she started digging in the carpet!!! I knew I could feel an egg in her belly still!! It wasnt for very long and she eventually went back to her basking spot.. but idk what to do!! Do I give her a lay box again? I know the quack vet told me not to bc that's just telling her it's ok to produce eggs..I'm pissing off nature.. etc..if she's got some more and she's ready to lay them.. shouldn't I make her a spot and hope it goes more smoothly this time?! O God I'm so worried for my girl!!



Give her a lay box, she won’t make more eggs simply at the sight of a lay box. Her lay box is her sanitary napkin.

Hello!

How is Eevee doing?
I hope she is feeling better, bless her. Be sure she is getting plenty of calcium in her diet,
in her greens or a slurry you make for her.
Are her eyes looking better, still droopy?

hello.. been a few days since our last update.. and so far Eevee has been doing great!! I'm still scared to death about this clutch she's got brewing in her belly.. which is as big as ever.. still no sign of lay day.. she's still eating all on her own.. and she is back to pooping daily.. still looks weird with the mucus bubble around it etc.. she's still only at about 50% with her left leg..and still pretty swollen.. but Dr. Told me no on more antibiotics..so not sure what that's about..if I should be demanding more antibiotics..or what? The infection is obviously still an issue. Her eyes r looking more normal.. I'm almost positive she's about ready to shed as well. So besides her leg.. my main concern is her current egg situation.. I hope the fact that her last clutch got stuck/infected doesn't automatically doom her this time around.. if so.. is there anyway I will know before she's in trouble? I have no idea how long they have been brewing.. I guess since I'm prepared this time and I know the signs to look for once trouble starts.. ugh.. idk.. this better be it for her this year though.. I know that much!!
Peace...love...beardies
