Hi - Just wanted to ask how long Beardies can go without eating. As some may remember Yoshi stopped eating weeks back and I took him to the vet and he was thoroughly checked and given some medicine for parasites (although he did not have a large infestation). He is still not eating. I think that must be 9 weeks now. I weigh him every week and he has not lost any weight at all and is still a healthy 620-640 grams. He is active when out and alert and watching everything from his tank. The vet could not find anything else wrong with him. Anybody any ideas? I know they can go into shut down during brumation but this is JUNE!!!! Should I just keep tempting him every day and hope he starts to eat again or what??

Any suggestions most welcome.

hello, bearded dragons can go without food for sometime if necessary however because of the vets he may just need a nudge too eat. dont force feed but place the food there so he will eat if he needs too. dont worry :D
