body weight in grams and divide by 1,000 to get the number of ml necessary to include. For example, if your dragon weighs 500 grams, youd divide this by 1,000 to get 0.5ml.
The following recipe makes a single serving. I recommend 1-3 servings per day based on how much your dragon is eating, how sick they are, and the instructions of your vet/any medications prescribed.

Force Feeding Option #: Using A Crop Needle
Using a crop needle allows you to administer the bearded dragon slurry in a much more effective way because it ensures the slurry makes it down the dragons throat.
This is a great option for medicines that dont taste good or stubborn dragons who arent eating.
You see, unlike a regular syringe that simply deposits the slurry in the mouth or the front of the throat, a crop needle actually places it down the throat, meaning the bearded dragon cant simply spit out.
Naturally, youll want to use the right size crop needle to avoid penetrating the windpipe.
For bearded dragons 6 months and older, I recommend a size 12 or 14 gauge like this one here.
Watch the video below to get an idea of how to SAFELY use a crop needle to feed a bearded dragon.
Despite being focused on birds, the strategy will remain the same for your bearded dragon.

Grub Pie For Consistent Diet
LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD
I have a very happy, healthy, adult female leopard gecko. She’s about 2 years old, active and very content. Her diet consists of mostly mealworms with the appropriate vitamins with the occasional wax worm or butter worm as a treat. However, I live in Ontario Canada and due to the current virus situation, a lot of “non-essential” business are having to close. I’m nervous that the pet stores around me will be closing their doors to the public for the foreseeable future, and I will be unable to buy live food. Is Repashy Grub Pie suitable as a main food for an adult leopard gecko, if I’m left with no choice? Are there other non-live alternatives I could feed her if everything closes? I will try to feed her live food for as long as I can, but everything is uncertain right now and I want to be prepared. Please let me know, I don’t want her to starve if I can’t buy her food.

What Foods Can Bearded Dragons Eat
Bearded Dragons can eat a wide range of live food such as crickets, mealworms and kingworms vegetables such as sweet potato and pepper and leafy greens such as kale and parsley . They can also eat limited amounts of fruit. Greens, vegetables and limited fruit make up the other 20% to 25% of their diet.
Testing Repashy Grub Pie
In 2017 I plan to give Repashy Grub Pie a good trial. I tried it once with a leopard gecko in 2016 and the response was good. African fat tails tend to loose a little weight during there breeding season. I am hoping the aroma and taste of Repashy Grub Pie will attract the African fat tails feeding response when they have not been eating enough.
I will be back with all my finds at the end of the breeding season this year.
You can order Repashy Grub from GeckoDiet.co.uk

Force Feeding Option #: Syringe Feeding
If your dragon isnt taking their slurry off the snout or simply licking at a syringe tip, then I recommend purchasing a specific type of syringe that will allow you to actually get the slurry into their mouth.
These ones here have worked great for me before and their curved tips allow me to gently insert them into the corner of my dragons mouth and aim the solution towards the middle of the tongue NOT the throat.
Nutritious Bearded Dragon Slurry Recipes For Any Health Concern
Who doesnt love a good smoothie? From their refreshing taste to their ease of consumption, theyre certainly a favorite in many cultures. And as it turns out theyre also totally loved by bearded dragons!
Thats right. What you may or may not know, is that thousands of bearded dragon owners have had major success when it comes to feeding their bearded dragons smoothies or slurries.
Slurries are great because they have a texture that is easy on your beardies digestive tract AND allow you to sneak in medicines, supplements, and more.
In fact, whenever my dragons are sick, I find I am able to get them to take certain medicines and supplements easier if they are hidden within a slurry.
Now, to ensure you are giving your bearded dragon the right quantities of their supplements, medicines, etc. I highly recommend purchasing a 1ml scoop like this one here, as most recipes below will call for increments in 1ml or 0.5ml.
Note: when preparing any of the smoothies below, feel free to remove the middle veins/stalks from large leafy greens as they provide zero nutritional value and can make the slurry taste less appetizing.

Is your beardie looking a little on the thin side these days? If so, try this recipe below to fatten him or her up and and also ensure they are receiving all of their nutrients!
The secret lies in the amazing Oxbow Carnivore Care Pet Supplement, which features an easy to absorb protein dense formula and a taste most beardies love!
Before making this slurry, verify your bearded dragon is ACTUALLY underweight here, as it is SO important to not feed healthy dragons too much protein.

The recipe will make a single serving. I recommend 3 servings per day for bearded dragons that are very underweight and struggling to get their nutrients.
