For starters, ditch the commercial iguana food immediately! It contains animal protein, and iguanas are strictly vegitarians. The collards are good. Mustard, turnip, and dandelion greens, as well as kale are also good. Usually i use at least two during the week, and I switch it up a lot. The greens should make up the biggest part. After that I would go for some time of orange squash(there are many varieties), parsnip, turnip, snow peas, and small amounts of occasional fruit. I'd stay away from using things like spinach and carrots. Also NEVER use lettuce. It has no nutritional value for iguanas. The rep cal supplimenting is good, but if you are feeding you iguana this kind of diet as well as giving it adequate UVB, there shouldn't be much of a need for a lot of supplimentation. This sounds very costly, but if you go to a grocery store, this stuff is not expensive. I spend around $5 a week for my iguana. You would easily spend close to that on your dog in a week, or in one trip to McDonald's. Good luck with your iguana. Let us all know how things go.
