For the past several weeks my 7 year old White’s tree frog has been staying on the bottom rather than hanging out at the top of the tank as he has done for years. He has been eating and behaving normally otherwise. I read that this could be from a calcium deficiency so started giving him Exo Terra calcium + D3 yesterday - dusted on his crickets. How long should it take until I see improvement?

If an animal has become calcium deficient, it takes a while for that to resolve in terms of bone density, and depending on severity of the issue, there could be permanent negative effects. More information on how long your frog was kept without being fed supplements would help.

Probably everyone here is going to tell you to switch to repashy calcium plus as your supplement though, as it is generally considered the most effective source of calcium/D3 and vitamins. I have no personal experience with any supplements other than repashy, since it's the only one I have ever used for my frogs.
