    How often is Iggy out and about when the UVB is on? He may still be testing UVB out.

    Which dusting schedule have you been using? Schedule 124?

    He has bee sticking either his front half or back half out for a few minutes in the morning (been working long shifts the past couple days so i dont see him from 12PM to 12AM) and i'm using schedule 144 that you suggested on page 3 of the thread.

    Within 2-4 weeks Iggy may have fully adjusted to UVB. Since Repashy's Calcium Plus (all-in-one multivitamins) contains cholecalciferol (D3), please switch supplements soon.

    Zoo Med's Reptivite withOUT D3 can be found at the Reptile Supply Company based in Lodi, Callfornia. They also stock Zoo Med's Repti Calciums with and withOUT D3. Since plain calcium never expires, you might wish to order NOW calcium carbonate for humans from Amazon instead.

    UVB Weekly Schedule 155 for leopard geckos 12-18 months old
    (with UVB)
    Early stage metabolic bone disease (MBD) symptoms include uneven (lopsided) gait, walking on one or both "elbows", bowed limbs, belly dragging, and an underbite.
    The Reptile Supply Company based in Lodi, California stocks Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins withOUT D3.
    Powdered supplement recommendations for leopard geckos 12-18 months old depend upon how much your leo has grown thus far and whether he/she is walking strongly. Leopard geckos usually reach maximum size at about 18 months old.

    Feed lightly dusted prey 3x per week.

    • Monday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with Zoo Med's ReptiVite multivitamins withOUT D3
    • Wednesday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with pure precipitated calcium carbonate withOUT D3 (Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW human brand calcium)
    • Friday > > crickets or dubia lightly dusted with pure precipitated calcium carbonate withOUT D3 (Zoo Med's Repti Calcium or NOW human brand calcium)
    • Saturday > > Optional: mealworms, superworms, or black soldier fly larvae (Phoenix worms) >> no dusting


    ***** When your leopard gecko is taking advantage of appropriate UVB rays, Dr. Fran Baines (Reptile Lighting group's lighting guru) strongly recommends a backup dose of powdered D3 @ 1 feeding per month! Just substitute 1 D3 calcium dusting for 1 plain calcium dusting that week only. *****

    Did you just order Zoo Med's Reptivite with or withOUT D3? The Reptile Supply Company based in Lodi, California carries both Reptivite products. They have excellent prices!!!

    Had you been using Repashy's Calcium Plus?

    Thanks, Gutler!

    I hope Iggy will thrive on Zoo Med's supplements too.
