One day without UVB?

Postby Littlebuddysmomma » Fri Oct 30, 2020 6:37 am

Hi all! To get to the point, I’m wondering if Cookie will be ok without UVB for one day. More details below.

We are in the middle of moving, and I’d like to bring her with me to our new house while I’m getting some things done there tomorrow. She’s been incredibly restless lately so I think she’ll appreciate a new place to explore for the day. I am NOT bringing her entire setup with me yet (we are still sleeping at the old house, so she stays where I stay!)... but was thinking that just for tomorrow I’d bring her heat lamp to the new house and set it up over a bin for when she gets cold while we’re there. (Mostly she’ll prob be running around on the floor, which is all tile and actually warmed). I do not want to bring her entire UVB bulb until I bring the rest of her setup because I’m afraid of it shattering in the back-and-forth. So I’m wondering if she’ll be ok without UVB just for the day, or maybe should I get her one of those unreliable coil ones as a better-than-nothing source for tomorrow?

Agreed with ClaudiusX... one day should not pose a problem at all.
