    Default Armpit bubbles wonít go away.


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    My vitamin schedule was (cal without D always kept in tank):
    Cal-D every other feeding.
    Cal-without D in-between.
    Mult V on one feeding every two weeks.

    When I noticed the armpit bubbles I cut out the calcium on meals and only did cal-D on one feeding a week and kept the Mult V the same.

    I seen a small decrease in the armpit bubbles but yesterday I noticed they got bigger I scared to not use the cal with d at lease once a month because I donít want MBD...

    Iím so confused because the breeder kept calcium in the tank and dusted with feedings no problem, so why is he getting just big armpit bubbles with me?

    How old is Sobek? Please share a picture.
    1. Which brand D3 calcium are you using?
    2. Which brand multivitamin?

    Age changes metabolism. Growing geckos generally require more calcium carbonate than mature geckos do.

    Vitamin D3 is fat soluble. That means a single dusting of D3 calcium sticks around ALL week and metabolizes plain calcium during that specific week.

    I don't supplement my 17.5 year old Ptychozoon kuhli ("flying" gecko). She has huge calcium sacs on either side of her face. As far as I can see, she has no signs of MBD.

    She seems to get all the nutrients she needs from the crickets I feed her. I feed the crickets 24/7 with finely ground Zoo Med's ADULT Bearded Dragon Food. Maybe my cricket's diet is too rich for her?
