Arm concerns

Postby Maddy5150 » Mon Jan 18, 2021 8:09 pm

Hello I noticed ziggy front arms look fat to me like gout maybe? I’m very concerned she might have it although I can squeeze her front arms without her getting mad or pulling away which seems good. Is she normal and I’m looking way to far into things? I’m very concerned [Click image to enlarge]

She looks like the rest of them -- its called pop eye arms -- if shes not pulling away or anything then they arent hurting - usually if its gout the claws and foot are swollen as well not just the arm itself

Kind of she’s picky with veggies she loves kale but I read it shouldn’t be a staple as it binds calcium I guess so I’m going to start giving her collards I think. Does she look over weight?

Ok awesome! One more thing. She’s 15 months I have a new feeding schedule in mind can I have your input? Leafy greens 7 days a week, insects 6 days a week, other kinds of vegetables 4 days a week, vitamin powder 1 day a week, calcium powder 3 days a week, and fruit 1 day a week.

I would cut the protein down to 2-3 times per week now since shes over a year old - calcium w/ out D3 NO phosphorus should be used if your using a T 5 bulb for a UVB 3 times per week and calcium w/ D3 should only be used 2 times per week - since shes eating her veggies like a champ the vitamins can be limited - shes going to get her nutrients thru them --as far as the veggies I would mix them like collards/turnip or kale / collards or kale/mustard etc add in some squash and I would give fruit once a week like your said - a mixture of salad material is good -- here is a website and you can go from there

Oh geez I didn’t know that the T5 bulb didn’t need D3 I’ve been giving her D3 with it 5 times a week. So I should do 3 days without D3 and 2 days with D3 but bugs only 3 times a week?

And for powders I use repti calcium with D3 and flukers with our D3 when she had a MVB are those ok? And still giving calcium 5 times a week?

No you were good giving the D3 that is fine - but since shes over a year old now you dont need to give the D3 as often --- so alternating the two of them will be fine but I would dust the insects cuz you know she will eat them --- yes the on the supplements and bugs question -- T 5's are stronger than the T 8's that is why I asked about the UVB --
