He's not being great about eating salads lately, he'll eat a couple of bites a day but never finishes it. I do spray the salad with water. I give him zoo med calcium without D3 2-3 times a week lightly dusted on his roaches. He gets repcal multivitamin once a week.
Ok so since hes a year old I would cut back on the calcium D3 to once a week and dust his insects w/ regular calcium w/ NO phosphorus to 2 times a week his vitamins should be ok since he is eating some of the salads - and your using a T 5 UVB correct?

I don't ever use calcium with D3 he just gets plain calcium. Yeah the T5 is in a reflector inside the cage 11 inches from basking spot.

I got him when he was 5 months and I didn't since the vet told me not
I am going to ask AHBD about this and see what she thinks whether adding it in now would help - we always recommend D3 5 x per week dusted once on the insects then after a year old to 1-2 times per week depending on the UVB being used --

Ok thanks, I take him to a board certified reptile vet and she told me any amount of D3 can cause toxicity, but I'd be curious to know if it's necessary even with good UVB.

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 ?
