    Probably Gout, Please Help!

    Hi Karrie, again, you've asked me this already. I understand it's hard to keep track of all the people posting on this site :) It's a wide-mesh, and it's about 10 inches from their basking spot. At that spacing, it doesn't need to go in their tank, which we agreed on earlier in the thread...

    Probably Gout, Please Help!

    Hello Tracie, Yes, Cherry is eating their greens, which we are thankful for. Cherry is on antibiotics for septic arthritis (which is why the joints are swelling). The MBD seems to be somewhat secondary to the infection at the moment, seeing as Cherry's bones are straight. They did not give...

    Probably Gout, Please Help!

    Hello Tracie, My husband and I took Cherry to a second vet (one we found through the reptile website Karrie provided.) We took them down, had an exam done, and the vet believed it to be MBD, but did consider the possibility of gout. (We saw our new vet on Sunday, Nov. 28th). We had X-rays taken...

    Hello! I've been taking pictures every day to actually be able to compare the swelling of Cherry's limbs. The swelling of their left back leg has gone down, but is still very stiff (less so in the evenings, more so in the mornings). I really do think it's gout, and would love advice on diet to...

    Hello Tracie, Thank you for responding! It's just the one dragon, Cherry. Okay, I will get their basking rock up to 10 inches from their uvb and basking. We just got the black cherry juice yesterday, and gave them .5-1ml to start to see if they would take it. Thankfully they liked the taste...

    Probably Gout, Please Help!

    The uvb is on top of the screen (larger mesh screen), and I know that before now it hasn't been adequate (realized that after reading through all of the swollen limb threads). We just got the T5 fixture with reflector, with Arcadia 12% bulb yesterday to rectify this issue. It is currently 12...

    Probably Gout, Please Help!

    After scouring these threads for all information regarding swollen legs, I'm guessing that my baby bearded dragon named Cherry has gout. On Wednesday of this last week (Oct 3rd), my husband noticed that their back left leg was a bit swollen, while I noticed that they were favoring their front...
