Yeh Obi has had some problems with his health worms and an infection in his stomach so im trying tyo get his weight back up hence the fatty pinkies...Just not sure if i can give him one a week or if that will damage him!
pixie_bex, I cant see any harm in giving your beardie a treat once a week...sure, they say pinkies are fattening, but also consider the benefits of a pinkie, especially if your beardie is underweight and has suffered health problems...Is he active...male beardies can be lazy, you do not want him to gain too much weight.
It was unusual for him to have suffered from worms and a stomach infection...I would offer a pinkie every 7 to 10 days, see how he goes, also look for regurge too :wink: ...T.T. 8)
oh, I better display my beardie sig. in this section :roll: :lol: :wink: ...
Pinkies are fine for a beardie just not in large quantities... People generally feed them to Gravid females to build them up but my leo and dragons get a treat every other month of a small pink. No hard inn it at all if a lizard is underweight.
Im gonna give him another one on Thursday then it would be a week....
T.T im unsure if it was an infection the vet put him straight on antibiotics while he was testing him for other things and said that could be the case so im unsure if it was both.... He is perking up a bit now but hates being in his viv!
