 Help!!!!!!!!!!!!!Now

My basilisk is not using his hind legs to move. I just got him a uvb 18" strip light today that is 5 % uvb and 30 % UVA. Should I maybe get calcium dust for his food? Also he was sitting on his (bed) and he pooped on it is that a sign of something? He can still move his hind legs kind of but whenever I put him on his branch he slips. So I think that maybe I should get Calcium dust right? And if I am right what is the best kind? Should I take him to see a vet or just talk to a vet because there aren’t any reptile vets around Niceville, Florida Right?
This is the light that i got him the reptiglo 5.0 is that alright?

you shld try to speak to a vet. also do you think it may have injured itself by falling or something.my bassy fell from height about a week ago and couldn’t use its back legs but after about half an hour it was fine.try puting it in water to see how much movement it has. if its tail doesnt move it may have hurt its back.

It’s a bone problem. he’s okay now, though. we have him in a 20 gallon on (my)lol bedabeast substrate. he’s still recovering but is okay. the problem was that he wasn’t given calcium or mineral dust so his bones were/are a bit weak, but does have a 5.0 UVB light. that’s probably what saved him from getting a bad MBD problem.
