MBD Symptoms and some general help

Hello, I just wanted to know a few symtoms of MBD to make sure my veiled cham is ok. Im just a cautious person but I want to make sure. Early stage signs would be nice to know. Also its right eye seems to be an oval shape more than the circle but the other one is fine. Its the actual eye and not the part that moves. Again I am cautious so I want to know if this means anything is going on. Thanks.

Looks like a pretty little lady to me! If you'd like us to review husbandry, copy/paste and fill out the following form. Pictures of her enclosure from the lights down would be extremely helpful, as well!

The third one is of her back foot. I asked quite a while ago but no one could really tell but could you see what gender this is too please. I havnt known since I got it and the pet shop didnt know because apparently it was too young. Thanks
I just recently got destroyed for saying this on a Facebook group (by the moderator no less) but signs of mbd, unless it’s a very advanced case, can be the same as signs of over supplementation, and in my most humble, inexperienced, ignorant opinion, only a vet can fully confirm mbd with, usually, blood tests. If your supplementation and uvb is on point I wouldn’t stress. Please fill out the form if you’re interested in what we can help with—namely, the things that could eventually lead to mbd.

@Byron18 said..."I asked quite a while ago but no one could really tell but could you see what gender this is too please"...you've been told many times that it's a female and that it needs a laybin. Have you set up a proper lay bin yet?

Did you make all the changes hat have been suggested to you about supplements? How are you gutloading/ feeding the insects now?
Have you changed your UVB light when it should be changed?

To tell if it has MBD we need to see all of her from the side...not just a bit of her hiding in the leaves.
