My bearded dragon has had a problem for a couple months and is lethargic, losing weight, isn’t eating, and is not pooping I just got liquid calcium for him and I also put another UVB light in there but he seems to wanna be on the cool side instead of the hot side

Hello,

I am not familiar with the UVB light brand so as Karrie suggested, one of the brands either the Reptisun
10 T5 or the Arcadia D3 12% or 14% T5 tubes. The UVB exposure is crucial for their health & helps with
absorption of the calcium & other vitamins & minerals, too.
Which liquid calcium do you have? How old is your dragon?

What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
