i can probably find spaggetti squash but i found turnip greens, i took the greens, pedialyte, and butternut squash baby food and mixed it in a coffee grinder and it got all the leaves mushed up and then when i feed it to him i mix in some repcal calcium. he hasnt pooped in a week but i have given him a bath every day sometimes two times a day but i can feel a small kot in the middle of his belly below his rib area, im guessing it is his stomach and the food is having a hard time digesting, what can i do?

Ok give him a drop or two of olive oil to help things get moving.Also when he is in the bath gently massage that area in a circular motion where you feel the lump downward towards the vent.You can also get some canned pumpkin or applesauce(no sugar or spice on either) and give him some of that to help as well.

i got the repta aid flukers but i was looking at the nutrients and protein is 28% and the calcium .85% phosphorus .70% is this ok? i also got jurassi cal calcium supplement , what should i give him when? he also pooped right after i read your message. he no longer has a lump in his stomach so he is good.

Great news that he pooped :D Yes the repta aid is fine just follow the dosage instructions on the label.The jurasical is not a great calcium because it has no d3.Did you open it yet?Can you exchange it for repcal+D3 phosphorous free?Is he feeling better now that he pooped?

Getting ready for another day. Feeling sleepy. 😴
I just walked into my room and instead of looking at me, Swordtail's eyes darted directly to the ice cream drumstick I'm holding
Finally replaced Swordtail's substrate
I miss you so much, Amaris 💔
What is a quick way to warm up a cold beardie? His heating element went out overnight and now he's very cold.
