Serraptease

Postby MrsGilf » Thu Aug 13, 2020 2:21 pm

Hello,

I was reading someone’s post before about using serrapteae and I was wondering if I ordered this what would be the a
Dosage please, my beardie is 1 year old and seems to be struggling with front right leg, he walks in it ok but when tries to climb can’t seem to bring it far enough forward, he isn’t as active as he used to be. He has plenty of calcium in the form of powder on his salad, also has live feed, all uv bulbs less than 6 months old as I’m thinking of trying this next. Any help would be appreciated

You can get serrapeptase here https://bug-de-lite.com/Item/Serrapeptase and it will likely come with dosing instructions (if not you can ask Tracie). You can also offer live silkworms to administer serrapeptase. It has been reported to help inflammation.

Hello,

Is your dragon recovering from an injury or have metabolic bone disease?
I can definitely help with dosing of the serrapeptase for you, no problem. They did post
up my website, too for you if you decide you would like to purchase some to try for your
dragon.
We would be happy to review your tank setup with you also, if you need..

Hi there Thankyou for your reply, I will go and get some silk worms today and also order the serraptease, my set up has a basking light and also a 30w reptisun lamp, I don’t know how he has injured his leg he just woke up like that one morning and at first wasn’t moving it at all so it has improved but it is definately restricted when climbing. He was out of his tank a lot before and did have a habit of throwing himsef off things

Hello,

They are terrible about jumping off of things & hurting themselves.
You are using a Reptisun 10 long tube bulb? How far away from him is it & is it mounted on top of
or underneath of the screen?
The addition of the silkworms should help him out as well!
Let us know how he is doing.

Hello,

Oh yes, the UK! Shipping will run probably $14 for you. I am not sure if you can find the liquid in the UK
or not, I have not looked for that online before.
How is your girl doing today?

Yes I definately will, I’m so glad I found this forum. It’s lovely when other people ask about him as my family aren’t too keen on Him. I ordered the liquid in the end and paid the postage. It will be worth it if it works.

Thankyou
