So if she were mine I would drop the vitamin A... The reptivite with D3 has vitamin A and this is a fat soluble vitamin like D3 so it stores in their bodies. Too much creates toxicity and overdose. So I would do reptivite with D3 only 2 times a month and then the calcium without D3 all other feedings.I redid her lights. I can post a picture tomorrow. Thank you @Beman
@kinyonga Dr. Benson used to be the veterinarian at the zoo here. He came highly recommended for exotics. I got Ruby in for the first appointment available, which was a drop off. I did not get to meet him in person, but he did call me to review. His technician showed me how to give the injections. She said IM next to the spine in order to guarantee injecting into muscle. She did not specify above or below the waist. What are your concerns with above or below the waist? His office sent me a follow up text on Friday. I sent a video of her rubbing her eye against my hand and one of her rubbing her eye against the side of her cage. He suggested a recheck early this week. He saw her for the first time on 7/20.
To clarify for the Vitamin A supplement... Dr. Benson told me to order Repashy Superfood or Mazuri better bug gut loading and Repashy Vitamin A which I did. I had Reptivite and repticalcium from the petstore where my parents purchased Ruby. He said to get rid of those and only order feeders online.
My understanding from your extremely helpful advice is to use Reashy or Mazuri for gut loading. Reti Calcium without Vitamin D for every feeding and Reptivite and Vitamin A plus 2 feedings per month. Is this correct?
I am attaching photos of supplements.
I think if your vet knew how off your UVB lighting was that he would have given feedback that direction as well. She is awfully young to be showing full blown vit A issues.
Repashy and Mazuri are great. I would not use the repashy superload for any roaches though since it is higher in protein.
