So my fiance found a second vet and ran everything by them. They are happy with everything we have done so far for Liz and did not tell us to change uvb lights. As of now we are trying to get her to poop. She has gotten used to my fiance being the one to handle her for all the things she doesn't like so we are changing the routine up a bit. We will have neighbors checking in on her every couple of hours while we are work to make sure she doesn't get onto her back.
The vet told you to keep the coil??

I wasn't there for the conversation only what my fiance told me. I think that they are ok with it because we take her outside too.

Coils are bad ---- I cannot stress this enough --- the only thing working in this dragons favor is by you taking her outside --- I would strongly recommend getting rid of the coil -- its doing more damage to her --- please shut it off and replace w/ what I recommended --- I would not listen to what that vet is telling you -- more bad advice that they have done no research on these coils

I couldn't agree with Karrieree more. There was a thread a week or so back of a beardie that was going due to a coil. Also a coil does not fan out so the beardie get no benefit unless it's right under it. Which leads to another problem. The uvb is super concentrated and is oft times to intense so the beardie won't spend any significant time under it.

I would like to thank everyone for all of their advise on this post. Unfortunately Liz has crossed the rainbow bridge today.

I am so sorry- uvb is extremely important ---correct uvb - coils are inadequate -- so many die under these uvb's

i feel so sad reading your about me 😢
Clapton is acclimating okay I think. He's quick as lightning so I'm not sure how much I should bring him out of his house yet. He's not at all interested in his salad though. I wonder if I should change what I'm giving him. Least he's eating his crickets.

Things to do:
Buy calcium powder
Material to raise surface for basking spot
Scenery decals for back of tank
Taking my beardie for a walk
Hi everyone, I have a question please. I have a thick branch I got from outside. It has been in freezing temperatures so I know that it is insect free. I took it off the ground and sat it up during a night we got down to 15 so the entire thing would freeze. Well tonight I put white vinegar all over it too cleanse it since it won't fit in my oven. Do I need to rinse with water tomorrow or is it fine left alone dried?
