    This is it. It just suddenly popped up yesterday. Last night was the first time my son noticed it. She seems to favor it a little, but she can still walk fine and obviously climb up on her rock okay. I touched it this morning and she didn't jerk it away or hiss or anything. It felt hard or...

    suddenly weak

    We bought her a new UVB fixture and bulb, an Acadia 24" fixed inside her cage lid. I don't know if it was just her new light or the nutrition, but she has been doing much better. Now that it has warmed up sometimes, our son also goes out to walk the dog and lets Jupiter sit on his shoulder and...

    suddenly weak

    She slept in her little cave last night, the one inside her rock under the basking light. Most days I am gone for about 13-14 hours so I don't get to see her move much during the day. When I can get a picture I'll post one, but my son and daughter tell me she's doing better and more like her old...

    Her new bulb and fixture came on Monday and I installed it inside the lid. I suddenly noticed how little light she was receiving before. This is much brighter and fills the cage. She is moving better, at least from what I can tell. My son brought her downstairs to spend time with her on Monday...

    suddenly weak

    She's never been especially consistent with her eating, so it's hard to know how she's feeling as far as that goes, but she looks a little fatter and my son says she's moving better. She's back up on her basking rock like she usually likes to do. For a little while she was propped up on her...

    Thank you for replying so quickly. I have not ordered the bulb and hood yet, but I wanted to make sure I got the right size. So far we have been using the dome light that came with the set up. We have a new pet shop that just opened up and they have a lot of reptile stuff, are cheaper and closer...

    suddenly weak

    You guys were very helpful in trying to figure out what Jupiter needed a few months ago. She was bleeding on her back and had a cut on her side. You recommended raw unpasteurized honey and that combined with betadine baths has been very helpful. I have a couple more questions to fix a new issue...

    Sores on the back

    She did well this morning. I put her in her betadine bath while I cleaned her cage. Her little tub was sitting on a bath mat in the bathroom while I was cleaning her accessories in the tub. She just sat there, watching me or looking around. I had sprayed her cage with the reptile habitat spray...

    Sores on the back

    Jupiter went to the vet this evening. She said to begin using the ointment again for her ear and that it looked better than last time, so that's easier. she didn't sedate her and just tried to pull at it a little. She sounded confident that it would work itself out. We have a followup appt in 3...

    Sores on the back

    I'll try to remember to get a picture and post it. The vet got some of it out last time, but some of it had hardened like a little pebble. I could hear it scraping when she tried to get it with tweezers. That's why she said to try the ointment and baths to let it soften and come free. It's kind...
