Bearded Dragon refusing to eat

Postby Chrislj91 » Fri May 02, 2014 10:00 am

Hi guys. I am new here and not sure if I am even posting in the right place, My apologies if I am not.

I have a Bearded Dragon (Male). He is about a year and a half old now. He always had a healthy appetite until a few months ago. He one day just decided that he no longer wanted to eat crickets but was happy eating anything else from roaches to meal worms. He also refused to eat greens except on rare occasion. Now He is pretty much refusing anything. There are no reptile specialists I can find close to me, but I have taken him to various pet stores and owners. Received appetite boosters and nothing has helped. I am honestly at my wits end and I am considering giving him up instead of him dying.

Just to add, he has not lost weight or anything.

If anyone can help me it would be great. You can get me on my email at
