I understand... But Kammerflage recommended the regular calcium plus with the use of T8 UVB fixtures.... We have seen chams develop Edema with the use of this supplement and with T5HO UVB fixtures. So we recommend the LoD version. The regular has more than double the amount of vitamin A and D in it than the LoD version.Thank you for the help!
Yes fecal came back clean.
I hear what you are saying regarding supps but please bear in mind this is a new regimen, not a cause of this issue. Using these new supplements is an attempt to correct the issue. Personally I'm happy with using the calcium plus for the time being as this is a regimen sworn by Kammerflage Creations as a time tested supplement that they have had great success with under similar conditions.
As for the vitamin A Plus, again this is an attempt to correct what I believe could be a Vit A deficiency. Once corrected, I will be dialling this back to using just once or twice a month.
But again these are both new supps of which he has not knowingly ingested any at all (due to not eating other than what he is force fed).
UPDATE: I have knocked the Day Gecko food on the head and replaced it with a 'Bug Juice' type concoction (there goes my brand new blender cup) feed. I gave him two 0.5ml shots of it yesterday and he was looking a little brighter when I went in this morning. He also seemed to take his breakfast a little more willingly this morning. He still struggled but seemed tp voluntarily open up while giving me a "quick, get it over with" sort of death stare
Per the vitamin A.... You will over supplement the cham using this. The calcium plus already has the Vitamin A in it at a higher strength. Adding in the vitamin A plus even once a month is going to over do it. You will end up creating a toxicity in the cham as vitamin A and D are fat soluble and stored in the tissues. These do not flush from the body like water soluble supplements. This is literally something they should have no more than 2 times a month in low levels.
You are saying that you have not gotten these into him yet however the vet gave vitamin shots... These can be dangerous in chams depending on what was in the actual shot.
I would highly recommend doing a full husbandry review... Chams are extremely sensitive, one thing being off can make them take a turn for the worse. With the fecal being clean this means it is something in the husbandry/enclosure causing the issue.
