Calcium injection!

Postby Brittneesmile » Sun Jun 16, 2019 8:32 pm

My gravid beardie is now being given calcium injections daily, I’m supposed to do them myself and it’s making me nervous. I was show how to do it but I still have a couple questions.
Is there supposed to be a bump after it’s injected? I did it today and there was a raised area.
Is it bad if there’s blood after?
I was told by the vet to pull back once the needle is in to make sure there is no blood and then inject. Later when I checked she had bled a little after.

Does anyone have any other tips or videos they can share with me?

Just a question - why are you injecting calcium to your gravid dragon?
My dragon laid eggs two weeks ago - she had her normal intake of calcium and nothing went wrong.
Just wondering if its completely necessary to give calcium injections?

Also I had given my dragon antibiotics once (the nurse had administered them) and caused some bleeding - I'm not going back there - I was told that it's not good when they bleed as it scab could be at risk of infection.

They ran out of liquid calcium at my vet and she isn’t eating so she has no way of getting the calcium.
She’s been gravid for a month
