Blueberry Health Concerns
Overall blueberries have a few areas of concern. Due to their small size it's easy to control the portions which makes them less of a health risk. Below are the main areas of concern:Highly Acidic
Blueberries are very acidic and have an average pH value of 3.2. This is way too acidic for bearded dragons and can cause digestive discomfort. Fortunately blueberries are fairly small a few blueberries mixed with other foods can help neutralize the acidity.High Sugar
Blueberries have almost 10g of sugar (per 100g serving) which should make them more of a treat than a meal. Bearded dragons are not used to digesting a lot of sugar, so a diet too high in sugar can lead to mouth and digestion issues.Poor Calcium to Phosphorus Ratio
Blueberries have twice as much phosphorus than calcium which is not ideal. Phosphorus blocks calcium absorption so meals containing too much phosphorus may prevent any calcium from being absorbed (for that meal). Calcium is important for bearded dragons and diets low in calcium can overtime lead to severe skeletal and health issues.
