    Hi everyone. It's great to be here :D Just wondered if I could ask the Veiled Cham owners here in the UK what their dusting schedule is. I have been seeing a very mixed bag especially to calcium with D3. I've had my cham a few months and he is doing everything he should. But would just like...

    Hi, My boyfriends picking up his first reptile this weekend, a two year old female beardie:) Just wondering what everyone uses to dust food with, as I use Repashy calcium plus with my Leo's but I'm not sure that people use it with beardies? Otherwise would nutrobal and pure calcium be better...

    Hi All, You may recall that my 7-8 month old female bearded dragon is a bit of a fussy eater. She has always stuffed her face with live food and has been very fussy with veg and greens. She is now in a routine where she will eat greens every day or so so I've got over that issue. Unfortunately...

    I've always had a problem with dusting mealies with Nutrobal for the simple reason it just falls straight off! Calcium powder is a lot finer and sticks to them no problem but I must be wasting a lot of the nutrobal cos within seconds of dusting it's at the bottom of the dish. Anyone got any ideas?

    I have only fed my cresties live food a couple of times, mostly to see how they would do with it, and I've decided to start giving them live food on a regular basis so I would like some advice on what is best to dust it with please. I know you need to dust them with calcium (i'm not that much...

    My leopard gecko is just over 6 months old and up until now has been eating incredibly well. However, lately he/she has not been interested in eating any prey that has been dusted. It will eat crickets and mealworms that have no supplement on them but won't even notice anything with a little bit...

    Hi, I recently purchased some mealworms for my crestie to try and I gave him some last night, he loved them. Anyway when I tried to dust them with calcium like I do with crickets and locusts the powder just fell off and will not stick to them. How do I get it to stick to them? or shall I just...

    Hey guys, I'm just wondering how many times a day should I feed my beardie? She's about 7-8 months old now and eats a lot of rocket. Also what should I dust with calcium and the multi-vitamin powder, and how often should I do it? Thank you.

    Is one better than the other or should i do both when i get my cham?

    :hmm: My cresties get Clarks mix a couple of times a week (fill up & leave in viv 2/3 days) and also, currently, crickets/locusts a couple of times a week Given that the mix is 'balanced' does the live food still have to be dusted and, if so, what's the best thing people have found to use...

    Hi guys, a query about dusting crickets and other live feed... how much exactly should they be dusted with? i crack open the box and poke the bag of powder in and give it a squeeze and it shoot's in the box and then give it a fair shake so that most of the crickits have a dusty white coating...

    Can anyone give me advice on the correct dusting for my bearded dragons food. The pet shop just gave me Nutrabol and told me to use that. - Is this calcium or vitamins? Ive read that I should be dusting with calcium powder 5 x per week and vitamin powder 2 x per week. So im confused...

    Ive recently started keeping cresties and while I have no problem dusting large prey for my beardie, its hard work and messy with the smaller prey! is it best to just dust them in a small pot and then leave the pot in the enclosure until they have all dispersed? All the best Tom
