Can killing water dragon lizards make my dog sick? He doesnt eat them, he just shakes them to death… I cant stop him, he is a ridgeback x staffy.

Nope, killing and not eating water dragons won’t make your dog sick.

It’s just sad for the water dragon 🙁

Your dog is certainly not alone in his behaviour, many dogs and cats sadly prey on water dragons.
