This is what I bought for my babies to use;

Arcadia Mini UVB Kit - 8W 400lm - 340 x 40 x 30mm - Includes 2.4% UVB Lamp

I got it from Amazon and bought 2 but I'm in England, U.K. Each 1 comes with a 1.5m lead that plugs into the mains socket & an extension lead which is about 3m long & that's normally used to connect another light which is what I've done, but the other extension has been connected to the mains lead to make that nearly 5m long, which allows me to reach a plug socket as my cage is custom built and fixed to the wall. They light up the cage enough to give the birds what they need but as they are only 8W, they also allow for areas to be in shadows in case they want to be away from it. I have mine on all day & night for them until they settle to sleep & then I turn them off. They love to bask right in front of them at times & other times they move to a perch further back in the cage, but they have the choice now. Hope that helps with the lights, as for the vets, mine haven't been yet so I don't know what's normal or not. I do know that many pets don't like vets though, just like humans don't like dentists. It could be that he hasn't had his nailed trimmed before so that along with going to a vet has unsettled him. Hopefully he gets back to normal after you give him more TLC.
