Thank you thank you!!

If you just got a new beardie, introduce your beardie to the community! If you're a newcomer, say hello and introduce yourself.

Thank you thank you!!

I'm the proud mom of an 11 year old beautiful beardie named Cece. When I bought her I had no idea what I was getting into but I still felt that the "advice" I was receiving from the pet store didn't sound complete. I investigated online and made light, substrate, and food decisions based on what I found. I really felt like I was doing well by Cece. Two weeks ago I noted a shaky gait on my poor girl. It was a weekend and my vet was closed so I googled and found your forum. Im embarrassed to say that my investigations on what was best for Cece ended when she was a baby. Let's face it, there was a lot less information on the web 11 years ago. I found your discussion on the uvb lighting needed and made immediate changes thanks to Amazon and overnight shipping. She's still a little shaky but there's improvement in her gait. Your forum has likely saved her from pain and decline. I can't thank you all enough! As a side note, I believe I'm down an exotic veterinarian. I've boarded her there over vacations for the last 5 years and my lighting was never questioned.
Looking forward to learning all I can from here!

Welcome to the site! If you read about the founder the lack of concise information is why this place was started. So people could get together and support each other.

I cringe thinking of some of the things I did as a kid with either my beardie or anoles. They lived long lives, and I did my best at the time, but I could have done better. You would be hard pressed to find someone online here without some past regret.
