    I recommend continuing on with your current powdered supplement plan until Mae recovers. To me it seems like "little-by-little" is the best way to correct the MBD we see. I don't know whether adding UVB right now would "shock" her system??? I think it's "safer" just to wait.

    The UVB bulb will be brighter than your current 75 watt incandescent that you've dimmed.

    Remember, Digs, it's Zoo Med's Reptisun mini-compact 10.0 bulb that you want -- just like Marillion uses for his leo. For that I totally recommend either Zilla's 8.5 inch diameter dome Marillion linked or the similar Fluker's 8.5 inch diameter dome I use. I do not recommend the deep dome fixture. We are grateful to Dr. Fran Baines for sharing that advice with Marillion! I think Fluker's has been changing over to reflective coatings on all their domes.

    It's what HE uses for his Gecko, yes Elizabeth. ROFL!!

    I agree with Elizabeth. Erring on the side of caution is never a bad thing. As long as you are following the supplementation schedule, no reason to switch the bulb right now.

    Do you think Mae's ready to go back to UVB? Lol sorry I just hear so many benefits about UVB I just can't wait to go back to using it . Also thinking about the deep heat projector.

    Have you bought her mini-compact 10.0 UVB bulb + a shallow dome fixture?

    Ya know, Digs, Mae has a good thing going. Think of the improvement she's made under your watchful eyes! I think your videos show that her legs are getting stronger. Patience is a good thing too. I think it's best that she gets as good as possible, before you switch to her mini-compact 10.0 UVB bulb. If we switch to UVB now, there will be an adjustment period, because of the brightness of the mini-compact 10.0 bulb. Leos don't like change. Mae may hide from those beneficial rays. Adding UVB right now may set her improvement back. I don't believe it's worth the gamble.

    As long as Mae's gait is improving, there's no harm in continuing her current supplement schedule. Let's wait until February 2nd to see how she is. It's really a short wait considering that she could have 20 years + left in her life. Are you ready?

    Perhaps you could take her to a vet who specializes in reptiles. That vet could x-ray Mae's bones to determine bone density. The cost of that visit could be $150+: a visit charge as well as a radiograph charge. Click: https://arav.site-ym.com/search/custom.asp?id=3661

    I'm looking forward to Mae using UVB too.

    Ok I can wait, I just ordered the Arcadia Deep Heat Projector along with a Herpstat Ez1. I haven't gotten the new UVB light yet as I'm awaiting the all clear with Mae's improvement.

    1 Jan 2020: I just heard that 1 person has had several DHPs fail after only ~4 months of use. That person is awaiting feedback from Arcadia.

    Perhaps this person's recent experience with several Arcadia's DHPs is just an isolated instance. I hope so.

    Did they use a pulse proportional thermostat or just an on/off one?
