    Here's another idea to help out Mira's MBD. Make a paste with a little Zoo Med's Repti Calcium with D3 + water. See if she will lick some paste from her lips.

    Your link posted fine.

    Here are a couple ways to post photos from the beginning of my Leopard Gecko Care Sheet.


    (5) Posting Photos/Videos...inline or attached

    • To insert a video find 3 lines of choices at the top where you make a post. On the second line, 15 icons in from the left, you'll see the video icon. It looks like a ladder. Click this video icon & paste your video URL right there. Your video and arrow like you may have noticed here will be displayed, not just a link.
    • To insert a photo use the "image" icon next to the "ladder" icon.
      • Click: Go Advanced under the reply box
      • Then click: Manage Attachments
      • First upload your images or video to a free Imgur or YouTube account.
      • Then use that jpeg or URL to upload your image or video onto Geckos Unlimited.
      • Click "insert image url" OR "insert video url"
      • Then copy & paste

    Imgur and YouTube offer free online sites for sharing photos and videos.

    Here's another way to post a picture.
    1. At the foot of your post click the Edit Post button.
    2. Then click Go Advanced button.
    3. Scroll all the way down to Management Attachments. Click.
    4. Click: Add Files. Select a photo from your files and upload it.
    5. Drag that photo into the box beneath.
    6. ***Click both buttons on the right: "Insert Inline" and then click "Done".

    Thanks for watching the video! I do see that now. They told me that she wouldnít eat and was small but said nothing about MBD. He did give a discounted price for her. I fed her last night. She ate five crickets dusted with ZooMed Calcium with D3. She didnít seem too interested in it. After she ate, she went back in her warm hide and went back to sleep. She was up and active this morning and then went back to sleep. Iíve been keeping an eye on her today. I havenít seen any poop either from her first feeding two days ago, but Iím sure itís fine. Do you think I should take her to the vet or just try to keep her supplemented now that I have her?

    And I will definitely try the paste when she wakes up!

    You're welcome! From here on out let's follow Schedule 124.

    Her MBD may improve, but probably not her underbite. At least it's not impacting her eating.

    ***** I don't think there's more a vet could do as long as she's eating and getting regular supplements (@ 3 feedings per week). As long as her warm dry hide ranges between 88-92*F, she should eat.

    Temperatures - A temperature gradient from warm to cool maintains your leo's health. Here's a temperature guide for all leopard geckos as measured with the probe of a digital thermometer or a temp gun (and controlled by a thermostat set at 91*F/32.8*C).

    Place the thermostat's probe and a digital thermometer's probe together right on top of the substrate underneath the warm dry hide. If you use a UTH + a CHE you'll need 2 separate thermostats, because ground and air temperatures are substantially different.

    • Warm dry hide ground temperature: 88-92 F (31.1-33.3 C) inside a leo's warm dry hide.
    • Warm humid/moist hide: Also place the humid hide 100% on top of the heat mat. Keep temperatures similar to the warm dry hide.
    • Cool dry hide ground temperature: 70ish-75 F (21.1-23.9 C) Usually the cool end ground temperature matches the room temperature where the enclosure sits.
    • no greater than 82ish F (27.8ish C) air temperature - 4 inches (10 cm) above ground on the warm end
    • no greater than 75 F (23.9 C) air temperature - 4 inches (10 cm) above ground on the cool end

    Leave the heat mat/UTH on 24/7. If you wish, during the night turn off overhead lighting/heating (~12 hours on and ~12 hours off) unless ambient room temperatures drop lower than 67ish*F (19.4*C).
