Help!

I posted last week and did receive some help, but I now can’t even get into a vet due to covid for a few weeks and I’m getting superbly nervous. if anyone could tag Tracie (Drache613) because I can’t send her a message and I’ve been told she is the goddess of beardies !

I’m in need of a bit of help. I have a 2 year old female beardie that I’m almost positive is Gravid. This will be her first clutch. She’s running around like a maniac crossed with a Tasmanian devil, eating very little (maybe one or two worms dosed in calcium), glass surfing as soon as I turn on her uvb in the morning, and diggin infrequently. She might dig once a day in her viv. I have a lay box with coconut fibre mixed with clay sand that she wants nothing to do with. I put her in and leave her for about an hour 3-5 times a day. And she just sits and waits until I let her out. I’m giving her a bath once a day for about 1/2-1 hour. I’m nervous she’s not getting enough calcium because she really has no interest in eating much. Im also terrified she could become egg bound. Will she know when to start digging (silly question I know) and is there another way to get her more calcium? I do have liquid calcium as well as powder. Could I mix some liquid into repashy and see if she eats that? She’s not a big drinker so I think it’ll be hard to get her to drink some diluted in water. This little girl is like my daughter And has gone through so much with, so I could never let anything happen to her.

Hello, I know dealing with a gravid female can be quite stressful. She should not be egg bound as long as she was healthy before becoming gravid. I would suggest to keep putting her in her dig box, and when you do give her lots of privacy. Also I know this odd question, but who is Drache613? I've never heard of them, are you sure you're using the right name?

I'm sorry to tell you but after looking it up, I don't think a person named drache613 exists on this form. Also most of the moderators have not been seen in a very long time. The only two moderators I see would be Josh and Yvonne G .

Oh crap. Well that’s alright then, I’m glad I’ve got people like you to help. Sadly vets aren’t even as helpful as these forums 99% of the time. So thank you again for the help. I’m more stressed than Littlefoot is about this whole ordeal.
