Hello,

Mr. Wilson is very colorful there. How long is he?
What type of fluorescent tube light from Reptisun are you using, is it a long tube or a smaller,
compact/coil type?
They do need a good amount of UVB, yes. It is a possibility he hasn't gotten enough UVB &
that can contribute to poor absorption issues.
Please post a picture of the UVB so we can see it. So, how much sunlight unfiltered does he
get on a daily basis & is that the only UVB he normally gets?

Hard to say how much because we are in and out of the sun all day and if he doesnt want it i let him go to the shade. Probably about an hour on average The bulb I am using now is a 22" small width 10.0. it doesnt put off heat so he has no reason to not stay under it when we are home. I am attaching a pic of the tag on the fixture. thanks

Hello,

Ok, that light will be fine, it is a T5 Reptisun 10 so he should be getting adequate UVB lighting.
Be sure it is mounted directly beside the basking light, too. He does need a good amount of
time under the UVB light & basking for optimal health.
How is he doing today?

The infection side has been bleeding. It looks like it may be working its way out. the lump or swelling is still pretty big though. Everything has me pretty stressed out.

This lump is a lot larger than the other day. I am not taking it well. loosing everything in the fire is just the tip of my issues. I have been through more than anyone should have to deal with and I struggle. Im broke, hot, in pain, and loosing my only real friend. I cried all day. I cant take loosing him now.

So sorry to hear this, can you start up a Gofundme since you lost your home and your pet needs help ? Many people are able to raise money to ease the burdens and have something for emergency vet bills, food, etc.

Hello,

So sorry for you both! I agree, a gofundme could help out.
You mentioned the lump has gotten larger, it is bleeding off & on right now?
Have you used the raw honey on the area yet?

We are all pulling for you both.

So freaking handsome I just love youuuuu so much 💕
There is something wrong with my beardies left eye!! I included a picture where it shows what her right eye looks like then the others are what her left eye is. She always has it closed (as much as she can) and she finally opened it for a bit when i misted her. I don’t know what i could be doing wrong and it’s not from sand because she doesn’t have it in her cage.
