Treatment

 

A well-balanced diet and ample nutrition is necessary to combat metabolic bone disease. Therefore, the veterinarian will work with you to make a diet that best fits the amphibian's needs. In severe cases, they will prescribe calcium and vitamin D supplements.

 

Living and Management

 

In addition to following the veterinarian's prescribed diet, they might also be recommended that you provide the animal with full-spectrum lighting and ultraviolet B (UV-B) lighting.
