    Is diatomaceous earth safe?

    You can place diatomaceous earth around the outside edge of her enclosure - think like a salt circle to ward the evil bugs from entering the enclosure from the outside. You can safely use more outside the enclosure. For the inside I am hesitant to talk about inside the enclosure. Diatomaceous...

    ... I should have written her Ca : P ratio as 11.1 : 4.3 = 2.58 : 1 (that looks better)

    Getting some water between the lips is the only reliable way to have her drink water. I think it is only 3 times she had ever drank water that I have seen. Basically once per year. I give her roaches an orange to eat before I give them to her for hydration. She also gets hornworms sometimes. I...

    It's no ending yet. We're still figuring things out. He's such a sweet beardie. Really good with handling. Quetzal has been showing more happy colors, less black beard unless he sees something to head bob at. In water he can move around much better than out of water. Preliminary thinking he may...

    New owner trying to start out right.

    I'm so sorry for your loss. You have a great baby to juvenile set up. That baby was so small and was likely too sick when you got him. You gave him kindness which is so much more than what he had before he meet you.

    New rescue Quetzal. About 4 year old male beardie with some issues

    There will be Quetzal updates. I need more time to figure out if he needs a beardie wheelchair thing or if better nutrition and therapy can help him use his legs. We did a bath and he could pseudo-walk in the bath. So I have a little hope he can be in better shape. It's okay if he stays a...

    They opened their store very close to me. Between Snake Discovery and Twin Cities Reptiles there are two great stores for herps in my area. Twin Cities. On Sunday I decided to adopt on their rescue beardies. His condition isn't that good, but he gets by and he could have potential to improve...

    New rescue Quetzal. About 4 year old male beardie with some issues

    I've been thinking of getting a new rescue beardie for awhile. This guy has been in the Snake Discovery adoption island for something like 3 months? That was after his quarantine too. Something about him just called to me. He can be Quetzalcóatl but Quetzal works good too The history we have...

    There are tags inside, meant for hanging a cat toy, but I used them to secure cork bark. Also added hemp cloth as a poop shield

    As prices went up and up this year Devlyn's pet insurance has been more valuable than ever. Using Nationwide pet insurance. No regrets for the insurance. Now some fun Develyn pics. We got her a new carry bag. We visited Snake Discovery and she walked in Rex's footprints. Her house still has an...

    Baths after removing stitches

    Waiting a week before submerging in water is the usual guide for human patients. I would guess that is where that came from. I only work with humans, not in a veterinary office. Again, I do not work with animals, but I would ask the veterinarian what are the risks of infection and dehiscence...
