I suspect you are saying the Dragon ate the Cricket gel for water and feeding. If thta is the case your Dragon should be absolutely fine. Rule of thunb with this is if the cricket ingestes it to keep it alive the dragon can ingest it. All that goes into the crickets are passed through the cricket to the dragon.

The things we need to be cautious with is insects found and are not fed. This would include spiders, lady bugs, and fireflies. They are highly toxic and will keel a Dragon.

As far as cricket food or cricket water, that will nit cause a problem.

Please hit reply to discuss this information.

I must tell you I found this site by accident and was amazed when I asked a question of the Veteranians online. I wish I could have found it sooner it could have made such a difference in the outcome of my pet's surgery. However, I am passing along the information to my sister-in-law (a cat-rescue person who is also a nurse), and perhaps it will help someone else who may experience the same problem. The doctor who answered my question was amazing, and while it didn't come it time to change the outcome of my situation, it is reassuring to know the caliber of Vets/Doctors that you have at JustAnswer. Thank you for being there.
