Supplements

I don’t live near any pet stores and don’t drive but would be able to have family drop off calcium supplements in 1.5 weeks. I really thought I brought it back with me from college but i guess I forgot it. I still have the multivitamins and a t5 reptisun bulb. Should he be okay with just multivitamins during that time?

I'm still new so going to refrain from my 2 cents, but a relevant question may be do you feed bsfl/calciworms every day?

Hiya,

This partially depends on the age and health of your beardie. How old are they? Any past or current health concerns? When were they last to the vet?

If your BD a young to middle aged adult and otherwise healthy as confirmed by a vet, a few days off his calcium shouldn't be any major issue. This is espcially true if you have high calcium foods to offer, such as BSFL, which you normally wouldn't dust with calcium anyway. However if your beardie is young (less than 2 years old in this case) or has any history of health problems I would recommend ordering calcium online ASAP.

Hope this helps!
