Have Reptile Veterinary Questions? Ask a Reptile Expert.
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years with special interest in Reptiles and reptile rescue.
Can you tell me about the set up?
UVB light, linear tube or compact coil, strength age of bulb, and Brand?
Thank-you, we have two possibilities with what could be happening. One is an impaction which could have happened by trying to grab a cricket and ingesting bedding. Loose bedding is very dangerous and can cause a blockage. The other is calcium should be given 5 days a week. It is needed to metabolize the calcium into D3 in the body to prevent Metabolic Bone Disease. We can try doing a soak in a 50/50 warm water soak and Pedialyte and massage the abdomen to try and promote a stool. If this does not help relieve possible pressure on the spine, I have to suggest a Herp Vet visit to determine what is going on and treat it. MBD is treatable and if a blockage, the Herp Vet can tell hands on. If you do not have a Herp Vet I can locate some for you with a State.
