    Hi All Been a while since Ive posted here but I need abit of advice, my Leopard Gecko has been in hiding for several months and only recently made a proper appearance. Pretty sure hes developed MBD as hes walking funny and his front left leg is curling inwards as hes moving. Reading the cause...

    Hello! Apologies in advance, this is a long one. I'm hoping for some guidance on my sweet leopard gecko's care. Her name is Juniper (my exotic vet was 99% sure she's female but we went by looks only, don't know if that will help), and she was my foster turned "unadoptable" adoption. For...

    I live in a relatively small town and recently heard of a gecko that someone was giving away for free because their child wasn't looking after it very closely. I don't know if I'm going to keep him but I sprang on it because I know there's not very many people where I live who know much about...

    Hi, I'm a vet student doing a research project on how vets can reduce the rates of metabolic bone disease! It would be great if you could take a couple of minutes to fill in this short survey on what you know, how much you trust vets and where you tend to go for help etc. Please feel free to be...

    My female green anole doesn't seem well for the last month or so and I have no idea what is wrong with her. She has been gravid and laid many eggs throughout the summer. At the end of the breeding season she started to behave a bit strange, for example hiding more and being more brown in...
  10. Newbie Advice
    Hey guys, I'm getting slightly worried over my new crestie (first time owner) and wondered if anyone could offer any advice or help. Spock is a 5 year old male crested gecko who has previously suffered with MBD and has FTS. The week before I brought Spock home he was very lethargic, unable...

    I do voluntary work at a pet shop, and noticed one of their baby leo's was very skinny and after some observation, noticed that he/she has metabolic bone disease. I offered to take them home to give them one-to-one care, as I knew they he/she was about to die, and I couldn't let that happen...

    I have recently moved my 4 year old bearde to a larger viv as I now have a baby beardie who is in the smaller one. However, my adult beardie is not basking as often as he used to or sitting under his UV. When we put him under his basking light he may stay there for a bit but soon moves, sitting...

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum but I have had Benson for 5 years, and he's always been very healthy. I will start by giving info on his husbandry: Housed in a 40 gallon vivarium, with UTH and the occasional red light use just to bump temps (mainly on very cold winter days). The temp at the warm...

    I posted before, but decided I'd make a new thread. I am giving my 5 year old bearded dragon some liquid calcium, and I have been giving it for 3 days as a part of making her a happy healthy dragon. It came with a syringe without needle so I drip it directly on her "nose" (not nostrils). She...

    Hi! Me and my 5 year old bearded dragon girl live in cold Norway. Hooray heat lamps! I am quite rusty, I had a bearded dragon when I was younger but this is so long ago. If you can please read and comment if you have any thoughts, that'd make me and hopefully my beardie very happy! I am here...

    Hi, I feed my gecko locusts and mealworms and I dust them with pure calcium, I'm quite new and I'm not sure what D3 is. I always dust the food with pure calcium before I feed him, which is however many locusts/mealworms he will eat every 2 days. He is a fully grown adult which I recently bought...

    Okay, 2 years ago I rescued a lizard from someone who wasn't really taking the greatest care of him. He was anorexic, was calcium deprived, and was missing four fingers due to being housed with another beardie. He was I believe 1-2 at the time, and I have him now at the age of I believe 3...

    Hi, Just been in to feed the frogs and noticed one of my White's is moving with a limp front leg. Not sure if it is broken, early research is suggesting possible MBD. I have had them since xmas and been feeding them dusted crickets, but could it be a result of previous husbandry? He hasnt lost...

    Hello, I got this female Russian tortoise back in April and some users pointed out that she has MBD and a long beak. This is her when I first got her: Here is what she looks like now: She seems to look better, but does her beak still look too long, I do have a cuttlebone in...
