I just got some labs back for my BD and I a, trying to understand them and what each test regards. The main concern is that the vet said she has very high Calcium/D3 levels but I don't see that anywhere.

Thanks!

Hello,

Has the vet given a diagnosis? Did they do an x-ray to check for egg or follicular development?
I see the hematology report but not the complete blood count results, can you get a copy of those
as well for us, that would help.
If her calcium is very high then it is a possibility of her developing eggs during the shelling process,
but I would also need to see the Albumin & Globulin levels too for a complete protein ratio also.
I don't see any evidence of infection, which is good. What prompted you to take her to the vet
for a check up?
Is she having some health issues? We can review your tank setup, supplementation, diet, etc
with you if you need or have other concerns.

Tracie

Her calcium was listed at 47.1. I had to call to get that. I was concerned because she had been avoiding her UVB and hadn’t been eating for a month (she had maybe a 1/8 cup of greens and maybe 15 superworms over the past month). I don’t dust her food with calcium because she won’t eat it. She also doesn’t get D3. The crazy thing is that over the past month of not eating she gained 45 grams! She weighs 627g and is 22 inches long. Here is her X-ray from the visit.[Click image to enlarge]
. I asked the doctor if her kidney and liver looked ok and she said they were within the normal range.
