Ok, thank you a lot for your help. He does move around on his own, he just doesn’t very much. Some moments he’ll run around but then he’ll just sleep the rest of the day and night.

You're welcome ! Get the soft foods + temp. set up ASAP. When your uvb can reach him because the plastic tote is not so tall he'll probably start feeling better .

Yes that's good , if you can get one that's about a 10-12" longer it would be better though. Also put the uvb long ways from opposite sides for the max uvb coverage. How is he doing, will he eat or drink at all ?

Ok. And I haven’t tried to feed him yet but he did drink some water when I put some drops in his snout. He seems to be a little bit more active

Good that he's drinking , that's very important. I see his little face looking up, he seems pretty alert there. :) How's he breathing ?

He still does frequent hard gulps which I’m not sure is normal or not.

As long as he's not huffing, gaping or gasping it may just be something that passes. He may not have an R.I. or MBD, hopefully his set up + closer proximity to the lights will help him out.

I got him some reptaboost and gave him 0.1cc. He drank most of it up. I believe maybe he feels bad because he’s shedding a ton, it’s finally starting to come off today. I’ll give him 0.1cc twice a day and see if he gets any better.

That's good, progress being made. :) You can spritz him lightly while he's shedding, that can help.

Hello,

That looks very nice for him! I agree, he is making some progress & he does appear happy
& alert there, too.
I am happy to hear that he has taken some water & some reptaboost too. Hopefully he is
feeling much better. Let us know how his shedding is coming along also.

Tracie

Update: Went to the vet today. They said he’s fine and is probably being really dramatic about his shedding. Though he could use some calcium so I got him some calcium powder today and gave him some water and more reptaboost which he ate up. He’s shedding pretty fast, I can see his new scales on his legs and head.
