Why is my Iguana Gaining Weight?

Is your iguana gaining weight? If you’re not sure, weigh your iguana today and then weigh him again in a few more days. If there is a significant change in weight then call your vet to schedule an exam right away. If the weight change is slight then it could be the result of diet change, exercise change, and other habits. Stress and anxiety can cause weight gain or bloating in various animals and reptiles. If your iguana is stressed about s schedule change or even a change in his habitat then he could put on weight. If you’ve changed your iguana’s food brand, make sure you’re feeding the right amount at the set times of day. Sometimes a fourth a cup of food in one brand could be the same as an eighth cup of food in another brand. If you’re still unsure, give your Sugar Land, TX vet a call for assistance.
