Need help finding UVB light replacement

Villgax has been hiding under her rock hide for.. a good week or two. I’m not sure what’s wrong with her, she eats sometimes when I offer but she doesn’t come out at all and has slept days away. I think it might be the UVB bulb, but I’m not sure. I’m trying to find a place to get ones. But I’m not 100% if they’re right or not, this is one I’ve found so far. Arcadia D3+ Reptile Lamp T5 12% UVB
If anyone can help, maybe send me a link if that one is wrong

That is a good bulb -- please get it -- make sure the distance and placement is correct --- do you have a screen on the tank or wood top?

Wood top, I already have a bulb and holder (can’t think of the word). But I remember reading somewhere that, even if the bulb hasn’t blown, you still need to change it as it losses what it gives the dragon after a while. I have no clue of this is true or not. And actually as of replying to this, she’s come out and is under her basking light.

Your talking about a hood / fixture that has a reflector in it? And yes the bulb needs to be changed out every year I recommend approx a month prior to --- the hood/ fixture needs to go inside the tank approx 12-15 inches directly above the basking decor piece

I see my lizard is being given Allopurinol 100ml tablet 10mg/ml (0.4) and tramadol 0.2ml every other day to help with gout. I have tramadol at home can I water it down and give it to her and if so do anyone know how much to water down ?
