Bearded Dragon's UVB lamp broke

[TOPIC AUTO-LOCKED DUE TO INACTIVITY]

This morning my UVB lamp broke, I went to the store and they were all sold out. I can't take her outside because it's around 50 degrees right now. Will she be okay while I try to figure it out and is there anything I can do in the meantime?

UVB lamp broke--- are you talking about the whole fixture or the bulb or what? I dont know how long they can go w/ out the UVB --- 18 in. Fluorescent Under Cabinet Light Fixture at Home Depot if you need a new one or no other stores that sell them -- what kind of UVB do you have now that broke?

The actual lamp broke, I think the bulb is fine. I have a 48-inch lamp from Walmart and it's out of stock

She will be fine for a couple days while you sort out sourcing a new fixture :)
Even if you had to order online with prime shipping a few days without UVB will do no real damage.

Since your going to invest in a new one I would recommend this Reptisun 10 T5 or the Arcadia D3 12% or 14% T5 tube, both of which are very good. You will need a T 5 light fixture as well. Can be ordered from pangeareptiles.com
