Bearded dragons supplementation can either be done through gut-loading, ‘sprinkling’ or the so-called process of dusting. Supplementation plays a vital part in keeping your pet Bearded dragon healthy. ‘Dusting’ is the process of coating insects, or other foodstuffs, with a powdered supplement prior to feeding being fed.
Supplementation through dusting
‘Dusting’ can done on any feeder insect and on greens, but it is very popular (and quite simple) to do with live crickets. Food is simply mixed with a moderate amount supplement powder in an spill- or escape proof plastic bag or container.
In order to keep it fresh, dusting should be done just prior to feeding the insects or greens to Bearded dragons.
Supplements for dusting
Any powdered form of Bearded dragon supplementation can be used for dusting food. To ensure quality and optimal efficiency, commercial reptile (or even Bearded dragon) supplementation should be used.
The two main supplements recommended for Bearded dragons are multi-vitamin mixtures and calcium/Vitamin D3 combinations. Calcium supplementation should be done 2 to 3 times a week, and multi-vitamin mixtures should be given every other day.
