    Default American Bullfrog with MBD?

    I've owned a young female American bullfrog for about a year and a half now. I caught her in my neighbor's driveway when I was 11, so of course I really didn't know how to properly care for her. I've noticed that she's grown about 1-1.5 inches in this time, and I feel she should be larger? I don't really have a regular feeding schedule for her or my frogs, but they all seem okay. I'm going to order some Dubia roaches sometime soon, so she will start having those on a regular basis. She has a very difficult time walking, which is why I'm worried. I will post a picture either tonight or tomorrow of her, but I want an idea of what I should do to treat her.

    For MBD should I use calcium with or without D3 if I have a UVB lamp? I don't want her to overdose.

    Sorry it took so long for someone to get back to you. If you have a UVB light, then use calcium without D3. Keep in mind UVB lights get less effective with time so be sure it's replaced accordingly. I personally do not use UVB lights and supplement with calcium including D3 with no issue, so either method works. I hope your girl gets better soon.

    She is doing better. She hasn't gained much more strength in her back legs but her arms look much better,
